Improved decision making: Three keys to getting value from data analytics

In today’s information age, data is everywhere. We’re inundated with it. But gathering data is just one piece of a much larger puzzle. Data isn’t very useful if nothing is done with it. It’s the analysis that leads to using data effectively to make better decisions that is the true key to success.  Workers' compensation is no exception. Increasingly, the success of your workers' compensation program is dependent on how data is being used to take action. If you’re not seeing the value of da

The 2018 CAT season has started with a vengeance. Already, we are seeing damage from flooding, earthquakes and a volcano in Hawaii. On top of that, hurricane season will soon be underway, the potential increases for droughts and related fires, and we will remain ready for ever-unpredictable earthquakes and tornadoes. What has changed since 2017, a year unlike any most of us have ever experienced in the insurance industry since the “Four in ’04” and Katrina, Rita, Wilma in 2005? Major hurricanes

Technology and the future of claims adjusting

As we prepare for the 2018 storm season, I can’t help but look back at the impact of 2017’s extreme weather.

Catastrophic weather events continue to test underwriting performance, stretch resources in restoring disrupted supply chains, and impact timelines for estimating losses and rebuilding infrastructures. One constant is having the right partners when handling major claim events. This can mean th

Improving consumer experience

Just this past week Dave North, our President and CEO, reminded an audience at the Integrated Benefits Institute conference that our industry must strive for one button simplicity.

Growth of video technology puts helpful “eyes” everywhere

In vehicles, cameras can provide key information for accident investigations. They can also reduce distracted driving accidents for employees who drive as a part of their jobs; the presence of the camera can keep employees from texting and improve safety on the road.1 If an accident does happen, the cameras can provide accurate details needed for completing investigations and settling liability claims. In addition to video, vehicles also have other advanced technology options through telematics
