Factors Impacting Retention

'Retention' refers to the ability of a company to retain its customers over some specified period. High customer retention means customers of the product or business tend to return to, continue to buy or in some other way not defect to another product or business

Persistency’, during a period may be defined as the proportion of policies remaining in force at the end of the period out of the total policies in force at the beginning of the period. In other words, persistency is the percentage of business retained without lapsing or being surrendered. Low lapsation means high persistency and vice versa.

Persistency ratio measures the number of policies that continue in the books of the insurer by the end of the first year (13th month persistency), second year (25th month persistency), third year (37th month persistency), fourth year (49th month persistency) and fifth year (61st month persistency).

Below, we unearth some of the factors that impact persistency.

How Sentiment Analytics Can Drive Growth for Insurers

Insurers have a near-constant stream of unstructured data at their disposal that can be used to drive growth by improving policyholder retention and identifying cross-sell and upsell opportunities. One of the challenges for insurers is sorting through this mountain of unstructured data quickly to gain an accurate understanding of the sentiment of their customers in real time.

Cheers to Stream-based Data Integration...and to Never Losing a Byte!!

Enterprise applications belong to a vibrant ecosystem and consequently the data they generate is large and varied. Enterprises both benefit and suffer from this nature of application and data.Whenever a new application is to be deployed in an enterprise that integrates with the applications in the ecosystem, the precondition is an 'expansive data definition with referential value' on day 1 to start integration. Traditionally, this approach to data integration involves identifying a target data structure, and force fitting data from all sources into it. This is done to ensure a 'seamless' integration - never mind the loss of data considered irrelevant.
