With IRDAI introducing Video KYC for insurance companies, the sector gets much relief to operate swiftly, as people turn to digital businesses and onboarding. Of course, with the introduction of this new digital tool comes the introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Insurance space, which the industry is slowly but surely adapting to.
AI makes life simpler not only for the parent companies, but for insurance agents as well, who can now get detailed insights into customer interests, understand their insurance needs better, and onboard them in a jiffy, and do all of this, online. With the introduction of Video based KYC in insurance, we at Kwik.ID have noticed an instant willingness to adopt AI, among customers, agents, and companies. Here are some reasons that explain its growth trajectory.
AI and the Insurance Sector
AI technologies aren’t a new term for businesses and are widely used across operations and applications including data analytics, automation, and natural language processing which helps understand the customer better. With AI, agents are assured of better insights regarding customers which thereby culminate into better customer service. Apart from that, AI eliminates the risk of fraud, encourages better productivity and even helps market and up-sell insurance products better. It is believed that by the next decade, AI will reshape the insurance sector with insights regarding a client’s idiosyncratic risks.
AI-powered chatbots add value to your business by providing top-notch support and services. They work without human intervention and also answer complex queries while supporting NeuroLinguistic Programming, which interprets and analyses the customer’s verbal statements and provides an accurate answer. These AI bots can be integrated not only into your website, but across social platforms and other digital interaction tools, so as to streamline your customer data and interactions with them. This helps the company achieve better customer engagement and productivity.
Fraud Detection and Prevention
Fraud detection is a knowledge-intensive activity which is applied across industries like banking and insurance. AI analyses historical data and identifies a set of patterns using Big Data and IoT (Internet of Things) to unlock hidden insights. Moreover, it supports e-signatures, and face detections so as to prevent any kind of fraud. At Kwik.ID, our cutting-edge Video KYC tools are integrated with AI-powered Liveliness and Face Recognition which ensures that the customer being dealt with is real and genuine.
Various regulators and industries have begun noticing the potential of V-KYC for a superior customer driven process that helps onboard them in minutes. IRDAI recently released a circular that permits Video KYC for insurance companies as well as for agents, which benefits everyone, including policy buyers, who can now buy with ease. The compliance process has been made simpler, physical contact has been minimised and business continues to move faster than ever before, owing to a quick video KYC process. It takes barely two minutes to onboard a customer now with our video KYC tools, so we can certainly vouch for it being a swift process.
AI technologies make information systems more adaptive and improve the interaction between humans and computer systems. Bots can review claims, verify policy details, check for fraud, and process payments, making the process much faster and efficient. Underwriters have a more accurate risk assessment, and applications are processed in just a fraction of time.
Insurance executives believe that AI will significantly transform the industry in the near future by enhancing the customer experience with automated personalized services. As customers embrace the digital age and AI adoption gains momentum across industries, insurance companies have begun to show signs of stepping up and transforming their processes with cutting edge technologies like AI.
