The insurance industry is experiencing a lot of change, driven by present developments in technology, such as the Internet of Things, Big Data and Analytics, Blockchain that dynamically and irrevocably alter the way it works. Let’s look at the industry’s top trends and discuss the different difficulties that drive the present InsurTech goals and see if we can call them all the most important.
Every industry has its leaders and its laggards and the insurance industry is not an exception to this. Deep pockets are helping some insurers to take advantage of digital technologies to change the way they function and to:
1. Offer fresh models and customized goods to satisfy evolving client expectations driven by internet retail sales models, • Partner with technology players to ensure that they keep up with evolving technology trends and take advantage of the Internet to adopt linked sensors or devices to collect loss prevention information and use better pricing techniques in prope.
2. Establish a cyber-security approach to safeguard the private and company information that they store and comply with privacy laws.
3. Establish a cyber-security approach to safeguard the private and company information that they store and comply with privacy laws.
4. Adopt cloud computing, AI and automation to enhance pace and flexibility and settle claims more quickly to provide better client satisfaction;
5. Use sophisticated analytics to obtain strategic ideas and proactively schedule future company opportunities and achieve competitive benefit.
6.Consider using blockchain technology to add “intelligent” agreements to their procedures and safe, decentralized information collection, processing and dissemination.
Are these strategic initiatives enough to allow businesses that embrace them to enjoy sector leadership and market management, and eventually achievement? What skills are required to prepare insurers to satisfy the industry’s requirements, in the expansion of channels or in the growth of business models as they evolve? How can insurers prepare for tomorrow’s requirements while meeting their expectations of today? The purpose of this article is to postulate that many insurers do not acknowledge the significance of managing claims to their company, even as they focus on many of the other strategic imperatives they face. Let’s clarify why we’d say that.
It is an open secret that customers are always happy with a good claims settlement experience, but tend to get very upset and start posting strong negative online feedback when their claim is delayed, disputed or rejected. Though claims satisfaction is an extremely critical component of an insurer’s overall customer relationship management challenge, it is only a work in progress for most at the current time. Instead, they need to pay attention to the customers and also focus inward, as they delve deep into the reasons for a customer’s dissatisfaction:
1. Insurers need to pay close attention to customer feedback and satisfaction levels with their claims filing process and settlement experience, especially when they are rejected.
2. Insurers have to capture customer feedback and factor it into the way their processes are functioning and question the clarity of their sales pitch itself, and see if the claim was fairly rejected.
3. They need to pay close attention to their reputation in this key area of customer satisfaction, which could impact their ability to retain a customer.
4. It must be remembered that dissatisfied customers never come back for additional coverage or another policy.
5. Even agents who find too many customers raising their voices against an insurer’s claim settlement process tend to move business away from them.
6. The seamlessness of customer experience needs to extend to claims handling, as claim filling becomes a smooth process.
7. Insurers can use technology to provide more options for filing a claim, including the uploading photos and videos, with increased speed and accuracy and reduced contact points with humans.
8. As algorithms detect fraudulent claims more easily, claims handling is improving in efficiency. Data driven claim prevention can help decrease costs and deliver value by predicting actual risk and reducing premiums.
Insurers could develop a adverse connection with a client by being too rigorous or overly suspicious in handling the sensitive balancing act between recognizing fraudulent claims and paying lawful claims. But that doesn’t imply that they can trust and leniently continue to approve every statement. Any injustice, whether true or presumed, could determine whether a policy is being renewed again, or whether our online reputation is suffering, or whether the insurer might face a legal conflict in a court. Even as insurers work hard to identify the technologies they need to expand their channels of distribution and ensure that they create optimized customer travel; they can not lose sight of the significance of removing fraudulent allegations from their priority list. That is why we believe that the management of claims could challenge InsurTech’s insurance industry priorities. What are you thinking? Please write in your ideas and share them.
