The partnership will help make data accessible to all in the placement process

Global reinsurance placement platform Supercede has partnered with Zywave company, Web Connectivity Ltd (WCL) to boost the expansion of its reinsurance ecosystem.

This will enable brokers and carrier to transform their operations using structured data and a Common Data Record (CDR) across all aspects of the reinsurance lifecycle worldwide.

Speaking about the partnership, Jerad Leigh, Supercede’s co-founder and chief executive, said: “WCL has a fantastic track record of enabling brokers and carriers to effectively and efficiently transform their operations using structured data, spanning the placement of risks, accounting and settlement, and claims. As such, we knew from the start that they would be an important partner to ensure that clients were able to make the most out of working with Supercede.

“As we continue to develop Supercede’s offering for the market, we are excited to be working with WCL to make sure that placement data is seamlessly transferred to critical down-stream solutions, to deliver on the efficiency and data needs that our clients demand.”

It follows Supercede hiring former Willis Re chief technology officer as its new chef product officer.

Making data accessible to all

Connecting Supercede placements with WCL enables the market to enter data only once, which can then be replicated between systems, thereby eliminating the need to re-key data multiple times.

James Willison, managing director, WCL said: “For WCL, partnering with Supercede made fantastic sense. As a business that is dedicated to supporting clients through their digital journey, working with an innovative company such as Supercede is invaluable to our mission.

“Through the partnership, we will bring essential access to data and digital placing benefits to our roster of mutual clients. Both WCL and Supercede have a similar outlook and aspirations for data in the market – to make data accessible to all to increase operational efficiency.

“It has been great to work with Supercede at the beginning of its development and we look forward to continuing the partnership for the benefit of the global reinsurance market.”

Supercede is a reinsurance platform of choice for cedents, brokers, and reinsurers keen to access ‘reinsurance that connects’ by bringing together data, deals, and people.
