Parachute Digital Solutions Inc., a Munich Re company, reports the dispatch of Parachute 2.0, a turnkey product and carrier agnostic online insurance platform for carriers, brokers, employers, associations, and retailers to offer life and supplemental health protection plans in a simple to-utilize, secure and smoothed out digital environment.

“Parachute 2.0 reinforces our core philosophy and commitment to making insurance simpler for all involved, whether that’s carriers or brokers who want to make life easier for their clients, or Canadian families who want coverage that fits their lifestyles and the current reality,” said Richard Letarte, Head of Parachute Digital Solutions. “The new platform takes the realities of COVID-19 and the evolving needs of the online insurance consumer into account.”

The underlying Parachute 1.0 platform was dispatched in December 2017 to improve the insurance purchasing experience and brought the life and supplemental health insurance application/purchasing measure into a virtual environment by changing leads over to deals with a prompt endorsing choice.

Parachute 2.0, which was dispatched in Canada in June 2020, makes it a stride further. From showcasing to purchasing, policy issuance, administration, and analytics, Parachute 2.0 is a completely digital start to finish arrangement. The platform is accessible to any insurance transporter, dealer or retailer wishing to offer life and supplemental health insurance items to their clients. Whenever access is in all actuality, clients can buy a policy shortly or less from any PC or cell phone in a completely digitized online experience. All items sold through Parachute 2.0 are reinsured by Munich Reinsurance Company.

“The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will be with us for a long time. Continuous innovation, industry resilience and adaptable creativity are core to our value proposition,” said Letarte. “The Parachute 2.0 platform offers new levels of service to our clients, while shaping the future of our industry.”
