How to Tame Complexity in Loss Control Operations

Wednesday, December 9, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Loss control is elemental to the success of commercial & specialty lines but rapidly evolving complexity represents challenge for loss control and underwriting executives. Effective risk management frequently revolves around multi-location, multi-engineer assessments and a host of stakeholders. A paper-based or spreadsheet-based environment cannot deliver the value commercial insurers require to compete nor do they bring the advice customers require for the business success. Many insurers believe that a cobbled stack of technology across documents, data, and account management, to name a few systems, will suffice. Given the detailed and complex nature of today’s businesses, loss control requires technology engineered and designed specifically for the discipline.

This Webinar Will Provide:

  • Guidance on the business drivers requiring insurers to invest in technology for loss control
  • A view of how a loss control platform can address insurers needs to manage complicated risks
  • Insurer insights on the value of loss control technology
