The insurance evolution: How delegated authority relies on fast data exchange

There’s been a noteworthy shift within the insurance sector. The catalyst for this shift? The ever-growing importance and sheer volume of data.

distriBind, which is leveraging machine learning and automation to help insurers move away from spreadsheets, has released a new white paper exploring why data visibility and speed is crucial for data exchange.

Living in the data-driven era means that industries, including insurance, must evolve to keep up. With the amount of data that the insurance industry handles expanding daily, it’s evident that there is an urgent need for innovations in data management. Especially critical are the visibility of data and the speed of its exchange, especially when collaborating with insurers and managing general agents (MGAs). For the sustained success of partnerships and efficient operations, the industry must prioritise these two components.

The power of delegated authority

The notion of delegated authority is gradually taking root in the insurance world, signalling a move towards more streamlined operations. This change represents a significant departure from traditional methods. Yet, it’s a positive evolution, with the industry becoming more adaptive and welcoming of operational enhancements. The principle behind delegated authority is simple yet powerful: there is strength in collaboration. By forming alliances between insurers, intermediaries like agents, brokers, and MGAs, the collective strength and potential of these working relationships can be fully harnessed.

Data at the core of modern insurance

Despite the commendable strides in adopting the delegated authority framework, a pivotal element remains essential for its success: robust data visibility and swift data exchanges. Insurance firms have, in many ways, morphed into data-centric entities. Their primary competence lies in gathering, deciphering, and forecasting data patterns. Hence, the precision and accessibility of this data are paramount. Given the enhanced focus on data within the context of delegated authority, the industry is now tasked with considering how best to prioritise data. Additionally, it should contemplate what further enhancements can be instituted to guarantee the provision of high-calibre, readily available data.
