How to build a digital insurance company


Published on

Insurance organizations will have to transition to digital enterprises to remain competitive and profitable in this age of constant disruption. While the ultimate goal of insurance — providing financial stability and protection for customers at various stages of their lives — will always remain, how insurers achieve this goal will evolve constantly. Repositioning for this new normal must be looked upon as an opportunity and not as a threat, since digitizing the enterprise can help drive efficiencies and innovation, use data more effectively and create newer and better business models. Insurers have the opportunity to extend their portfolio into newer adjacent eco-systems —tying up with auto companies to use vehicle telematics to create new insurance products based on shared data is just one example.

Technology is a key enabler in the transition to a digital enterprise, and insurers must invest in a robust business and technology architecture with the relevant tools to create an agile and flexible organization. Insurers can use the digitization opportunity to deliver greater value to their customers and gain competitive advantage, engaging more intensely with existing customers and attracting newer customers with innovative products, improving both profitability and growth. Based on our experience in digital insurance enterprises transformations, we have developed this presentation to debunk some of the myths around such transformations, and delineate the USER approach developed to help companies metamorphose into digital insurers of the future.
