What Insurers Really Want

Reducing costs and underwriter defections became a prime focus for commercial carriers in the past year. Record high inflation and market volatility, mixed with talks of a recession have insurers on edge, tightening their belts and leaning in. Now more than ever, the need for resiliency, reliable processes, deeper insights and adaptability are pushing senior leaders to think beyond their current operations and into the future to meet their business objectives. And a lot of them are coming to the same conclusion. They recognize the need for digitalization, AI and the technologies that can help them operate more efficiently.  

Issues in Underwriting 

For many commercial lines operations, data collection is a time consuming and manual process. With so much internal and external information about current and potential insureds, the act of underwriting is hampered by the onerous process of manually gathering, reviewing, and analyzing information.  
 
Consider the many steps involved in collecting this data: pulling it from multiple sources including third party vendors and policy administration systems, and accessing various websites to supplement their decision-making process. The list also includes public, social, regulatory and subscription sites.
