Insurity recognized AF Group for incorporating effective automation strategies and tools into their underwriting processes
HARTFORD, Conn.--Insurity, a leading provider of cloud-based software for insurance carriers, brokers, and MGAs, today announced that AF Group was named "Automation Champion of the Year" at Excellence in Insurance. The Excellence in Insurance awards ceremony took place in San Diego. It recognized the outstanding performances of P&C organizations in categories including exceptional policyholder service, digital transformation, and innovative excellence in data and analytics.
AF Group is a nationally recognized holding company whose affiliated insurance companies are premier providers of specialty insurance solutions offered through independent agents nationwide. AF Group recognized that a primary challenge their underwriters faced was the time-consuming task of manually searching through multiple sources of loss data, which could lead to incorrect loss projections, underwriting errors, and gaps in pricing.
Recognizing the urgency for an automated approach to loss data, AF Group partnered with Groundspeed Analytics to engineer a process that facilitates seamless loss run submissions from AF Group's internal pricing tool directly to Groundspeed. Results are imported into AF Group's loss projection tool within minutes. The outcomes have been transformative, as AF Group's underwriters now operate at increased speed and precision and are more confident in the results they produce. Enhanced data mining capabilities have further augmented their ability to assess trends, expenses, and more.
"AF Group is grateful to be named the Automation Champion of the Year by Insurity," said Samuel Hosey, Director, Innovation at AF Group. "The power of automation has greatly accelerated our processes and allowed us to tap into increased levels of efficiency. However, it is essential to acknowledge the irreplaceable role of human insight in our operations. Automation has propelled us further in our journey, but the melding of human expertise with technology truly amplifies our success."
"Automation continues to be a driving force of change within the industry, and those who successfully incorporate it into their business are poised to succeed in the marketplace," said Sylvester Mathis, Chief Insurance Officer at Insurity. "AF Group demonstrated the ability to successfully harness automation technologies to revolutionize operational processes, enhancing efficiency and productivity."
