On-demand insurance delivered

We’ve partnered with many carriers to deliver on-demand insurance. These products were built on our Insurance Cloud Services (ICS) platform and using our hackathon methodology. ICS is transforming insurance carriers around the world into digital insurers offering customized on-demand, pay-as-you-go insurance products.

Sompo + Line

This partnership brings new on-demand, pay-per-use travel insurance, advanced financial services, payments, and insurance platforms to the Asia Pacific region.

AXIS

This alliance allows AXIS to leverage digital distribution from Slice to offer intelligent and on-demand digital insurance designed to protect small businesses.

Duuo

Working with Duuo (of The Co-operators) 6 different insurance products are now in market: event, vendor, short-term rental, rent-my-stuff and tenant.

We believe in meeting customers where they are at with innovative technologies that support their lifestyles. Slice ICS is an incredible asset that has positioned SOMPO to develop and implement a progressive product solution within a short timeframe.
