Marlborough, MA – February 16th, 2023, Privilege Underwriters Reciprocal Exchange (PURE), a leading policyholder-owned insurer of high-net-worth individuals, has committed to a multi-year agreement extending its use of OneShield Enterprise to include OneShield’s pre-built catalog of APIs through the Services Designer tool and unlimited access and use of the extensive use case library.
The client relationship with PURE, going back 16+ years, is among OneShield’s longest and has been highly collaborative. “The technical and executive teams at PURE have been a constant source of new ideas and feedback on a wide range of our products and processes,” says OneShield’s former CRO Liza Smith. “This is the very definition of a successful client/vendor partnership – formed at the time PURE was a startup to writing over $2 billion in premiums today.”
Most recently, PURE and OneShield took the opportunity to advance their ongoing engagement model by identifying new best practices for sharing the latest technology developments, setting new goals for partnering at all departmental levels of PURE, and creating a formal plan to further enhance the OneShield Enterprise platform to support PURE’s rapid growth objectives. “For PURE, these new best practices will serve to further our team members’ capabilities and experiences of self-managing the technology platform while still accessing the latest knowledge and innovations being developed by OneShield’s engineering and product teams,” says Jason Lichtenthal, PURE’s SVP & Chief Information Officer.
OneShield’s Services Designer implements a collection of vendor and product-independent pre-configured APIs. This collection of services allows external applications to remotely execute business transactions on the OneShield platform. Any processing that has traditionally been tied to the user interface, or available solely within the platform, has been de-coupled and made available as-a-service. These services enable external systems to exchange data with the OneShield platform and expose insurance product definitions to third-party systems – enabling, for instance, portals or specialized functional applications such as risk management.
“We welcome this opportunity to deepen the connection between our two organizations,” says Smith. “Our commitment to aligning our respective teams with PURE’s strategic growth plans is just one reason they have been an advocate for OneShield, and we look forward to the next phase of this long-standing partnership.”
