Hot off the presses!

Insurance agencies looking to modernize, generate more revenue and improve their client experience should consider a source of untapped potential at already at their fingertips: getting more out of their existing insurtech investment. There’s no extra charge for getting more value out of your software—the question is how. Brett Chenail of Vertafore looks at the best ways to leverage existing software.

“The best way to ensure you’re getting the most value out of your software is through communication and training among your employees. If employees know why or how best to use software, they will feel empowered to use it successfully, and adoption and satisfaction will run high.”

From omnichannel to digital transformation to AI, the InsurTalk podcast from Guidewire brings you expert insights from people who have driven innovation and turned possibilities into realities. Check out the first few episodes, featuring leaders from Aviva Italy, Economical Insurance, WSIB, and Farmers Insurance.


Global insurer Zurich North America is implementing Chisel AI’s Submission Intake and Policy Check solutions to automate its core construction underwriting and placement processes, ensure policy quality, and reduce the costs of policy rework and reissuance.


“We’re excited to work with Zurich to roll out Submission Intake and Policy Check to help them enhance underwriting efficiencies and the broker and policyholder experience,” said Jason McDermott, President and CEO, Chisel AI. “Our Submission Intake solution will allow Zurich to extract key data points from submissions in real-time to push to downstream systems, while Policy Check will automatically compare a policy against a binder to identify any errors and omissions more quickly, with a goal of reducing policy rework ratios and accelerating speed to issuance.”


Property telematics provider Roost has launched its new Security360 service, available as a white-labeled offering. The addition allows insurers to bundle home insurance with a branded telematics solution to deliver complete property protection to their policyholders.
“We are very excited to be launching the Roost Security360 service to our insurance partners to provide an engaging and proactive protection solution to their policyholders” said Roel Peeters, CEO and Co-Founder of Roost. “Bundling insurance-centric sensors with a comprehensive home security solution delivers a real win-win; policyholders get a security solution at the lowest possible cost, while carriers benefit from claims savings and positive customer engagement.”
