New Insurance market report from Timetric: "2020 Foresight Report: Operational Efficiency in Non-Life Claims"


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/17/2013 -- Globally, non-life insurance companies have been registering increasing payouts on account of claims. To deal with this situation, non-life insurers have been taking measures to make their claims management processes more efficient to reduce claim payouts and to curb claims-handling expenses. Non-life insurers are employing advanced technologies to improve their claims management processes. One of these technologies is integrated claims management systems (ICMSs). Non-life insurers have been implementing ICMSs to ensure that they can keep in contact with customers through the customers' preferred devices. ICMS are also being employed to gain a clearer view of claims data, which will help in identifying fraudulent activity. Non-life insurers have also been using predictive analytics to determine specific choices at the time of claims processing and to determine the long-term business potential of customers so that they can be provided with a better claims service.
