In the highly commoditized auto insurance industry, it is natural for consumers to hop between providers and go price-shopping.
Amid competition and the inherent risks in the insurance industry, this prevalent price elasticity – where insurers have the option of adjusting product pricing based on demand to win their loyalty – either hampers profitability or worsens customer churn. Add to this, the transactional nature of today’s insurance ecosystem, and the result is subpar customer engagement practices.
This is driving the auto insurance companies to embrace continuous data-driven engagement programs that can benefit across multiple fronts. In line with this, TCS has developed the insurance telematics solution that leverages data to mitigate risk, increase profitability, and open new lines of revenue. The solution helps auto insurance providers to capitalize on the power of 5G and internet of behavior (IoB) to push newer and more personalized products into the market, while reducing risks.
Traditional insurance companies face massive competition given the emergence of digital-native players.
This has compelled them to move away from transactional business models and create more wholesome experiences and customer-centric journeys. This reduces customer churn and helps create product and service differentiation in this highly commoditized market. This will ultimately enable companies to transform their engagement and explore new avenues of innovation.
The TCS insurance telematics solution empowers insurers with telematics and connected car technologies to cater to the ever-evolving consumer demands. The solution covers the end-to-end aspects of the telematics value chain, from data collection, data enrichment, and big data analytics to business solution designing. With the help of contextual risk behavior data collected from smartphone apps and connected vehicles – that includes acceleration, braking, cornering, speeding, distracted driving, and more – insurers derive actionable insights. In addition to underwriting the best-fit low-risk policy for a customer through these insights, the TCS solution also helps insurers tap into the manufacturers’ ecosystem for sales.
With the TCS insurance telematics solution, companies can design unique programs and adopt new-age business models, such as unified mobility programs, where the customer’s risk is monitored across different modes of transport. Accordingly, insurers can reward their patrons for good behavior, which goes a long way in customer retention.
