  • Use New Vehicle Technology to Reduce Risk & Improve Pricing in Underwriting Apr 1 2021 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Raja Chakravorti (Root Insurance Company) Jason Verlen (CCC) Marty Ellingsworth (Celent)
    The increasing adoption of new vehicle technology has made calculating the value of a vehicle more difficult. Paradoxically, much of the technology that is driving the industry forward, from increased safety features to access to valuable driving data, is adding a new level of complexity to underwriting.

    Today, many carriers are unaware of the specific costs new advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) features have on vehicles, or how leveraging individualized driving behavior data can inform decision-making. With the speed of innovation increasing all the time, how can underwriters keep up? Find out in this upcoming webinar…

    You’ll hear from:

    - Raja Chakravorti, General Manager, Root Enterprise, Root Insurance Company
    - Jason Verlen, Senior Vice President of Product Management, CCC
    - Marty Ellingsworth, Industry Analyst, Celent

    - Get actionable data points from connected vehicles. Use near-real time insights, such as driving behaviours and patterns, to attract and retain highest performing segments of business and more accurately reflect the price-to-risk relationship.
    - Hear how to use ADAS to improve pricing. Understand how ADAS features, used by policyholders, can lead to a decline in accident frequency and severity, more accurate risk assessment and more refined pricing models.
    - Address the demand for digital. Embrace an artificial intelligence-centred approach to increase the efficiency of existing processes and gain valuable insights, such as potential pre-existing damage, to help reduce risk at the point of quote.
    - Overcome a lack of data: Reconcile the growth in vehicle safety features with a lack of data and a lack of standards and find out how insurers can validate the performance of safety technology.

    Accurate and efficient underwriting is the cornerstone of profitable growth for insurers. To drive productivity, AI is key, but unfortunately not all data is structured and ready to use. In fact, 80% of enterprise data is unstructured, in the form of emails, text documents, legal reports, voice recordings, videos, social media.

    In this 1 hour free webinar you will:

    - Examine key AI use cases, like image and voice recognition, robotics, predictive analytics and NLU, to extract data, check and modify policies and triage submissions - especially for commercial lines where the risk is higher, and the conditions are unique
    - Reduce customer friction through technologies, like Natural Language Understanding, chatbots and virtual assistants, that allow you to tap into unstructured data
    - Enhance renewals and accurately evaluate your exposure by using AI to streamline manual, slow and error-prone processes and analyse non-standard policies
    - Transform submission triaging and processing through technology, like OCR and NLU, to drive efficiency and free up underwriters’ time for high-value tasks
    - Use AI to align underwriting with your risk appetite and make better decisions: Classify and code standardised, historical risk data to decide what’s viable
