“Today, many insurers are profoundly impaired by legacy technologies, and it is our mission to make high-quality technology available to all insurers, everywhere”

Socotra sees a great need in these markets as insurers, such as Socotra clients AXA and MS Amlin, increasingly realise the need for API-driven, cloud-first technologies that accelerate product launches, offer flexibility, and reduce IT expenses. Socotra Connected Core offers insurers the power and flexibility to launch any insurance product via any distribution channel. Products can be easily localised for any geography, including regulations, currency, date and address formats, and more. With Socotra App MarketPlace, insurers gain instant access to industry-leading software and data providers through a simple click-to-run experience. App MarketPlace is available today to all Socotra customers, at no additional cost.

“Today, many insurers are profoundly impaired by legacy technologies, and it is our mission to make high-quality technology available to all insurers, everywhere,” said Dan Woods, Socotra’s Founder and CEO. “We are greatly increasing our investments in Europe and hiring top talent on the ground. Our major push into the UK and European Union continues our commitment to helping insurers thrive around the world.

“Our first customer in Europe was in 2017, and since then we’ve made steady progress throughout Europe. We are seeing increasing demand for technologies like Socotra that are fast, flexible, cost-effective, and mature.”
