Insurance Nexus Unveils Agenda and Announces Brand-New Speaker Line-Up for Fourth Annual Connected Claims USA Summit 2020


As customer expectations have risen thanks to new platforms and products, so too has the level of technological sophistication as artificial intelligence, chatbots, drones, telematics and apps have become common in multiple industries. The insurance industry is now at a critical juncture as carriers seek to transform their claims processes, using new technologies to meet rising customer expectations and reduce costs. According to a recent survey, over 70% of insurance carriers are looking to invest in AI and automation in the next 2-5 years in order to make the leap that many retailers and service providers already have.

Through a research driven agenda covering a wide variety of urgent industry challenges led by experienced industry experts and insurance thought leaders, the Connected Claims USA Summit will provide Insurance Carriers with the tools to:

  • Achieve Unparalleled Efficiency that Directly Impacts Your Bottom Line: Create a unified foundation for agile and business-driven innovation rooted in enterprise data management to optimize claims and deliver greater accuracy and effectiveness across people, processes and technologies
  • Turn Innovation Into a Competitive Edge: Choose progress over perfection and foster a culture of innovation capable of harnessing multiple technologies to dynamically meet your customer’s needs and stay ahead of your competition
  • Deliver a Seamless Omnichannel Claims Experience: From fully automated to highly complex claims, make every single interaction count by leveraging real-time data and AI for a flawless and hyper-personalized experience
  • Uncover the Roadmap for Claims Tech Integration: Fully overcome legacy systems and siloed data to unlock the power of tech throughout the claims process and start reaping the rewards of your innovation strategy
  • Give Rise to the Claims Professional of the Future: Empower claims adjusters to be problem-solvers powered by real-time access to relevant data and information, creating a culture of speed and transparency that simultaneously attract new talent and deliver new value to the organization
