Technology is Key to Surviving in the Modern Insurance Market

Digital is the key player in this time of the Covid-19 pandemic. Insurance companies are embracing digital channels now more than ever to reach out and connect with current and prospective customers. Covid-19 has changed the public’s outlook on insurance. Its value is perceived to be more critical as folks are considering the consequences of not being covered. Because of this, it’s essential now more than ever to provide consumers the ability to research products online without the assistance of agents, and at the convenience of their own home. Insurance companies must provide the tools and means to analyze various insurance products, provide price transparency, and a clean digital environment that is easy to navigate and execute.

Understanding Customer Behavior

It’s a given that AI and ML technologies provide for an efficient online experience. It’s the customer experience that needs to be delivered to put the consumer in charge. Here are some characteristics that are required when providing a meaningful online experience:

Self-Service Space

Self-service is becoming more and more important for an insurance company’s success. Traditional back-office jobs are becoming more streamlined with the help of Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

Conclusion – The Spiderman Theory

The Spiderman story taught me that 99% of people who are bitten by a spider are disabled or die but that 1% who can bear the poison become stronger. As we come out of the crisis, the insurance sector could look fundamentally different: it shall be more agile, secure, connected, and digitally enabled. Insurers have to stay the course and keep pace with the transformations that make them winners, while those who stick to traditional ways may lose market appeal.

Insurance Agents - Will They Disrupt or Perish?

The past two decades of the insurance industry has seen a lot of experimentation of distribution models: Max Life starting with a multi-level marketing model, Aviva trying to build both agency and bancassurance channels simultaneously, Canara HSBC starting with only bancassurance model and experimented with an agency in between, Pramerica Life & HDFC Life replicated agency sales channels to target a cluster of consumers formed, basis occupation or usage of common services.

Powering Insurance Agents with AI

In the post-CoVID-19 era, a tremendous amount of focus, time, and energy has been invested in understanding the customer or policyholder based on the insurer's proprietary data and the data collected by many other research agencies. The customer is deeply analyzed and offered customized or personalization, as we call, solutions and offerings. However, the investment made by insurers has only been focused on 5% of the number of policies sold or approximately 11 Lacs policyholders, that are sold by direct sales, web aggregators, and online sales. This begs the question, why are insurers only investing in distribution channels that represent 5% of the number of policies sold?

Insights That Power Insurance

While the world around us is changing so rapidly, adapting to this change is no longer an option but a necessity to survive. The Indian Insurance Industry, too, as a whole, has proven its resilience in the current dynamic context but nevertheless continues to face various challenges to be dealt with as it navigates through this evolving landscape. As innovators, we at Aureus Analytics felt the urge to aid these giant strides with a little insight from the who's who of the industry.
