June 2019 Tech Talk for Insurers

A Message from Toni Smith, Senior Manager for Insurance

Toni Smith, Senior Manager for Insurance

We had a fantastic time at Velocity last month, our annual user conference, with more than 100 participants. Our insurance sessions focused on the best ways to use technology to streamline the entire insurance lifecycle.

  • We looked at content technology solutions that complement modern or legacy core technologies to streamline communication and compliance, and deliver process efficiency for new business, underwriting, maintenance, claims and customer service.
  • We heard about ways to automate and manage effective, personal and compliant customer communications across multiple channels – a must for insurers.

Industry News

We were eager to read Graham Proud’s recent article in InsuranceThoughtLeadership.com titled How Insurers are Innovating Right Now. He claims that “[c]onnected insurance is the biggest potential for transformation that insurance has witnessed since the invention of the computer.” And he’s right.

Insurers find themselves in the make-or-break position to innovate or die. Decreasing profit margins, increasing customer expectations for an “Amazon-like” experience and greater competition all feed into the push to modernize and streamline operations.

The article reports results from a recent survey of insurance executives. The survey indicates that 50% of surveyed executives believe that CEOs and heads of strategy must take the lead in connected product development. Moreover, 54% said that leveraging the expertise of external technology partners has been of greater value than relying solely on in-house talent.
