Majesco Announces Launch of Insight Driven Underwriting Workbench - Majesco Digital Underwriter360 for P&C

Majesco | September 03, 2021

Majesco, a global leader of cloud insurance software solutions for insurance business transformation, today announced the launch of Majesco Digital Underwriter360 for P&C, a next-gen insight driven underwriting workbench for commercial and specialty lines. Majesco Digital Underwiter360, powered by Majesco Digital1st® Insurance is an intelligent, insight-driven cloud-native SaaS, that enhances underwriting efficiency and profitability, drives underwriter productivity and profitability, and creates greater transparency and collaboration with brokers.

“In order for insurers to elevate the customer experience, they must make the underwriting processes more efficient, profitable and responsive,” says Manish Shah, President and Chief Product Officer for Majesco. “Built on Majesco Digital1st® Insurance no code/low code platform, Majesco Digital Underwriter360, leverages today’s leading technology to increase efficiencies and effectiveness, maximize underwriter’s expertise and improves collaboration between underwriters and brokers. Our relationship with KPMG to develop and deliver another next-gen digital solution built with the customer in mind brings a new level of innovation and capability to the industry.”

SMA research highlights the expectations of insurance executives regarding the magnitude of changes coming… 80% of insurance executives expect underwriting to be significantly different than it is today within 5 years and 94% expecting significant change in 10 years. The expected changes expose the gaps between today’s capabilities and those required in the future and which Majesco Digital Underwriter360 addresses.

"The potential for underwriting transformation in P&C is tremendous,” stated Deb Smallwood, Senior Partner at Strategy Meets Action. “Our research indicates significant recognition that this will take a new solution and set of technologies separate from policy management solutions. To make this great leap forward, insurers need new thinking on roles and processes coupled with a new digital platform that is advanced beyond the portals and workbenches of the past. Majesco Digital Underwriter360 represents an innovative new solution that will help revolutionize underwriting.”

Majesco engaged KPMG LLP in the experience centric design and development of the solution using Majesco Digital1st® Insurance, a no code / low code platform with robust insurance content. This new, innovative solution focuses on better insights, increased productivity, and driving more seamless interactions for the underwriter.

Some of the key capabilities include:
  • Insight driven: Multi-level risk view, across the portfolio and line of business for digitally optimized risk assessment and management.
  • Just in time, relevant information: Data and information pushed to the underwriter’s fingertips at the exact moment they need it to optimize underwriting.
  • Intelligent data ingestion and extraction: Refine rules and leverage technologies like AI to collect, automate and analyze the data to provide a full picture of the exposures for a given submission.
  • Portfolio Optimization: Prioritize, assess, and reinforce risk appetite across the portfolio of business through the use of data and a holistic view of risk.
  • Broker Collaboration: Increased and predictable collaboration between broker/agent and underwriter creating full transparency and speed for quote.
  • Streamline underwriter workflow and improve risk assessment: Automated, efficient workflow, routing and case management capabilities to optimize underwriting and improve risk assessment leading to better outcomes.
  • Automated data prefills: Using a growing array of structured and unstructured data sources from InsurTech and traditional third-party data providers to optimize the underwriting process and maximize underwriter’s knowledge.
  • Underwriting control and oversight: Using authority management to monitor and manage underwriting limits, risks and more to align to company guidelines and strategy.
  • Core Integration: Pre-integrated with Majesco Core Suite for P&C and can easily be integrated with any other core solutions.

“We're seeing a lot of activity in digital underwriting as a lynchpin component of modernization and transformation efforts,” stated Jeanne Johnson, Principal at KPMG LLP. “Leveraging a platform solution that connects insights across the underwriter’s interactions, and more easily integrates a rich mix of relevant data offers a path to more sustained value. Productive data, alongside digital enablement, machine learning, and Underwriter360, can address some longstanding pain points to better equip the underwriter talent - to better segment, predict, service, and deliver profitable growth that will continue to be a competitive differentiator.”

As insurers continue to adopt the latest digital technologies, tedious and time-consuming underwriting processes still make it difficult to quickly respond to customer needs and expectations. Without a holistic and unified view, underwriters cannot access risk information to facilitate quick and calculated underwriting management. Majesco Digital Underwriter360, digitally enables technology and data proliferation that transforms how underwriters collect risk data, analyze it, perform multi-level risk assessment, and make decisions resulting in reduction of underwriter’s administrative workload.

The increased efficiency and effectiveness in the underwriting process enables underwriters more time to be utilized in making key decisions and increase collaboration with distributors as opposed to spending time in core processes due to technologically challenged systems. It delivers a profitable underwriter process through centralized digital solutions that provide aggregation and mediation of business as well as system services, so underwriters don’t have to depend on multiple sources of disparate data. Underwriter360 is currently available for commercial and specialty lines with other lines of business to be considered in the future.

Motus Insurance Services Partners With Beazley via BHI Digital, Launching Its Earthquake Product in All 50 States

The Motus Solution | March 02, 2022

Motus Insurance Services, LLC has added Beazley PLC via BHI Digital to provide an elective earthquake program for residential and commercial associations. Beazley is a publicly traded company (LSE:BEZ) with over $3 billion in premium and maintains an A rating by AM Best with a stable outlook. Beazley will give residential associations and their individual unit owners access to the leader in catastrophic deductible buydown insurance in the market, adding more flexibility to the Motus product set with a carrier that can properly underwrite this targeted risk. "This is an important step for Motus and for our clients, We can officially write our earthquake program in all 50 states, and adding Beazley as our 4th insurance carrier further validates our unique earthquake insurance program for associations. Each of our carriers takes a different view on earthquake risk, and the addition of Beazley adds additional capabilities to our program. This means we can offer the most competitive pricing to our clients, whether they're focused on full coverage in the case of a major earthquake, or paying for minor repairs." -CEO Dan Wallis. "Motus Insurance Services, in my opinion, is as innovative of a company in the insurance industry as there is today Through our partnership with Motus Insurance Services, together we are able to provide lower Earthquake deductibles to individual residential owners in an association than are typically available in the insurance marketplace. Instead of being handcuffed with a massive deductible in the event of a loss and the prospect of potential cash flow issues, unit owners are able to purchase through Motus Insurance Services a lower deductible amount that best fits their desires and needs. The team at Motus Insurance Services is as good as there is and we are glad to be partnering with them not just in California, but now throughout the United States." -Kevin Ware, co-founder of BHI Digital. Motus was founded to provide residential association boards and membership with a third option: a custom elective earthquake insurance program that offers individual unit owners the benefits of commercial underwriting and commercial coverages without placing a burden on the association budget. The Motus Opt-in Earthquake Program offers a better option for associations struggling to manage risks within increasingly challenging financial constraints. About The Motus Solution The Motus Opt-In Earthquake Program is designed to bring all the benefits of a traditional master earthquake insurance policy to the more than 30,000 associations and 2.2 million condo owners who are not covered by one. Only a master earthquake policy can allow a condo owner to fully protect the equity in their home. This is because only a master policy can fully cover damages to residential buildings, foundations, garages, underground pipes, and other common areas within the community. Traditional unit owner policies (which are unavailable to many condo owners) were designed to supplement a traditional master policy – not replace the coverage they provide. These traditional unit owner earthquake policies depend on zip code rates and cap critical coverages like loss assessment coverage or contingent liability. Each Motus program is custom-built based on the specific exposures of the association. Once the board approves the Motus program for their association, each unit owner then has the option to purchase their pro-rated share of a master policy – covering unit interiors, residential buildings and common areas. No more mind boggling exclusions.
