Digital and New Business Capabilities are Driving Mid- to Large-Size Life Insurers' Modernization: Novarica CIO Study
PHILADELPHIA, July 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In a new research report underwritten by Equisoft, Novarica presents the findings of an interview series conducted with mid- to large-size US life insurance carriers to identify the key drivers for policy administration system modernization projects, as well as the major factors that determine their success.
"For 60% of insurers surveyed, improving digital and new business capabilities stand out as the key drivers for modernization, followed by improvements in productivity to allow faster and more fluid underwriting processes and workflows," said Tom Benton, Vice President of Research and Consulting at Novarica.

"Modernizing a core policy admin system is a significant endeavor thatrequires organizational buy-in," commented David Nicolai, Vice President, Insurance Solutions at Equisoft. "Most people at insurance companies have never been through a core system replacement, so the pre-planning and evaluation phases are really key. Take your time, envision your future business, carve out your priorities, really get to know the product and the vendors that are involved. And before you make that final decision, recognize that your modernization effort is a journey. I see too many insurers who view a core system implementation as a marathon, and 'going live' as the finish line. In reality, that's when insurers are getting to the start line. When you go live, that's when you can begin to incrementally roll out new features and services that will enhance your whole customer journey and accelerate growth."
