Herald connects you to multiple carriers through a single API. Our Guides will teach you about our core concepts and walk you through everything needed to get quotes from carriers. You can also access our Quickstart Guide and API reference in our reference documentation, which requires a login. To get access to our API reference, please reach out to our team at email@example.com.
Authentication is sensitive! The guide to authenticating is in our API Reference (which requires login) for security reasons.
To set up with Herald, you need to authenticate your platform and add producers, a manual process which the Herald team will carry out. Each producer has to be granted access to individual products.
Once you're set up, you can create applications. Applications are specific to a product (or set of products) and the set of information a carrier requires to get a quote for that product. Once every question has been answered, you'll have a complete application that you can submit to carriers. A submission requires the completed application, and an associated producer that has access to those products. Making a submission sends the application to each carrier to create a quote, and provides you with an ID for each product. Finally, you can get a quote for each individual product.
