Sharp Mobile paves new path with APIs

Calgary, AB (Nov. 14, 2017) – Sharp Mobile is pleased to announce their collaborative partnership with Aviva which has contributed to Aviva being the first insurer to open up APIs for insurance brokerages. The APIs allow for broker connectivity to Aviva’s data, giving brokerages the power to be more agile with their innovative aspirations.

“Aviva was the first to respond to the technological needs of the broker by opening up their APIs,” says Wassim Salib, Vice President of Development for Sharp Mobile. Wassim goes on to say that the connectivity “allows brokers to be more innovative without having the roadblocks caused by current legacy software.”

“We’re on the road to the real-time connectivity we have been talking about for years, which is very exciting for the industry,” responds Ken Sedgewick, Director of Sales for Sharp Mobile, “we’re finally moving in the right direction.”

Sharp Insurance will be the first to test and launch new features that will realize the API’s potential to their client market. “We are really looking forward to seeing what these APIs can do for us and our ability to step up our customer service offerings and compete in a vastly evolving digital market,” says Sherif Gemayel, President of Sharp Insurance.

Tom Reid, Executive Director, Digital Brokers at Aviva states that “API connectivity between broker and carrier is a significant milestone for the broker channel and a major step forward in brokers and carriers working together to satisfy the demands of the modern insurance consumer.”
