Better insurance through IoT

Addressing critical insurance challenges through IoT

headline-widget

Insurance carriers today are already leveraging the power of IoT to drive improvements in core lines of business. Insurers are augmenting their mature auto telematics programs with forays into IoT for home, health, and workers' compensation insurance. Across all business lines, IoT can help insurers improve their risk management, mitigate claims, improve claim management, and engage customers more effectively.

Improved risk assessment

IoT data enables a step-change improvement in risk assessment over traditional factors. By combining the IoT data and advanced analytical capabilities provided by the platform with traditional factors and claims data, insurers can create new risk assessment models that are far more predictive than traditional models.

Enhanced claims management

Insurance IoT is critical for improving claims outcomes. Near-real-time data processing enables claims event detection and proactive first notice of loss while advanced analytics allow for event reconstruction and fraud prevention. IoT data changes the claims paradigm, drives down costs, and improves customer satisfaction.

Better customer engagement

IoT data provides unprecedented insight into consumer behaviors. With the right tools, insurers can leverage these insights to offer truly individualized products that stand out in the market. Powerful, behavior-based engagement tools allow insurers to create personalized interactions that lead to higher retention.

The complexity of increasingly connected insurance

headline-widget

Each new connected insurance product and connected line of business adds new sensors, new applications, and new processes that carriers need to support. Outsourced IoT point solutions can add additional complexity and missed value as critical steps in the process such as data collection, analytics, and logistics are managed by the vendor.

The challenges of a business-line approach to connected insurance


Fragmented customer data

Point solutions and business-line specific IoT strategy leads to data silos both within lines of business and between lines of business, minimizing cross-vertical benefits.

Higher IT costs


Point solutions lead to the creation of additional teams to support connected insurance products within lines of business, leading to missed process and logistics efficiencies.

Siloed insurance IoT strategy

Line of business-level connected insurance strategy restricts opportunities for cross-business line pricing, claims management, and customer engagement.

Process & logistics inefficiencies

Each IoT source must be integrated into core systems as it is selected, leading to increased integration costs and increasing the cost of vendor switching.

Restricted innovation


Data, product strategy, and process silos lock IoT data into individual lines of business, restricting cross-business line pricing, claims, and customer engagement innovations.
