Sales and Distribution

The Challenge

Traditional sales and CRM systems only provide a fraction of the capabilities demanded by modern sales organizations. They are not equipped to handle the demands of a mobile sales team, and struggle to provide the type of in-depth insight into individual customers or prospects that salespeople need to be effective.

The Solution

To succeed in the insurance industry, it is critical for companies to provide their sales representatives with the information they need to make fast, informed recommendations while on-site with brokers or clients. MicroStrategy provides insurance sales representatives with the ability to quickly view their book of business and analyze real-time information related to quotes, buying patterns, demographics, products, regions, and more. In-app multimedia content such as presentations, brochures, and marketing and training videos help to drive more meaningful conversations with brokers, customers, and sales management. With on-the-go processing of mobile transactions, sales reps can update account information and forecasts, create sales quotes, and log meeting activities, regardless of their internet connectivity. That means sales representatives can focus their energy on growing business and closing deals instead of completing time-consuming administrative tasks. MicroStrategy can also be used to provide a comprehensive view of sales activities across distribution channels, in order to help ensure that the organization is working together to drive revenue and deliver exceptional customer experience.

Underwriting/Project Management

The Challenge

Underwriters are tasked with quickly analyzing massive amounts of data to accurately forecast risk and determine individual pricing levels and coverage eligibility. The accuracy of these calculations is a critical factor in the overall success of an insurance company. If the calculations are not precise, the company runs the risk of being overpriced in comparison to the market, assuming too much financial risk, or suffering significant losses due to unexpected claim payouts.

The Solution

MicroStrategy helps underwriters analyze and act upon massive amounts of data from various sources by arming them with sophisticated analytics and easy-to-use visualization tools. Our powerful tools provide underwriters with a comprehensive view of information related to customer credit history, additional insurance policies held, risk location factors, market information, and more to help them accurately assess risk and provide more informed premium and coverage recommendations. Underwriters can take advantage of MicroStrategy predictive analytics to help further refine their risk scoring processes and customer attrition forecasts, as well as leverage “What-if” analysis to explore the potential impact of various risk factors on an individual’s risk scoring rating. By providing underwriters with an enterprisegrade analytics tool, MicroStrategy can help insurers boost underwriter productivity, increase revenue, and reduce risk and losses.

Policyholder Analysis

The Challenge

Once a policy is sold, insurers don’t frequently interact with customers unless an individual is filing a claim or looking to move their business elsewhere. Given the limited opportunities for face time with customers, it is essential that insurers make the most of every single customer interaction to build loyalty, prompt good wordof-mouth marketing, and drive revenue.

The Solution

MicroStrategy makes it easy for insurers to quickly comb through large amounts of customer data on activities related to website browsing, call center and social media interactions, demographics, and policy purchases. Insurers can extract valuable insights from this data that help them to appropriately group customers for marketing programs, predict customer defection, and personalize interactions they have with their policyholders. By providing better visibility into call center metrics such as wait times, quality and length of calls, and customer satisfaction, MicroStrategy helps insurers to refine their operational, customer service, and sales strategies. MicroStrategy enables insurers to be proactive with customer relationships so they can make the most out of every interaction, build loyalty, and drive revenue growth.

Claims Management

The Challenge

Since the claims process is typically the single largest expense facing an insurer, efficiently monitoring and managing the process and associated payouts is a critical factor in determining longterm growth and profitability.

The Solution

MicroStrategy allows adjusters to access critical data such as policy information, police reports, and medical information via mobile apps. Adjusters have the ability to directly input photos or notes from accident scenes, auto repair shops, or other relevant locations. Office-based claims personnel can use MicroStrategy to analyze real-time claims metrics related to loss, exposure, earned premiums, recovery amounts, frequency, severity, and more. Our applications provide insurers with instant visibility into outstanding and closed claims and features, legal expenses, customer service, and potentially fraudulent activity. Through more efficient claims and faster, more accurate payouts, MicroStrategy helps insurance companies prevent fraud, optimize settlements, and increase customer satisfaction.

Financial Analysis

The Challenge

Too often insurance companies are forced to rely on a variety of line-of-business reporting tools for their financial analysis. What they need is a single, integrated financial reporting tool that is secure, consistent, and built to handle large, complex datasets.

The Solution

Whether an insurer focuses on personal lines, commercial lines, or reinsurance, timely, accurate financial information is critical to success. MicroStrategy helps ensure that organizations are empowered with the insight they need to efficiently manage their daily tasks, make better decisions, and effectively collaborate with colleagues. MicroStrategy financial reporting applications integrate data from a wide range of sources to allow users to seamlessly access critical financial information related to profit and loss, solvency, risk, claims, and expenses. MicroStrategy gives users a secure, personalized view of the financial information that is relevant to their role in the organization. Insurers can also deploy MicroStrategy mobile apps to their executives and board members, giving them instant insight into financial performance. These secure apps help ensure data integrity, reduce costs by replacing large binders of paper, and can lead to significant time savings for the insurer’s internal reporting team.

Compliance and Audit

The Challenge

The regulatory environment for insurers has become increasingly complex in recent years. The internal reporting structures of many insurance companies have struggled to keep up with the growing demands of ensuring compliance with complex regulations related to SOX, MAR, Solvency II, and more.

Marketing

The Challenge

When it comes to buying insurance, consumers want more than just a policy, they want an insurer that delivers intangible qualities like security and peace of mind. For insurers, marketing is a great way to create competitive differentiation and relay the intangible benefits of their products. But to be successful, insurers need a way to measure and track the effectiveness of their marketing efforts and campaigns.

The Solution

MicroStrategy helps provide insurers with a real-time analytics solution that enables them to optimize their marketing spend and increase campaign effectiveness. Whether it is weblogs that track browsing behavior, purchase history, customer reviews, or unstructured social media data, MicroStrategy can access data from multiple sources and bring it together in a single dashboard application. Powerful visualizations, mapping features, and data discovery capabilities enable marketing professionals to explore data and better understand trends. These valuable business insights help insurance marketing professionals better define target markets and further refine their messaging.

This knowledge allows insurers to agilely adjust their marketing efforts to increase the effectiveness of campaigns.

Employee Digital Badge

The Challenge

Traditionally, insurers used separate types of credentials to control employee access to offices and enterprise IT systems, resulting in a fragmented approach to identity management and access control. Organizations need a way to deploy a single type of credential that can provide secure, frictionless access to both offices and sensitive IT infrastructure. Providing this type of enterprise access and authentication is key to avoiding data breaches and improving employee productivity and the overall end user experience.

The Solution

Usher’s digital badges enable authorized employees to securely and seamlessly access corporate and branch offices and critical information systems by leveraging their smartphones. With Usher, insurance institutions have a variety of options to protect enterprise information through strong, flexible multi-factor authentication including push notifications, biometrics, one-time passwords, face-to-face validation, and Bluetooth proximity. Usher helps provide visibility into user behavior and actionable intelligence across multiple enterprise systems, enabling insurance organizations to optimize asset utilization, improve productivity, reduce risk, and digitally transform their business operations.

Remote Identity Authentication

The Challenge

Call center fraud has grown by an alarming 45% since 2013.* Scammers are looking to gain access to funds or key assets like money, merchandise, and proprietary information. Many businesses, especially financial and insurance organizations, have fallen prey to social engineering fraud attacks conducted over call center phone lines. These attacks mimic internet‐ and email‐based phishing schemes, in which criminals attempt to acquire personal information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card account information by pretending to be trusted entities.

The Solution

Usher helps prevent consumer fraud by offering secure, remote authentication methods. Insurance call center employees can authenticate a customer’s identity over the phone using one-time Usher codes or push notifications that are available via a user’s smartphone. With Usher, call center personnel can also offer password alternatives, like QR codes, for accessing sensitive applications and customer information. Usher provides organizations with highly configurable and convenient multi-factor authentication including push notifications, biometrics, one-time passwords, face-toface validation, and Bluetooth proximity.
