The two core capabilities for a Property & Casualty Insurer are:
- Pricing risk right
- Paying all valid but only valid claims
Excel at these two tasks and a carrier will have a significant cost edge to exploit in the marketplace. Everything else from upgraded Policy Administration and Claims systems to better CRM and direct channel capabilities are just enhancements that allow the Carrier to better deploy its core capabilities for profitable growth. Right now the industry is investing large sums in upgrading their core transactional systems in the expectation that better transaction execution will yield dividends in cost, service, speed and decision analytics.
- Spend several years and nine figures to replace core systems infrastructure to improve performance and then when done, use the better information to make better risk pricing and claims paying decisions, or
- Focus on liberating the information already extant in the carrier’s systems and join that with external data to to make better risk pricing and claims paying decisions.
The former path constitutes a long lead time, high risk investment that will yield hard dollar benefits only grudgingly while the latter approach is a much lower risk, lower cost and rapid investment approach.
