Reinsurance represents the largest asset on most P&C insurers’ balance sheets. This asset equates to millions of dollars across the insurance industry. Yet, many insurers are still using antiquated systems to administer their reinsurance business – in simple spreadsheets, in some cases – and they are reliant on a single individual or small, specialized group of employees to track down the missing funds.
To some degree, leakage affects all carriers. However, insurers in the E&S market are most impacted, since claims in this area tend to be particularly complex and the process for settling these claims can take years. Automating processes can go a long way in helping insurers regain recoverables that were previously lost or difficult to recapture.
Join us for this free 60-minute Insurance & Technology webinar to learn how automating ceded reinsurance processes can help insurers gain efficiencies – and regain millions of dollars lost to leakage. In this program, Craig Robinson, Head of U.S. Business Development at Xuber, will discuss:
- How automation can reduce leakage;
- The potential dangers for insurers that do not automate these processes;
- Options available to today’s insurers;
- The qualitative and quantitative benefits to carriers that automate.
