TORONTO, ON, Sept. 18, 2019/InsPress/ — As of September of this year, the APOLLO Exchange powers over 50 diverse brokerages across Canada.
The 50-brokerage network forms a well-defined portfolio of insurgents as well as traditional brick and mortar organizations looking for efficiency
Apollo has been steadily onboarding new brokerages since the Exchange’s April launch. New product from new partnerships with carriers have also been added to aid in creating supply for a steadily surging network of brokers.
The Exchange empowers brokers to quote and bind insurance online through Marketplace, or to sell direct to consumers from their own website through a white labelled eCommerce solution.
“What we’re finding is that the beneficiaries of Apollo technology are not limited to digital insurgents or traditional brick and mortar organizations — everyone across the board is looking for efficiency,” says Apollo CEO Jeff McCann. “The fact that we’ve achieved this milestone with such diverse partners shows that buzzwords like ‘disruption’ don’t apply to the insurtech landscape. Success comes from enablement, not disruption.”
This announcement follows a recent data analysis showing a prominent 61 percent increase in the quote to bind ratio on the Exchange from April to August. That improvement is a direct result of insights gained from digital data collection and broker feedback.
