There’s no question that the mobile channel is becoming increasingly important to insurance companies. More than 60% of respondents to Novarica’s recent Mobile in Insurance study said they were planning to add new mobile capabilities in 2013. But how many of these implementations will gain traction with customers, distributors and employees? There are tremendous opportunities – including claims submission, premium payments, policy information access and prospecting -- around mobility in insurance, but to capitalize on them insurers need a cost-effective and scalable strategy for developing robust mobile apps and providing a consistent experience to all constituents across multiple devices and channels. How can insurers gain the mobile advantage?
This free, one-hour webinar, hosted by Insurance & Technology editorial director Kathy Burger, will help insurers take advantage of some of the best practices in mobile strategy:
- Develop a multi-channel strategy that benefits customers and the bottom line.
- Manage device and OS fragmentation.
- Test for reliability, accessibility and performance.
- Address the needs of different constituencies (policyholders, prospects, agents, etc.).
- Ensure customer acceptance and use.
- Comply with security and privacy requirements.
Participating in this webinar will help you learn what goes into a winning mobile implementation and how using a single code base approach can help your organization speed development and cost effectively deploy and maintain apps across multiple channels.
