Africover24/7 will serve as an accelerator asset that is much quicker, cheaper and more sustainable than ever before.

Technology Solution providers can connect with Africover24/7 core insurance hub and leverage cloud-native technologies and open APIs to create speedy and scalable solutions for their users or customers.

In addition, because it is architected as an open ecosystem, rather than as a pre-defined vendor market place, insurers can also connect new partners without difficulty.

Africover24/7 is designed to deliver the following:

Agility: This will bring about the rapid release of modern technology solutions that are fully digital and cloud- and API-based.

Plug and play integration with a series of Insurtechs and service providers, modular approach to IT, providing the ability to incrementally ‘rip and replace’ key components.

Differentiation: Quickly launch new customer-centric products, such as parametric or on-demand coverages, meaningful digital experiences built for connected customers and prepackaged data-driven risk mitigations to enable market differentiation.

The Managing Director/CEO of AfriGlobal Insurance Brokers Limited, Mr Casmir Azubuike said, “As the insurance sector is undergoing transformation and tries to future proof itself from further disruption Africover24/7 is a breakthrough to platform economy where it’s easy to develop new products and value-added services, fit for the customer of tomorrow.
