Allianz Trade and BPL Revolutionize Insurance Enquiry Processing with Digital Integration

(IN BRIEF) Allianz Trade and BPL have launched a pioneering collaboration aimed at streamlining the processing of bank non-payment insurance enquiries. Utilizing API integration via Verisk’s Whitespace platform, the initiative eliminates manual data entry inefficiencies and enhances data security. This partnership aims to boost operational efficiency, reduce errors, and catalyze market growth in the insurance sector.

(PRESS RELEASE) MUNICH, 18-Jun-2024 — /EuropaWire/ — Allianz Trade and BPL have joined forces in a groundbreaking collaboration aimed at revolutionizing the handling of enquiry data in the bank non-payment insurance sector. This initiative, launched via the digital trading platform Whitespace from Verisk, marks a significant departure from traditional methods burdened by manual data entry and fragmented information formats.

Currently, the market sees over 10,000 enquiries annually, each requiring underwriters to manually input data from diverse, unstructured sources—a process prone to errors and resource drain. Through their API integration on Whitespace, Allianz Trade and BPL have established a standardized framework for exchanging enquiry data seamlessly between their systems. This innovation not only enhances operational efficiency but also minimizes risks associated with human error.

Christophe White, Global Head of Specialty Credit at Allianz Trade, emphasized the strategic shift towards freeing underwriters to focus on core underwriting tasks, enhancing client service and operational precision. The collaboration leverages Verisk’s Whitespace platform, ensuring security and fostering an open, independent marketplace environment.

Sian Aspinall, Group CEO of BPL, highlighted the scalability and inclusivity of their model, designed to accommodate the entire market. As more stakeholders adopt this digital approach—whether through API integration or direct use of the Whitespace platform—the initiative promises to alleviate industry-wide inefficiencies and spur market expansion.

Grant Elliott, Chief Commercial Officer for Whitespace at Verisk, commended the partnership’s commitment to addressing long-standing industry challenges. He underscored Whitespace’s role in facilitating digital transformation across insurance sectors, urging market participants to embrace data-centric trading solutions for operational enhancement and sustainable growth.

This collaboration represents a pivotal step towards modernizing insurance practices, enhancing data integrity, and fostering a more agile marketplace poised for future innovation and expansion.
