A.M. BestTV: The Week Ahead; Insurers Make Inroads in Mobile

OLDWICK, N.J.--()--This episode of A.M. BestTV looks at progress insurers are making in reaching consumers and business users via mobile, including data from The World Insurance Report 2014 from Capgemini and Efmai. The report, which assessed the digital capabilities of more than 250 insurers in 14 countries, found that just 32% of global insurance customers said they had positive customer experiences with their insurer, and that nearly 70% of customers remain at risk of switching carriers. Babu Mauze, vice president of digital transformation solutions for Capgemini Financial Services, said that in five years, insurers expect about 30% of their business to be generated from internet and mobile channels as they become more important to insurance consumers.
