Matthew Josefowicz, Partner and Managing Director at Novarica:


“With the proliferation of new channels, products, and data sources, insurers cannot afford to risk their claims operations on outdated, inflexible technology.  Insurers with highly automated, flexible claims operations are not only gaining efficiency, but improving bottom-line results.  Insurers whose operations are held back by inadequate technology are not going to be able to compete effectively.”


Leo Sugg, Insurance Business Leader for Pegasystems:


“Today, more than ever, property and casualty insurers need advanced, flexible technology that they can depend on to drive business value and customer satisfaction across all their operations.  They need a market-proven claims solution that lowers claims service costs and reduces complexities.  Pega’s claims solution drives business benefits at many of the world’s largest insurers, and these latest enhancements enable insurers to achieve predictable business outcomes.”
