Leveraging ServiceNow FSO for Insurance Policy Administration: Simplifying Complex Processes

Insurers often face challenges in policy administration due to the reliance on disparate point solutions, and understandably so. Usually, these solutions come with their complex technology stacks and are rigged with manual processes and concerns regarding data availability and security. And because they are point solutions, they tend to operate in isolation. This also renders them inefficient in automating recurring tasks, leading to lengthy wait times for customers. And this isn’t the only issue.

Deloitte’s 2023 Insurance Outlook reveals that insurance providers also have a lot on their plate when it comes to addressing market volatility and inflation-driven disposable income pressures. Amid this, it’s only prudent that they leverage a solution like ServiceNow’s Financial Services Operations (FSO) for facilitating frictionless experiences, growth, and customer retention.
