by Somya Bhadola, Skand Bhargava, Rohit Sharma

The P&C insurance BPO market has been continually growing as buyers of services aim at containing costs, optimizing processes, improving customer experience, and leveraging digital technologies for multiple strategic objectives. Different P&C insurance clients have different asks from their BPO service providers depending on their business objectives and maturity of outsourcing engagements. Some of the recent trends that are driving market expansion are:

  • Geographies outside of the United States and the United Kingdom have picked up pace due to the demand for digital interventions
  • In order to enhance the customer experience, underwriting and claims operations are being targeted for lean and digitalization
  • The growing prominence of InsurTechs is now beckoning traditional, large insurers to either invest in them or setup their own digitally-backed insurance operations
  • Buyers are demanding analytics services for customer, agent, and broker insights; fraud prevention to improve margins; as well as for improving operational KPIs

Consequently, service providers are responding to buyer demands by building multiple requisite capabilities including:

  • Augmentation solutions around data digitization, workflow automation, cognitive, IoT, and analytics, either through partnerships such as with RPA vendors and InsurTechs or acquisitions
  • Domain-led consulting units to assist insurers in more transformative engagements such as process optimization or reengineering for automation leverage
  • Expansion of scope of services, specifically around end-to-end underwriting and claims processing including claims adjustment

While almost all the service providers are making investments to augment their competitive positioning, the ability to customize these investments for P&C insurers and the right go-to-market strategies are creating the differentiation.
