Commercial insurers, like other carriers, are gearing up for some major technology-driven transformations. Here, we list three ways that insurers can ready their organizations for the changes to come.
- Commercial insurance carriers, by tapping vast amounts of external data now available, can eliminate the need to request and clarify application data and instead concentrate on spotting and leveraging the factors that make the greater difference for loss projections.
