Recently, I hosted a training for inside adjusters, and the group consisted of around 20 seasoned claims professionals with an average tenure exceeding seven years. Most of these inside adjusters had spent at least a couple of years in the field, as well. Education & TrainingTechnology
At the beginning of the training, I took a few moments to address the group, and when I started discussing digital tools, I noticed a glazed look come over their faces.
I realized I may have made assumptions about their depth of knowledge when it came to digital innovation in the insurance space, so I stopped and asked, ‘Are you all familiar with what digital transformation for claims means?’
Not a single person did. So, I zoomed out even further and asked, ‘Who has heard of Insurtech?’ Most everyone raised their hands, but when I asked if anyone could tell me what it meant, not one person could.
And therein lies the core issue of the problem: The left hand is not talking to the right. And when there is a lack of understanding, there is resistance to doing. We are well into CAT season already, so there is no better time to fine-tune and improve your claims process.
