By Edlyn Cardoza
Since forever, insurance has been a valuable option for individuals looking to protect their loved ones from potential threats. The pandemic has further reinforced the necessity of preparing for the unexpected. However, the barriers to enrolment in any insurance are several, and with many complicated coverage options, the insurance industry is looking for a makeover.
Fortunately, tech-savvy insurance companies, commonly known as the InsurTech industry, have arisen to make the insurance landscape better. InsurTech companies leveraging AI and data science offer an improved user experience at an affordable price. They also help reduce the requirement for repetitive processes and tailor plans to each customer’s needs. As insurance companies work to offer better customer experience, InsurTech has enjoyed a steady rise to power.
