Integrated customer view from non-traditional sources

Insurance companies have access to customer data from myriad sources such as clickstreams, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, social media, and web logs. Views of customers are integrated into one holistic view for analytics. More accurately and automatically, insurance products can be recommended, cross-sell and up-sell opportunities can be identified, risk groups can be classified, and more.

Automated and targeted product recommendation

With a data-driven 360-degree view of customers, insurance companies can leverage AI to deduce the most relevant products for their customers. Given inputs such as age, gender, state, zip code, number of dependents, household size, and annual income, an AI platform can readily recommend burial coverage and term coverage in addition to general life insurance coverage. As a result, an agent selling insurance can more intelligently map product variables, such as term and face value, to the specific needs of a customer.

Automated classification of risk groups and even claims

Vehicle telematics devices track variables such as speed patterns, location, hard braking, environment and weather. Auto-insurance companies can classify drivers into various risk groups can be done by more accurately by leveraging machine learning with this data. The technology allows for a classification process that is automated and error-proof. Besides risk group classification, Deep Learning algorithms can be applied to images of vehicle damage, allowing for automated claim classification.
