Nationwide launches Partnership Platform
First-of-its-kind insurance portal makes collaborating with other companies quick, easy, and seamless
Columbus, OH – The world has become increasingly digital, and Nationwide has as well – modernizing its core systems and building digital experiences so it can connect seamlessly with partners and their customers.
Nationwide® continued to cement its position as an insurance technology leader with the launch of its new Partnership Platform on Nationwide.com. The first-of-its-kind in the insurance industry, Nationwide’s Partnership Platform enables partners and developers to digitally deliver Nationwide’s best-in-class insurance products from across an unmatched portfolio of protection solutions (including auto, home, commercial, pet) on the same digital platform, making the partner experience quick, easy and seamless.
“Consumer and business expectations have evolved, and Nationwide has created industry-leading capabilities to meet those needs digitally, at scale,” says Angie Klett, Nationwide’s Senior Vice-President of Corporate Development. “This new platform allows partners to easily work with us to improve their customer experience, create value for their customers, and drive revenue for their business.”
The Nationwide Partnership Platform serves as an integrated “front door” where companies can quickly enable a partnership with Nationwide, explore our unmatched protection solutions breadth, understand the mutual benefits of partnership, and more. To use Nationwide’s Partnership Platform, potential partners will visit partner.nationwide.com and submit their information. A Nationwide specialist will provide access to the platform, discuss the terms of the relationship, and help tailor digital solutions for their business needs. Partners can rapidly design and deploy an insurance experience leveraging Nationwide’s extensive suite of application programming interfaces (APIs.)
“What historically may have taken multiple integrations, significant cost, and extended execution time across numerous carriers can now be dramatically accelerated with Nationwide’s common, integrated digital partnership platform at a significantly lower cost,” said Klett.
Currently available through the Partnership Platform is a range of pet, auto, home, and commercial insurance solutions with more solutions coming online in the next year.
“To deliver a best-in-class digital partner experience means evolving our platforms with our customers in mind,” says Michael Carrel, Nationwide’s Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Marketing & Enterprise Growth Solutions. “Nationwide will continue to enhance and extend the Partnership Platform, incorporating feedback from partners and customers to rapidly add new features and expand our capabilities.”
