Zurich Insurance Group has launched Zurich eXchange, a global API marketplace that brings together services from across the Zurich Group.
The shared API management platform has been adopted by 15 Zurich business units and currently covers 1,433 managed APIs, with more than 63 million API-enabled transactions per month.
The platform also offers 50 open APIs for customers, distributors and partners to connect digitally with Zurich and integrate new Zurich insurance products into their own digital channels.
Through these APIs, for example, Zurich is enabling its commercial claims customers to seamlessly access their latest claims data and policy documents digitally at any time.
“The launch of Zurich eXchange marks an important milestone: it enables partners and business to seamlessly integrate with our products and services, and promotes innovation to deliver real value for our customers,”
said Ericson Chan, Group Chief Information and Digital officer, Zurich.
“While APIs aren’t new, Zurich eXchange demonstrates Zurich is serious about doing digital business. By collecting our APIs in one place, they can be shared more effectively both across Zurich and with our customers and partners,”
said Frank Verkerk, Group Chief Platform Officer, Zurich.
