Speed to market is a top priority for virtually every insurance company today, and for good reason. In order to compete – both against traditional vendors as well as aggressive new market entrants – insurers need to do all they can to quickly meet customers’ expectations with precisely the right offer. If they can’t, customers are likely to partner with other insurers who can.
It’s especially important in times like this where rising inflation makes consumers even more price-conscious and requires insurers to make sure rating and pricing models are as effective as possible in meeting customers’ new expectations. As more and more vendors clamor to win new business, insurers need to do all they can to price the most compelling offer and get it to market faster than the competition.
Speed to market is also an extremely effective way to achieve many of insurers’ most critical business goals. For example, providing fast product offers and services is a proven way to attract consumers, win new business, and retain a larger segment of more profitable customers.
The element of speed also represents a changing mindset in the industry. In the recent past, this concept may have seemed to be revolutionary or even futuristic. In reality, the ability to quickly present customers with much more compelling offers is now true table stakes – a must-have for any insurer to gain a valuable head start over competitors who may still be a step behind.
Real-Time Insurance Solutions: The Foundation for Faster Time to Market
Yet how to capitalize on this vision – how to truly accelerate speed to market – isn’t always clear. Many obstacles may stand in an insurer’s pursuit of this goal, especially outdated technology, siloed processes, inefficient internal workflows, and data-related limitations.
Today, solutions from market innovators such as Earnix are delivering disruptive new technologies that are proven in their ability to revolutionize legacy processes, deliver highly personalized, highly engaging customer experiences, and accelerate insurers’ speed to market with better products and services.
All of this enables any insurer to gather, analyze, and act on real consumer risk and market performance – all in real time.
Real-Time Insurance Solutions Deliver Real-World Results
To best understand the value and results real-time insurance solutions can provide, let’s examine how one Earnix customer achieved several significant benefits.
Earnix recently partnered with an innovative new insurance start-up that delivers insurance for Uber and Lyft drivers in the UK, the Netherlands, and the United States.
This company approached Earnix for a better rating and pricing software solution that could accelerate vital internal processes, improve quoting to win new business, and help support its aggressive growth model.
This start-up immediately saw the value in Earnix's dynamic, composable, and intelligent solutions especially in how they could use it to run their “what-if” simulations. Then, once the Earnix solution was live, the start-up quickly started using it to improve key processes in many different parts of the business.
Earnix gave them exactly the solution they needed. Now, if they need to change rates, they can do it significantly faster using the Earnix solution. Internal teams can also run many different simulations to see exactly what will happen if they change something in the rating model and how it will affect the rating, the price, market demand and other variables.
The start-up has also enjoyed lightning-fast response times and low latency. This has helped the company produce new rates and prices in near real time, a technological advantage that accelerated its speed to market time to essentially zero. This has enabled the start up to develop much more targeted insurance offerings and deploy them extremely quickly to stay a step ahead of the competition.
