Duuo by Co-operators launches first event insurance API partnership with facility booking platform, Univerus Sport & Recreation

TORONTO — Today, Duuo by Co-operators announced the launch of their first event insurance API integration with booking software platform, Univerus Sport & Recreation a division of Univerus Inc.  This partnership will provide Canadians with the opportunity to book recreational facilities and secure event insurance coverage all within the Univerus Rec platform.

 The benefits of this integration also extend to facilities utilizing the Univerus Rec platform. They’ll automatically be included as an additional insured on purchased policies, ensuring they immediately receive confirmation of insurance when their facility gets booked. 

 Now officially available as an add-on service for all Univerus Rec platform clients, this partnership leverages over 75 years of insurance expertise from Co-operators, along with best-in-class technology that enhances how users experience the Univerus’ platform. 

 Sunni Shannon, Partner Success Manager at Duuo by Co-operators is thrilled to get this partnership up and running. “After lots of collaboration with Univerus, it’s incredibly exciting to see our APIs officially integrated within their platform. Considering event insurance was a prominent pain point for both clients and facilities, I’m incredibly proud that we can now provide reliable protection to Canadians through one seamless experience.” 

Jeff Downie, EVP at Univerus Sport & Recreation shares, “With the help of Duuo’s API technology, we’re thrilled to provide this enhanced experience to Canadians who utilize our rental booking software,” Adding, “One of my favourite aspects about this new integration, and the feedback we’ve heard most from our clients, is that a facility is automatically notified when someone purchases or cancels a policy on our platform, making it much easier to manage insurance information.”

Duuo by Co-operators is ready to partner with platforms across Canada looking to offer their customers additional value through embedded insurance. For more information, visit partnerships.duuo.ca.
