What is the Role of AI in the Insurance Industry?

The insurance sector deals with risks, which mainly entails the assessment of different possibilities. As various technological trends arise, the insurance sector should rapidly adapt to the changes. Today, it is crucial for companies to examine the positive aspects of artificial intelligence and apply it to their business structures since it offers many benefits.

The Benefits Of Applying AI Into The Insurance Sector

Artificial intelligence has a wide range of uses from pricing to time optimization and is being applied more and more in the insurance world. Where AI meets the insurance industry, its core benefits can be grouped under five headings. These are:

1) Richer Data Pool

Collecting and processing data is a vital function of any computational structure. Since data assessment is one of the main focuses in the insurance sector, companies are creating a growing interest in high-technology products to make a difference. In this context, one of the top advantages of applying AI-based solutions is being able to process much larger quantities of data.

With the advent of sophisticated technologic products, companies now can collect and tailor more data according to their services. AI-based systems can collect and extract additional data using existing information on a larger scale and build more complex prediction models or derive results that may not be otherwise possible. Those systems can provide insights and solutions about the customer needs, and make efficient predictions in the underwriting process. With more complex structures, AI-based systems can even improve their original predictions over time.

For accurate data collection and advanced risk scoring, Virtual i Technologies’ authentic AI-based system, [VRS]™ Virtual Risk Space offers custom and editable underwriting solutions for customers. Being specifically engineered for better risk assessment, [VRS]™ Virtual Risk Space generates instant and detailed underwriting risk data.

2) Optimization

For the insurance industry, time is as important as any other value. According to McKinsey, AI systems can reduce days to hours and hours to minutes for insurance operations. That enables insurers to benefit from time optimization using AI-based tools. With advanced and automated insurance technologies, companies are not only able to offer faster solutions to insurers, but they also can use that saved time to focus on continuously upgrading their services and serving more customers.

3) Automation

Automation promises a more powerful path for insurance companies since it allows employees to focus more on customers and their needs instead of working long and manually on data-entry processes. It also reduces new hire needs and the workload. Automated systems operated by AI also provide precise insights and solutions because they mainly use and classify data sets and recognize different data patterns. By using different algorithms, AI-based automated systems can extract conclusions for real-life solutions. They are also adjustable and upgradable according to altering customer priorities and technological trends.

4) Better Customer Service

AI and machine learning systems can both be used by insurance companies for various types of services. That includes the insurance underwriting and risk engineering process, alongside claim handling and customer operations. With AI-driven solutions, companies can provide better support for their customers to achieve higher customer satisfaction. By creating AI-based customer service tools (Virtual Customer Assistants, VCA’s), companies can benefit from a more automated and faster problem-solving process with reduced employee workloads.

Being a practical and advanced application, Virtual i Technologies integrates a video call option into customer services. The advanced in-app video communication solution, Hi My Eye, enables audiovisual data gathering during the conversations, taking the location of the callee automatically in a secure and structured way for more efficient customer service operations and better customer experience.

5) Personalization

AI-powered systems offer diverse applications thanks to their sophisticated, data-driven technology. Personalized packages empowered by an intelligent and adjustable AI structure are more likely to meet customer demands compared to traditional insurance services.

According to data provided by Oracle, by 2020, 8 out of 10 businesses have adopted AI as their core customer service solution. Where companies can provide a richer catalog of services, customers can access more accurate choices according to their needs. The key element of AI-based solutions for a personalized service is using different AI and Machine Learning algorithms to create the fitting custom solution for each customer individually. Depending on the current status of the customers and demands, these algorithms can provide more custom and accurate solutions during the underwriting process while providing enhanced pricing options.
