    The key to providing what your customer wants is through understanding their needs and behaviors, uncovered through quality data. While incumbent insurers have vast, shallow data, insurtechs have narrow, deep data, and everyone in the industry is working towards using that data to develop the most personalized, high-touch customer experience possible, which comes with many obstacles and questions along the way. Join this session to hear answers to the following questions:

    • Who owns the data?
    • Is the data being sourced effectively?
    • Is it being analyzed and implemented effectively?
    • Is customer data being protected from going into the wrong hands?

    The most effective digital strategies begin with software solutions purpose-built to fit the entire enterprise. The process is made exponentially more efficient by outsourcing to insurance-specific providers (insurtechs) and leveraging APIs and cloud technology. Digital payments are the easiest and fastest way to begin going digital requiring the least operational adjustments while returning the highest customer experience returns. 


    This fireside chat will reveal the lessons learned and best practices surrounding the importance of having a digital roadmap, strong change management, and the benefits of implementing a comprehensive, insurance-specific, digital payments platform. The session will end with a discussion around innovation opportunities and how having strong ecosystem partnerships is critical as insurers navigate their digital transformation journey.
