Quotes and Commentary:
Matthew Josefowicz, Partner and Managing Director, Novarica
“Life Insurance claims is an area that's been under-invested in over the past decade as life insurers have focused on other needs. However, the emergence of more complex life products with multiple living benefits and riders means the claims process is becoming more of a focus of customer experience, with a bigger potential impact on customer retention. This increased need combined with the emergence of new solutions that leverage modern information technology capabilities and principles creates a new impetus for life insurers to revisit their strategies in this area.”
Leo Sugg, Insurance Business Leader, Pegasystems
“Though it’s a core process for life insurers, the area of Life Claims has historically been underserved by technology. Yet the changing demographics and increasing focus on service and retention of assets has prompted many insurers to take a closer look at making strategic investments in improving operational efficiency. These improvements will help life insurers differentiate themselves, while also cutting costs, addressing compliance, and streamlining operations.”
