Increase retention. Optimize claims. Cross sell.
Insurance Analytics Suite is a one stop analytical platform for Motor, Health, P&C, and Life insurance. The process automation & predictive intelligence product enables end-to-end solutions to benefit both Insurance companies and Intermediaries.

Insurers and Insurance intermediaries spend considerable time and money to acquire their customers, and then run large processes to retain them; however, retaining a profitable customer portfolio remains a challenge. According to the 2017 JD Power Insurance Shopping Study, the top 3 drivers for customers to switch are price sensitivity, channel preferences and service levels, and communication gaps. These affect renewals and further future sales in P&C, Health and Life Insurance.

Addressing this, Insurance Analytics Suite enables insurers to improve customer retention with risk insights, risk scores for retention and cross-sell based on industry-level Machine Learning models, each at the level of every customer and each policy. These scores enable actionable insights and data-driven decision making for high-impact results. The Suite also enables strategic interventions both within and without the insurance operations, leading to improvement of the processes.
