Honcho, the Durham-based insurtech disruptor, today announced a partnership with Churchill Insurance, a brand of U K Insurance Limited, as the first home insurance provider for its integrated marketplace. Honcho will be the launch partner for a new API platform for Churchill that provides estimated prices for home insurance.
From today, customers can secure an instant estimated price for Churchill buildings, contents or combined home insurance, without ever leaving Honcho’s award winning webapp or having to enter any additional information. Using information already stored within their Honcho account, customers can get an estimated price for home insurance from Churchill within seconds. With a simple click through to the Churchill website customers just need to confirm their details, tailor the quote to their specific needs and purchase the product.
Honcho’s platform has been designed to be seamlessly interconnected with other insurance businesses, and their rapid integration model made Honcho the ideal launch partner for Churchill.
Speaking about the launch, Partners Director, Andy Broadfield at Churchill Insurance, said: “We constantly strive to innovate and find exciting new routes to market to make life easier for our customers. Honcho’s intuitive platform enables data to be pre-populated making the purchasing journey ever easier. The insurance landscape continues to evolve and the application of innovative technologies to help customers will enable brands to secure an edge in this incredibly competitive marketplace.”
Honcho’s chief of products, Tom Spence, sees the launch as a major step in bringing insurtechs and large insurers together to the benefit of consumers:
“The insurance industry isn’t noted for its ability to work quickly and collaboratively when it comes to technology integrations between organisations, but this pioneering new integrated solution steps things up several gears. Churchill wanted to work with a partner who had the agility to rapidly integrate and Honcho’s marketplace platform, with its inherent API-based structure, made for the perfect launch destination. With dozens of partners already integrated into the Honcho ecosystem we’re delighted to welcome Churchill Insurance as our latest addition.”
Churchill home insurance is now available to Honcho customers via the Honcho webapp at gethoncho.com.
