Evolving Customer Preferences
With the insurance industry playing catch-up to deliver superior customer experience, there is still a window of opportunity for insurers to improve their digital agility to attract and retain customers as BigTechs are preparing to establish a presence in the insurance industry.
When assessed on cross-industry customer experience scores, the insurance industry is placed third behind retail (consumer products) and banking. Thus, while insurance is performing better than average, increased customer engagement efforts may lead to parity with front runners such as retail. Within financial services, too, insurance trails banking across various parameters (overall customer experience, customer satisfaction, and being proactive). Thus, insurers must adopt emerging technology quickly to leverage its customer-experience-enhancing benefits.
