Future-proofing insurance- The journey from insurance to InsurTech with Dynamics 365

As insurance includes a heap of processes like risk scoring and assessment, claim processing and management, and crafting policies, the prime purpose of all these processes is to help individuals and businesses mitigate financial risks in an unforeseen event. But what if these customers of yours choose your competitor because of a disappointing experience with your claim processing? We are sure you aren’t up to risking such losses!    

So, how can insurers like you insure their business in this dynamic digital market?   

Here is where ERP systems come in!    

ERP systems integrate your core business functions and processes under a single roof. So, you get enhanced collaboration, better operational efficiency, and increased productivity. However, to get these benefits, you must implement your ERP correctly. After all, it comes with its challenges that impact your business processes. Therefore, to highlight the hurdles of your ERP implementation, let us use the PESTLE analysis tool.  

With this tool, get a micro-level view of the ERP challenges you may have to prepare for. 

Firstly, the political challenge that an insurer needs to buckle up for. Political challenges align with every region your business steps into. While each region has its regulations, you must adhere to each one of them. Such adherence is quite challenging. Nevertheless, regulations are dynamic in nature. So, pacing with their frequent changes is another hard nut to crack. The effect? Fragmented operations across different regions. 

Would an agile system suffice this need?  

Absolutely, but at a heavy cost. 

Insurers find it financially draining to implement and maintain agile ERP systems to handle such dynamic regulations. They juggle balancing their economic distress and getting maximum value from the investment. Now, think, taking on so much political and financial stress, your team resists toward a change. The mere human psychology of getting out of the comfort zone of familiar workflows and routines takes over digital transformation efforts!  

However, change management challenges arise due to integration complexities as well. While we focus on routines, imagine the issues that surface when integrating modern ERP solutions with your legacy systems. Your teams know the degree of overwhelming duty it would become with the data exchange in multiple formats, architectures, and operational intricacies. Additionally, as insurers, you deal with massive customer data. In this ever-changing digital landscape, compromising such sensitive information is a red flag for your organization. So, the challenge of safeguarding such information while adhering to regulatory compliance is immense.   

Now, if you get hold of such an ERP platform that addresses these issues swiftly but fails to achieve environmental sustainability while scaling? Your business shall gain operational inefficiencies, lost opportunities, and competitive disadvantage. 

So, is there any one-stop solution for insurers like you?
