NEXT Insurance, a leading digital insurtech company transforming small business insurance, today announced a state of the art upgrade to its pay-as-you-go offering that provides customers and partners with a seamless, simpler experience. The modernized solution, built in-house, was developed to solve the common pain points often experienced by traditional pay-as-you-go solutions. Now, small businesses conveniently have the option to bundle the purchase of multiple lines within the NEXT funnel. The offering uses Stripe Financial Connections to easily link a customer’s bank account making payments frictionless.
“Over 400,000 small businesses rely on NEXT, and we continue to put their needs first by investing in innovation that simplifies their experience,” said Eric Harnden, VP of Partnerships and Head of Agency at NEXT Insurance. “The technological upgrades to our pay-as-you-go offering put less of a strain on the policyholder by providing access to bundled coverage, simplified automatic payments linked to payroll for both direct customers and users across our ecosystem of partners. This seamless experience takes the burden off of the customer and allows them to focus on what matters the most: growing their business.”
This new solution demonstrates the power of digital, embedded insurance and the value it brings to small businesses through the financial ecosystems they regularly use. NEXT’s proprietary pay-as-you-go offering pulls data from over two hundred payroll partners and integrates directly into top providers like Intuit QuickBooks, Gusto and Square.
NEXT’s new technology also gives small business owners access to a variety of post-purchase benefits for efficient policy servicing, including the ability to easily add users to their accounts, improved policy management and payroll administration actions, certificate creation, and access to certificate and quote history.
NEXT was founded on the premise that digital and technological advancements could bring meaningful change to a centuries-old industry. This enhanced pay-as-you-go solution is just one example of the significant benefits that technology-first insurtechs can deliver to small businesses.
