Working together
to shape the
insurance market of tomorrow

EcoHub is the online platform for all those active in the Swiss insurance, pension and broker industry. It’s a simple way to manage and gain access to the industry’s key services – and to play a part in shaping its future.

Our vision: for EcoHub to be a central platform for the Swiss insurance, pension and broker industry where you can actively influence services as part of the community

At present, EcoHub offers fundamental IG B2B services, or essentials, to ensure straightforward communication and a secure data exchange between brokers and insurers. The aim is to harness the collective input of all those involved to rapidly advance the platform’s services, use and ongoing development. By creating an open community, and a marketplace for third-party services in the subsequent development phase, we are building a solid basis to achieve our mission.

Why EcoHub?

The digitalisation of the Swiss insurance market offers tremendous opportunities for everyone involved. But it doesn’t come without risk. A lack of resources and knowledge can slow down the process, and the investment risk is high for individual companies. EcoHub allows us to consolidate the industry’s strengths and to march together, as equal partners, towards a digital future.

Everyone can benefit:

  • EcoHub vereinfacht allen Marktteilnehmern den Zugang zu den neusten Technologien und Services.
  • Market players can take advantage of the opportunities of digitalisation in a way that’s right for them while saving design costs.
  • Having access to other companies’ digital services enables market players to focus more energy and time on their core business.
  • Market players offering their own digital services on EcoHub can gain access to a new source of revenue.

For insurers

Easily incorporate existing, field-tested digital services into your business while devoting your attention to what really matters (e.g. the development of new products and services, client care or marketing).

For brokers

EcoHub offers access to a wide range of digital services that are constantly being refined. These services can be integrated into your current processes quickly, easily and at a reasonable cost.

For software manufacturers

On EcoHub, you’ll become part of an effective digital ecosystem where you can develop your own solutions further and offer them to the market. EcoHub also facilitates access to your clients, allowing you to reach a wider audience through just one platform.
