MIAMI, Nov. 16, 2017 /CNW/ -- nimbyx, an integrated social communication and purchasing technology platform provider, and HUB International, a global insurance brokerage, have teamed up to bring South Florida, insurance and related products through a revolutionary social media and digital marketplace experience. By teaming up with the Miami Dolphins and building on the Fins Gear Friday social media contest, fan base will have access to premium best-in-class insurance products at superior pricing that is unmatchable by traditional affinity or group purchasing programs.
Critical to the experience is the nimbyx technology platform that is the engine behind the experience. As an insurance broker, HUB provides insurance products and services from multiple insurance carriers. The nimbyx platform can process the purchase regardless of the manufacturer, supplier or insurance carrier in this case. This open technology is key to enabling HUB to add on additional products and services in the future, regardless of the provider, to further meet the expectations.
"There's a massive digital transformation happening across many industries to meet the speed and service needs of customers. The insurance industry is at the early stage of this disruption, as consumers rely on technology for a more convenient and fully digital experience. We're excited to be part of transforming the industry and partnering with HUB as early adopters," said Paolo Kalaw, nimbyx's Founder & CEO.
Initially, HUB will be providing fans with the opportunity to buy two top-tier insurance solutions that are traditionally reserved for discounted pricing in employer-sponsored benefit plans. Now fans can purchase Telehealth, which provides on-demand, 24/7 direct access to certified medical professionals and IDT Safeguard identity theft protection with identify theft reimbursement insurance and access to fraud resolution experts.
"The insurance industry is at a critical juncture to innovate. Joining with nimbyx and the Miami Dolphins is a pioneering step for the industry to meet the digital experience expectations of consumers and a revolutionary partnership for HUB," stated Larry Lineker, Executive Vice President, HUB International. "And, for HUB, it marks a major step to directly reach our customers' customers, which opens up a new market for our organization – a channel we are working to build out with other customers."
nimbyx founded in 2016, is a Vancouver based company focused on leveraging technology to bring a new level of convenience, simplicity and value to consumer insurance services. Our vision is to build a solution for insurance consumers that empowers them with simple digital solutions.
