“Now that we have built an end-to-end insurance compliance tool that integrates with existing property management workflows and tools, Mark is joining us at the perfect moment to help solve a real pain point for one of the largest segments of the Canadian economy.”
Fujita said: “APOLLO is uniquely positioned in the Canadian market. “With our innovative approach to both technology and insurance, I’m excited to leverage my embedded insurance experience in the property management space.”
The APOLLO Exchange platform aids insurance agents and their clients to procure policies rapidly remotely, on any device, round the clock.
Compared to standard paper-based approaches, APOLLO uses wide-ranging data and complex algorithms for quoting, payment process and issuing policies for small businesses and people without needing human intervention.
The company formed a partnership with real estate software solutions provider Yardi Systems to deliver an insurance platform integrated into the latter’s software.
This embedded interface offers a seamless digital insurance experience for tenants and landlords in Canada, the company noted.
