We had a great time at #BostonFinTechWeek2019 this month. We would like to again thank our panelists for a spirited session! For those who weren't able to join us in person, we wanted to offer a few snippets of our panel in action discussing the core challenge of harnessing client data across the end-to-end insurance value chain.

The panel hit on a number of topics focused on why it is so important to get your data's house in order before you try to solve other downstream client issues.

4 Reasons Data-Driven Agencies Outperform Their Peers

By John Carione on Jun 26, 2019 8:38:07 AM

Digital Transformation happens most naturally when it’s driven by insurance organizations who deeply understand their clients behavior and needs at each point along the end to end policyholder value chain. Understanding customer context and delivering optimal quotes and offers at the right time requires real time analytics on all the relevant placement and exposure data. The core issue is that this data has long been hard to aggregate, as it's typically stored in disparate legacy applications, static ACORD forms, PDFs/Excel, and even .csv files.
