Life-insurers, like any other segment of the InsurTech sector, have to face the ever-growing impact of technological evolution in the field.
These rapid advancements in technology have not only shaped customer expectations, but have also opened new avenues for enhanced communications that provide consumers with an abundance of information
Given today’s competitive market, having an effective customer communications strategy is imperative for life insurers. But what does that mean? And how can it benefit the market?
According to Smart Communications, the ability to have effective customer communications directly correlates with an improved policy management system and will allow life-insurers to manage claims more efficiently.
Overall, it enhances customer satisfaction, reduces errors, and streamlines the overall process when a consumer has a coverage question, makes policy changes, or files a claim.
Ways in which life-insurers can deliver this include; clearly communicating policy terms, having a transparent claims procedure, and also having personalised interactions with the consumer.
However, current legacy systems that most companies now have in place do not have the benefits over the current technological trends, such as cloud-based CCM software.
These services offer numerous benefits over traditional legacy systems or the absence of one entirely, including, increased agility, omnichannel capabilities, and cost savings and ROI.
To delve deeper, every touchpoint in the life insurance journey matters, and arguably, these more archaic, less-streamlined systems, limit life-insurers in terms of how efficiently and flexibily they can adapt to the needs of their consumer.
As technology and customer expectations evolve, insurers should also refine their processes and technological capabilities.
The ability to leverage data analytics to better understand your customers’ needs, or simply ensuring that communications are sent to the users’ preferred channel every time offer these InsurTech’s the chance to adapt and leave their competition behind.
For an industry aimed at helping its customers with transitions, life insurance companies need to be at the top of their game in regard to adaptation. Luckily, leading CCM software can help make lighter work of becoming an agile, customer-centric organisation.
