Insurance Operations Analytics
Reduce intellectual waste, enhance operational efficiency, optimise the customer experience and broker experience
Understand and address the drivers of waste, inefficiency, staff and customer churn.
Insurance firms are under increasing pressure to drive growth, increase operational efficiency, reduce intellectual waste and improve the experiences of customers and brokers.
Conversations are critical events in customer journeys and business processes - in emails, chats and case management systems. Every conversation contains valuable information about customer needs, products, services and processes.
However, most insurers lack both the infrastructure and capacity to analyse and automate their communications data at scale. Underwriters continue to spend an unsustainable amount of time servicing low-skill, low-value requests instead of creating new business for the firm. In a crowded and competitive market, this is leaving insurers exposed to more agile competitors as well as regulators.
