Why Vittoria hub?

“When searching [define Insurtech], the first result is from Investopedia: Insurtech refers to the use of technology innovations designed to squeeze out savings and efficiency from the current insurance industry model.

It is really reductive, basically the essence of the digital innovation is to give everyone a unique and customized experience, with a scale factor.

For us, Insurtech defines the use of innovative technologies to develop new value propositions, delete frictions, combine new distribution channels with traditional ones and offer unforgettable experiences to our customers.”

Why Vittoria hub?

For the Open Innovation to be successful, it requires mindset, technologies and architectures that are really “open” to interoperate with third-party systems, data and business models.
The concept of “ecosystem” that I have found Vittoria hub is to the future of Insurtech more or less as the Digital Marketplaces were to the digital contents when they first appeared on the web … an opportunity for everyone to Share, Grow and Innovate. Together”
