Insurance is a complicated world for new business owners to understand. It covers an astonishing range of scenarios – including even spilling coffee on your clients’ laptops – and it can be overwhelming to know just which cover you need for your firm, and which might be a waste of time and financial resources.

That’s where Tapoly comes in. Co-founders Janthana Kaenprakhamroy and Sam Hopkins have built this end-to-end Software as a Service solution to connect insurers with new and existing distribution partners, increasing data sharing, communication and operational efficiency – particularly for SME customers, who typically need more support in this area.

In today’s freelance and side hustle world, Tapoly’s AI-driven pricing utilises specific data to generate fairer and more accurate pricing - protecting consumer cash flow and making sure every user receives fairer remuneration.

AI and Machine Learning techniques work within the platform to accurately assess risk and enable automation, helping customers find the right insurance cover for their business quickly, easily, and most importantly, legibly.

Plus, unlike other Insurtech companies, Tapoly is also tapping into the gig economy sector, which is often neglected by insurance providers for being too risky.

Tapoly is also tapping into the gig economy sector, which is often neglected by insurance providers for being too risky.

This puts it at a huge advantage going into the more flexible, post-pandemic working world – a fact which was no doubt a driving force behind the firm’s recent partnership with Peach Pi. Through the alliance, they have launched a new treatment risk insurance product that utilises Tapoly’s SaaS platform to give community or volunteer health professionals cover tailored to their specific roles.

There’s no need for insurance for Tapoly’s future – we think the forecast looks good, and can’t wait to see what they do next.
