Technology, technology, technology.

It seems that everywhere you turn—someone in the insurance industry is talking about the power of technology. But at the end of the day—a claim is a loss, and losses are emotional things.

And no matter how you look at it—people are better at handling at emotions than robot.

That’s why on today’s episode of FNO: InsureTech, we are gathering for a roundtable discussion at the PLRB conference.

The featured speakers are:

  • Dan Moore, QBE North America
  • Scott Sprague, Westfield Insurance
  • Pat Sinnard, Great American Insurance
  • Jill Thomas, National General Insurance
  • John Hall, Worley/ASI
  • Mick Zondory, Kemper Preferred
  • Bo Helms, Shelter insurance
  • Matt D. Fatheree, Fourseventy Claims

Tune in to this episode to hear the group’s insights as they span from managing employee expectations to the future of insurance technology.

The FNO: Tips

  • Today, now more than ever, recruiting college graduates to the insurance
  • Technology’s best fit in the claims process is getting the claim into the system
  • In addition to getting data faster, insuretech technologies are engaging the customer in never-before-seen ways
  • Accuracy of information is most important in the FNOL part of the process
  • Taking accurate photographs of damage is not an intuitive process
  • Lenders are much more risk-averse than the consumer
  • It’s usually not the first person to invent the technology that fits it into the market perfectly
  • Hover’s initial contracts were with the military, then pivoted to insurance
  • Technology doesn’t make money until there’s standardization
