One of InsurTech Ohio's Premier Partners, Branch, has announced a new partnership with SimpliSafe, a home security system. Here's what they have to offer to home owners:
"Branch, the startup that pioneered instantly-bundled home and auto insurance, today announced a partnership with SimpliSafe, maker of award-winning security systems, to offer its members significant discounts on their home insurance.
Through this partnership, Branch members can receive meaningful discounts up to 15.5% on their home insurance by protecting their home with a professionally monitored SimpliSafe system1, which can help prevent major hazards, such as theft, fire and water damage. Additionally, Branch is giving new members a free 7-piece home security system from SimpliSafe and a complimentary month of SimpliSafe’s most comprehensive professional security monitoring.
'The insurance industry is broken, and consumers overpay as a result. At Branch, our mission is to make insurance more affordable and one of the ways we do this is through our innovative connected home discounts,' shared Steve Lekas, Cofounder and CEO of Branch. 'There is ample data to support how professionally monitored home security drastically reduces claims for our members, so we’re eager to pass meaningful savings along to those who choose to protect their homes with an industry-leading provider like SimpliSafe.'
Branch and SimpliSafe share the belief that home protection should be both accessible and affordable. The complimentary SimpliSafe hardware and professional monitoring coupled with the substantial policy savings generated through the Branch connected home discount will make this partnership a clear win for Branch members. Additionally, in the coming weeks, homeowners who already use SimpliSafe to protect their homes may be eligible for deep discounts on home and auto insurance when they purchase a new policy through Branch’s frictionless and instant buying experience.
'At SimpliSafe, we remain singularly focused on making home the safest place on earth,' said Matt Wolf, Head of Partnerships at SimpliSafe. 'We’ve found a real opportunity to deliver on that mission by teaming up with leading insurers, like Branch, to offer homeowners proactive protection. We’re excited to work with Branch to deliver tremendous value to homeowners and build the future of comprehensive protection.'
