Why Data Prefill Is on the Rise in Commercial Lines

From Digital Insurance

Application forms for commercial insurance quite simply have too many questions, writes Karen Pauli of SMA. Business insurance customers don’t want to spend time filling out forms any more than consumers do – they want a frictionless interaction. Enter data prefill and new data sources.

Pauli writes: “Insurers covering all but the most complex jumbo commercial lines have an amazing opportunity to utilize the same data integration techniques for data prefill to automatically integrate data into more complex lines of business – to improve data accuracy and thus drive profitability.”

From Government Technology

Texas legislators are considering a proposal to test a program for issuing digital and mobile-friendly driver’s licenses and ID cards. The program would also enable citizens to renew and update licenses remotely without visiting a motor vehicle office.

Our take: Ending long lines and wait times at the DMV? Hurrah! Intelledox already provides underlying technology to support digital license renewals in Australia. We can’t wait to see this idea moving to the U.S.
