So what does Insurance-in-a-Box or Insurance-as-a-Service mean?

By manual, we mean usually via the required PDF’s / Excel forms sent through email, and if the partner is…

Do you keep on hearing that ‘data is the new oil’, and every time you pick up a new insurance industry report the words that always keep sticking out is digital transformation.

There’s an explosion of innovation happening in the world of insurance or insurtech, at every part of the value chain.
