The FNO: Tips

  • Claims transformation can be rooted in changing process, procedure, people, or technology
  • Six sigma is a method for managing projects that looks at 2 things: the voice of the customer and the voice of the process
  • Many public-serving insurance operations are understaffed and thus, unprepared for the bigger natural disasters
  • Look EagleView, Guideware, and Xactware as solutions to shortening cycle times
  • Studies show that around 60% of technology projects never get implemented due to fear of not being perfect
  • Get to know your clients instead of using sales and marketing tactics
  • In the future, the claims consumer will demand a multi-channel experience
  • Insuretech will have to create the expert systems to bridge the gap between the newbies and the people who are retiring
