Zurich launches Zurich eXchange

Zurich has launched Zurich eXchange, a newly created API marketplace that brings together services from across the Zurich Group.

With Zurich eXchange, customers and partners can leverage a collection of Zurich’s APIs globally. Current use cases include commercial claims customers accessing their latest claims data and policy documents. Other APIs allow customers and partners to integrate new Zurich insurance products into their own digital channels.

Speaking of APIs, Chubb recently announced three new additions to its API marketplace Chubb Studio: Chubb-developed software development kits that enable the company’s partners to embed products and services natively within their apps; the option to add products and services from other insurance carriers, third-party or non-Chubb companies; and the Blink by Chubb experience, previously available only in the US, to other regions around the world.

“The launch of Zurich eXchange marks an important milestone: it enables partners and business to seamlessly integrate with our products and services, and it plays a key role in promoting innovation to deliver real value for our customers.” – Ericson Chan, group chief information and digital officer.

“While APIs aren’t new, Zurich eXchange demonstrates Zurich is serious about doing digital business. Our new API-led approach allows us to leverage our global footprint and expertise. By collecting our APIs in one place, they can be shared more effectively both across Zurich and with our customers and partners. At the same time, we ensure that they are easy to use, well-managed and secure.” – Frank Verkerk, group chief platform officer.
