Email is a convenient way for insurers’ to communicate with policyholders, but every message is different and standards are few. Some requests include attachments. Some warrant a simple response, others require research. No two are the same.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is perfectly suited to tackle the one-million policy servicing request emails that flow through insurers’ inboxes every year. Advances in natural language processing (NLP) make it possible for AI solutions to read conversational emails. Machine learning (ML) capabilities allow them to grow more accurate over time.
Managing the requests presents an operational challenge for insurers and an opportunity for differentiation: Customer experience and 24 x 7 availability is a key differentiator for insurers. AI lets them address the challenge with solutions that are scalable across multiple lines and processes.
Together with a leading P&C insurer, we developed an AI-based solution to process service requests. The result? The automation of cancellation, endorsement requests, and certificate issuance was successful for ~80% of emails. It slashed manual work by 50%.
Here’s how it works: Messages are retrieved from mailboxes and then Optical Character Recognition (OCR) with pattern-based extraction read the message content. A NLP engine identifies the email’s intent and extracts relevant data. An exception-handling mechanism routes difficult-to-interpret emails. If the solution’s confidence level drops below 80%, it routes the request for human intervention.
Once the data is ingested, the cognitive engine creates an ACORD standard messaging output that allows the email request to integrate with Guidewire™ modules. The solution facilitates ML by tracking manual edits and feeding them back into the cognitive learning module.
As insurers move toward greater adoption of AI we recommend they focus on the following best practices:
With email the communication channel of choice for many policyholders, improving response time while cutting associated costs lets insurers provide the superior customer experience that differentiates them in the marketplace.
