Branch Disrupting the Insurance Market with Tyk API Management and GraphQL

Branch is reinventing the way people deal with their personal insurance. They are restoring insurance back to its original intent: a force for communal good. They have introduced a platform for bundled home & auto insurance, powered by community, where you get instant pricing and the most competitive rates at the push of a button without ever having to talk with anyone.

Being that they are a fast-growth startup, Branch has had the luxury of no technical debt, starting from the ground-up with the cream of the crop technology stack. A critical component of this stack is Tyk and its API lifecycle management and GraphQL capabilities. We invite you to join Joe Emison, CTO and Cofounder of Branch, as he discusses the many reasons why Tyk plays such an integral part in their top-notch tech stack and the next-generation platform they have built.

Before Tyk, Branch needed guidance on how to use GraphQL and was also in need of a system with full API lifecycle management and a developer portal. They needed a SaaS-based solution that was cost-effective and also included some key services already being leveraged in AWS. Enter Tyk, who checked all those boxes and more. Since enabling Tyk, more insurance partner affiliates have been opened up to the Branch platform and they have been able to offer better services to end-users, ultimately increasing overall revenue. Join us and learn more about the value Tyk has brought to Branch and the benefit that can be reaped by exploring what Tyk and GraphQL can do for your organization.
