New Routes Towards the Evolution of the Industry
NTT DATA Insights
In a new life context where people worked from home, used their cars less, there were changes in their life events and there was greater use of digital technology. As a result, P&C insurers had to learn to connect differently with their customers. The activation of digital channels increased customer touch points, which gave greater prominence to the customer experience, where it is increasingly important to offer seamless multi-channel experiences delivered through an omni-channel platform.
As insurers move towards their future strategies, it is imperative to keep a close eye on the various macroeconomic trends, disruptions from the various players in the Insurtech ecosystem, technology and industry giants and understanding the advanced technologies that are currently crucial for the industry to overcome technological obsolescence.
Another important challenge to consider as the sector moves forward is the issue of being a data-driven company, being a critical element for real-time decision-making and actions. Connecting data with the most advanced technologies is key to enabling business success.
Insurers are already on the data journey, but it is not enough, it can still be considered to be in the early days of adoption, with areas for improvement to fully unlock its potential. Technologies such as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Business Intelligence and Analytics can help insurers in their operations, drive innovation and leverage Data & Analytics across the value chain.
NTT DATA can support insurers in the following use cases:
- Creating an ecosystem with retailers and dealers to offer experiences and not just products
- Beating infrastructure obsolescence, an important digitalization challenge for insurers
- Reducing claims leakage and optimizing claims processes
If insurers want to move forward on their digitalization path, it is necessary to contemplate the best technological scenarios that lead them to operate more effectively and have a positive impact on the service to the end customer.
P&C companies continue to move forward in their transformation where elements such as digitization, resilience and agility are of great importance moving forward. It will be key to consider how to connect and deliver unparalleled customer experiences, and in that strategy to better serve and understand their customers, they must not lose focus on becoming a data-driven company.
