Data is in the driving seat now Britain, not that Rylan guy from the Cinch adverts. By adding layers of real time data from actual driving, on top of the basic postcode, job, claims and other policyholder details, insurers can get a deeper insight into the actual risk. Even better, you can calculate renewals more accurately. They can also activate a stack of connected third party companies in the FNOL chain if something goes wrong too.
Here’s some press info from WNS and By Miles;
WNS Assistance, a part of the WNS insurance offering and one of the UK’s leading providers of end-to-end claims management solutions, today announced a new partnership with By Miles, an insurtech startup and motor Managing General Agent (MGA), to manage claims for a first-of-its-kind connected car insurance policy using the real-time data of the vehicle.
