But, ultimately, they all boil down to one overarching goal: to improve, or maintain, the best experience possible for their customers. With the insurance industry facing a number of challenges that goal can be hard – and costly – to achieve without some expert help.
These challenges include an increasing amount of customer enquiries, due to the current cost-of-living crisis and consequent affordability issues. This is coupled with the ongoing recruitment challenges and talent shortages, leaving many businesses without the resource needed to meet the demand. The cost-of-living crisis is also forcing many insurers to seriously consider introducing new, more flexible payment options, new affordability assessment processes, or even new products. And all of these require the resource to handle them, as well as the latest in AI, analytics and other digital tools.
