Partners can now embed insurance directly into their platform which gives customers more choice and simplicity when purchasing insurance policies

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- NEXT Insurance, the leading digital insurtech company transforming small business insurance, today announced the availability of NEXT Connect, a trusted embedded insurance solution for some of the leading small business software ecosystems in the U.S.  NEXT Connect enables small businesses to purchase fast and affordable coverage in a way that is convenient for them, either completely online or with the assistance of a licensed insurance agent. In addition, it provides an unmatched opportunity for trusted small business partners. Small business ecosystems in industries including payroll, POS, accounting, e-commerce, banking and others can now easily embed NEXT's insurance offerings into their existing platforms. By leveraging multiple insurance carriers, including NEXT, partners can address the full coverage needs of virtually any type of small business anywhere in the U.S.

NEXT Connect is a result of NEXT's earlier acquisition of AP Intego in March of this year.

NEXT Connect strengthens NEXT as a business and furthers the company mission to better serve even more small businesses and potential partners.

"NEXT Connect creates an unmatched opportunity for our small business ecosystem partners to embed insurance offerings directly into their platforms," said Steve Hauck, VP, Partnerships at NEXT.
