Assurant contracts with startup for an innovation project it pitched at SwitchPitch NYC
SwitchPitch New York presenter Assurant, “the premier provider of specialized insurance products and related services in North America and select worldwide markets,” has contracted with New York City startup codelitt. Both participated in our SwitchPitch New York event, and connected post event via our online platform.
The two will be working together to meet Assurant’s goal to build a digital warranty platform. This platform will act as a single place to store and track all of a person’s purchases and associated warranties. Consumers can take a picture of their receipt (if purchased in retail store) or forward their purchase confirmation (if purchased online) to the interface and have that information in an organized, safe place. They can then be informed of when their warranty will expire, get any updates from the manufacturer, or choose to purchase additional protection for their products.
This is one of three projects Assurant presented at our SwitchPitch New York event. Watch them present their three projects below, live from SwitchPitch, at the NYU Skirball Center.
You can view all of the presentations from SwitchPitch New York on our website.
Codelitt, the startup they’ve contracted for this project, works with clients to define, conceptualize, prototype, and create new technology and emerging media products. The products range from web and mobile applications, to custom operating systems, to integration of technology platforms.
We are very excited to see the innovative solutions codelitt will provide for Assurant and are enormously happy we were able to help facilitate this partnership.
