Mindtree's testing services for the insurance industry

The insurance industry is getting set for the next round of growth after a long spell of volatile economic conditions. Consolidation coupled with intense competition is predominant in major markets. There is pressure to maintain underwriting discipline while ensuring healthy growth. Increased catastrophe losses have made modeling and assessment a standard underwriting practice in pre-bind processes.

Insurers are looking to introduce newer products for the digitally savvy customers and brokers. There is an increasing demand for organizations to establish independent testing functions to support key system initiatives like:

  • Enhancement / modernization of existing core systems (sales and distribution, policy administration, claims management, underwriting)
  • „„Introduction of newer integration standards aided by technology adoption (legacy modernization, SOA / web services, etc.) to aid effective consolidation
  • „„Streamlining core business processes (policy administration and claims processing) and automation in new business, policy issuance and claims for faster time to market with new product rollouts
  • „„New digital ventures to reach out to an upwardly online / mobile demographic
