sum.cumo reinforces its presence in Switzerland

sum.cumo is continuing to strengthen its position and product range in the region of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The company has been implementing projects in Switzerland since 2012, and now it intends to become even more active there. The national manager will be Peter (Dähler), a longstanding partner and the founder of the Dextra legal expenses insurance agency.

Successful projects implemented in Switzerland since 2012

Dextra and sum.cumo began revolutionizing the Swiss insurance market as early as 2012. Working closely together as partners, they built a future-facing, digital insurance agency entirely from scratch. Dextra's digital legal expenses and automotive insurance policies were created through the use of modern technologies and innovative new perspectives and methods. With the company's accumulated experience in the Swiss market and its extensive range of services and products, insurers can rely on the solutions of sum.cumo for internet-enabled sales and customer service of modern insurance systems and services.

Peter and sum.cumo

As of October 1, 2019, Peter now leads sum.cumo's Swiss branch, based in Zurich, as the country's national manager. Peter and our CEO Björn (Freter) have known each other for many years. Now Peter's task in Switzerland is to assemble a sum.cumo team there, who are to actively support their colleagues in Hamburg and Düsseldorf. The establishment of this third location will also provide closer proximity to our customers in the region and thus strengthen our market presence.

An eye to the future

"Customer-focused solutions are built on the latest technologies by digital specialists from the consulting, UX design, front end and back end development, and marketing departments. This shows the holistic approach that we here at sum.cumo pursue in order to successfully bring projects to fruition, from the first idea all the way to the marketing strategy," explained Björn. "Our goal in Switzerland is to work together with customers to push the limits by developing and implementing ideas for innovative products.

In 2011, he established a company for process financing. In 2012, in association with sum.cumo, Peter founded the company Dextra in Zurich, Switzerland. In 2016, Dextra's legal protection insurance policies were supplemented with automotive insurance. After suffering a stroke in January of 2018, Peter was fortunate to make a good recovery.
