8 Tech Essentials Digital Insurers Can’t Do Without

It’s no secret that insurers must transform their organizations to compete in the experience-driven digital economy, with its new and evolving ecosystems. What is less well-understood is the fundamental technology shift required to reach prospective customers with updated products leveraging new partners and data while building engagement with existing customers.

State of Play: Legacy Modernization Progress and Pitfalls for Benefits Insurers

Observations on legacy modernization trends for benefits insurers in Novarica’s new report

Since health care reform and the explosion of voluntary benefits, the group benefits market underwent dramatic disruption. That disruption hasn’t slowed since, and in many ways has only grown stronger. This has opened the door to a lot of opportunity that has yet to be taken advantage of.

APIs and the New Role of Benefits Enrollment

A very similar, consistent theme emerged in sessions throughout LIMRA’s recent Enrollment Tech conference. Insurance companies want to be at a place where all communication is API driven, especially when it comes to enrollment communication with enrollment vendors.

Five Business Capabilities Essential to Personalized Digital Experiences

You have heard a lot – likely an awful lot – about the ways advances in technology are impacting customer experience in the insurance industry: how they drive service beyond what customers expect by adapting with them as their lives change, by managing changes to their plans and policies with ease, and by offering a consistent experience across platforms and interactions.

It has brought into sharp relief the inextricable relationship between systems of record and systems of engagement and the need for platforms that foster that relationship. Creating just such a platform has been at the heart of EIS Group’s technology approach. For this reason, it is hugely gratifying to find ourselves recognized as a Visionary in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for P&C Core Platforms, North America”*, which is “an update of the ‘Magic Quadrant for Property and Casualty Insurance Policy Management Modules, North America’ published in January 2016."
