Digitalization & Process Management – The Power of Process-Led Design

 

Brandon’s organization, a large, national commercial and specialty insurer was seeking to grow revenue through rapid business acquisition and faster go-to-market strategy, improve underwriting efficiency & risk quality using state of the art technology platforms, improve underwriter and broker interaction through online portal technology, and reduce cost through process automation.

 

His organization acknowledged that the time spent on core underwriting, broker interfacing, and operations interaction is very high, the end to end UW lifecycle is manually intensive and risk prone, and opportunities exist to streamline IT and analytics. As part of the journey the insurer partnered with a new software as a service (SaaS) company to deploy their insurance fulfillment engine that provides full QBI (Quote, Bind, Issue) automation through an improved customer-focused sales experience which simplifies carrier operations and integration.

 

Brandon will present how his organization utilized a process repository, applied process reference models, and used simulation to map the current and future state underwriting operations – and in the process identified several pain points, opportunities to improve efficiencies, and iterated their ultimate vision for the technology based on the findings.
