A4Insurance: Underwriters’ decision-making automation that instantly increases efficiency
Analytics for everyone is what A4E stands for. A4Everyone was established to bring the benefits of big data and its analysis to a wider spectrum of businesses by creating affordable solutions that boost performance instantly. By creating Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AlaaS) and Automation as a Service (AaaS) solutions provided via a proprietary analytical platform, A4Everyone is delivering improved efficiency for clients within wholesale, retail, nonbank financial and insurance sectors.
A4Insurance is a solution by A4Everyone, able to determine if a health insurance contract offer is going to be profitable for the insurer. This way the solution makes significantly easier the work of the underwriters thus increase their capacity and productivity. Instead of performing complex and time-consuming calculations for every health insurance offer, the underwriters focus on just a fraction of the pile.
This way, one of its users, Bulstrad Life, a Vienna Insurance Group company, has already achieved 60% automation. This is the share of the insurance offers successfully processed without underwriters` additional working hours. Probably the biggest benefit is that 40% of the offers get a green light from the automation process and can directly go for sign-off. This is turning the sales team into overachiever due to the shortened sales cycle. All this is done by using proprietary AI and ML technology that analyze the past data constantly and automatically evaluates the new offers flow.
How it works
By utilizing existing data, A4Insurance relies on specific risk/profitability analytical model accounting health insurance offer details like but not limited to GWP, options included, coverage limitations, brokerage discount, administrative costs, number of insured people, distribution by age, sex, presence of family members, etc.
Applying the risk/profitability model to a particular health insurance offer is yielding a result that commonly falls into three categories:
- The green category: represents offers with high profitability assessment.
- The red category: flags offers in the opposite end with high potential of loses.
- The gray one: is where undefined offers are classified, which is meaning they need further work of underwriters.
The solution is provided as a service and is integrated within the insurance company ERP system.
