A key benefit of digitization for customers present in the insurance industry includes the availability of a self-service model. The customers today are defined as being present on “omnichannel”. The customers research the products online and then discuss with their closed ones using social media to gain some recommendations rather than going for buying through retail locations.

ii. Self-serviced Dashboards

The self-serviced dashboards have made it easier for the customers to decrypt the complicated insurance policies, calculate monthly premiums. These options are going to have a significant impact on the customer’s longer-term financial future and plans. The complicated coverage costs of the policies can now be virtually seen, thereby, helping the customers to understand the change rates and determining the best plans. Digitization also helps in making it easier for tracking the growing speed of their policies.

iii. Advanced Analytics

The insurance companies are using advanced analytics to gain insights on the needs and preferences of their customers. Advanced analytics also offer the insurance providers and customers to tackle fraudulent claims by building a superior system to detect the frauds by using big data analytics.
