AXA Singapore

Today’s positive revenue news follows Kyckr announcing yesterday that insurance company AXA Singapore would be it adopting its application-programming interface.

According to Kyckr, collection of information to underwrite commercial insurance is currently carried out manually and can be “costly” and “time consuming”.

Kyckr explained its application-programming interface can reduce the turnaround time to between one and three days.

This contract alone is expected to generate S$380,000 (A$400,000) in revenue for Kyckr.
