Last month, Carrier Management said that some insurers expect to spend more on insurance technology in 2017. But at 37 percent, they're in the minority. They're also running below a multi-industry average. While 45 percent of other businesses plan to spend more on IT this year,…Full Story

Auto insurers take note: driving is up, and safety is down. The two trends go hand in hand: you can't get in a crash if you're not on the road to begin with. But as people log more miles, the opportunity for collisions increases too. And boy, have people been logging more miles.
If you thought the love of the open road was going the way of the dinosaur, think again. Not to say the world isn't changing, and with ride-sharing services all set to redefine America's relationship to the automobile, it's not unreasonable to suppose that someday, quite soon in…Full Story
The National Transportation Safety Board has a wish list, and self-braking cars are right at the top. Okay, so they don't call it a wish list. They call it a most wanted list – conjuring fugitives rather than fairies – but the essence is the same. If manufacturers and…Full Story

There's a new player in the insurance game, and its name is data. Not that data is new to the scene, of course: it underpins just about every business function in the industry: underwriting, marketing, product development, pricing, strategy, financial analysis.

The FedNat Insured Web is a great tool for our insureds!
They like having a centralized location to view policy info, make payments, upload policy documents, and elect to become paperless to receive a discount.
The insureds also can file a First Notice of Loss for a claim and access exiting claim info. Silvervine recently enhanced the site which allows insureds to upload policy documents directly to their policy. The uploaded docs go directly into our workflows and save a lot of manual effort on our part.
From my visits with agents, the agents appreciate the app for the amount of time saved on having to download and attach photos directly to the policy.
The app can also reduce the amount of staff required for a busy office to fulfill underwriting requests for photos.
When training agents they are amazed at how quickly the photos attach directly to the policy. After taking photos using the app and before they make it back to their desk, the photo is already attached to the policy. They also like the ability to attach additional photos for pre-existing damage.
Customer Service is seeing an improvement with retention as the text message definitely triggers phone calls from insureds to make payments.
The insureds love the fact that we notify them on their phones because they state that sometimes they don’t receive their mail for various reasons.
The insureds are paying more attention to the texts then to their actual mail. We try to set all of our customers up on that option if we notice that they are not currently enrolled, as it builds great customer relations as well as retention.
As a company we have adopted the use of Policy Scan for all our policies, and our agents have adopted the use of the app as well.
Not only is it easy to use, there is also no more worrying about losing photos, having to store photos or photos being attached to the wrong policy.
With Policy Scan we have increased efficiency in our workflow and reduced our exposure on the risk.
