The FNO: Tips
- Claims transformation can be rooted in changing process, procedure, people, or technology
- Six sigma is a method for managing projects that looks at 2 things: the voice of the customer and the voice of the process
- Many public-serving insurance operations are understaffed and thus, unprepared for the bigger natural disasters
- Look EagleView, Guideware, and Xactware as solutions to shortening cycle times
- Studies show that around 60% of technology projects never get implemented due to fear of not being perfect
- Get to know your clients instead of using sales and marketing tactics
- In the future, the claims consumer will demand a multi-channel experience
- Insuretech will have to create the expert systems to bridge the gap between the newbies and the people who are retiring
