For insurance carriers, document and content management technologies support the recordkeeping of insurance forms and provide insurers’ with multichannel customer document delivery and communications capabilities. The high level of carrier investment in document & content management solutions is driven by external demands and internal constraints. 

Consumer requirements for multichannel sales and service, including electronic touchpoints with carriers via mobile devices, self-service Web portals, e-mails, and social media drive investment. In addition, improved customer experience and reduced expenses will only be achieved through consolidation of the multiple document systems currently used by insurance carriers due to the siloed approach to technology adoption as well as M&A activity. Carriers will seek providers that address carrier requirements for multichannel delivery and support enterprise-wide implementations.

    Thanks for the post. I have found this to be true with the insurance companies we have done business with providing document management solutions. They are very open to these new solutions and they are starting to understand how drastically they can improve their business processes and overall efficiency of their workplace!
