The insurance industry uses a disparate landscape of disconnected systems to support different processes where data flow is mired with manual workarounds.  There are business critical data dependencies between most departments and stakeholders which involve repetitive tasks such as re-keying and managing spreadsheets. Much of which can be automated to improve the accessibility and reliability of data and boost productivity. Giving users more time to concentrate on making decisions and taking action.

Technology is also far more efficient in leaving an audit trail of specific changes made and who initiated them, increasing transparency and traceability to support regulatory demands. It can also easily scale as the business grows – without adding additional staff.
