Leading players in the corporate insurance industry are increasingly focusing on improving top-line sales while bolstering their bottom-line profitability. However, there are numerous challenges standing in the way of the corporate insurance firms. Notably, not all of these challenges are within the industry’s control such as catastrophe losses and rising interest rates. But what is well within their authority is how effectively the insurers adapt to the changing circumstances both operationally and strategically, to differentiate themselves in the market.
There is a rise in customer expectations and disruptions that are bringing about several changes to the overall market scenario. Here are a few factors that are expected to bring about significant transformations in the corporate insurance sector over the next few years:
- Technological advancements: Technology permeates every aspect of the insurance process, from online purchases to filing claims and communicating with insureds, to the products and services insurers provide. With rapid technological advancements and improvements in mobile technology, it has become easier for insurers and their insureds to communicate; thus, bringing significant changes to the customer service dynamics. The use of technology also helps insurers in streamlining their processes and offer seamless services to its customers. Also, through the use of IoT and other features like connected homes, connected phones, and connected devices, it becomes evident that there is a plethora of information which should be harnessed, sorted, and used by insurers. This helps in providing key metrics and demographics, which assists in the development of new products and services.
- Data security: Since there is no limit to the extent of data that can be captured via social media, telematics, the internet, and other such sources, the corporate insurance firms face significant challenges in protecting the captured data. However, the major concern is that the use of the collected data could infringe on civil liberties and personal privacy. Moreover, thought the data offers insights on improving customer services levels, the main advantage lies in the insurance firm’s ability to use the information and develop products and services that suit the needs of its customers.
