Palo Alto, CA (BusinessWire)

 

Atidot’s platform will provide carriers with real-time, efficient and actionable insights to grow policyholder lifetime value

 

Atidot, a provider of machine learning and predictive analytics solutions for life insurers, has entered into an agreement with NTT DATA, a digital business and IT services leader. Atidot’s AI and predictive analytics solutions will combine with NTT DATA’s Global Insurance Digital Platform (GIDP)TM ecosystem. The collaboration will also allow NTT DATA to leverage Atidot’s solutions in NTT DATA’s Innovation Studio as value-added services.

 

“Adding the power of Atidot’s AI models to our GIDP TM ecosystem can further enable our clients to enhance the customer experience capabilities to develop mature conservation programs, mitigate unintended risks, and gives them the intelligence to drive growth objectives by optimizing ROI and increasing efficiencies for growth,” said Mercedes Concepcion-Gray, Chief Strategy and Growth Leader, Insurance, NTT DATA Services.

 

Atidot’s platform produces actionable insights that may help grow policyholder lifetime value and enables efficient operationalization of these insights. Atidot’s models have shown potential in significantly impacting policyholder experiences and financial return to the carrier. As a result, carriers will be able to more accurately predict policyholder behavior to optimize premium persistency, utilize AI models to improve life block valuation accuracy when purchasing or selling a life block, and more accurately predict market activity in the distribution channel. Additionally, they will be able to use analytics to reduce underwriting cycle time and to use in-force block data to improve new client acquisition and understanding annuity market behavior.

 

“NTT DATA is an excellent partner to leverage Atidot’s AI and predictive capabilities,” said Dror Katzav, Founder and CEO, Atidot. “This partnership will present carriers with access to our real-time models to help them quickly assess the value of each book and really leverage predictive abilities to optimize their services. We are very excited to partner with NTT DATA to continue providing a best-in-class customer experience as they lead the market in innovative technology services.”

SCOR and its subsidiary ReMark announce a partnership with Atidot on a new in-force performance solution for life insurers

Palo Alto, CA (BusinessWire)

 

SCOR and its subsidiary ReMark announce that they have signed a partnership agreement with Atidot on a solution designed to increase in-force business value for life insurers. The innovative digital solution will deliver significant value for the partners’ clients by better predicting policyholder behavior and developing engaging marketing strategies to retain customers.

 

A global reinsurer, SCOR continues to leverage its industry expertise and collaboration with ecosystem partners to design and offer innovative solutions to its clients that help drive growth, solve key business problems, and achieve strategic objectives.

 

“SCOR believes that it’s not enough for a reinsurer to provide competitive reinsurance in today’s market. This partnership reflects our commitment to foster solutions that add value to our clients, and to ensure that life insurance meets the needs of more consumers in a personalized and engaging way,” says Rick Pretty, Senior Vice President and Head of Knowledge Commercialization at SCOR.

 

The solution combines Atidot’s artificial intelligence and data modeling platform, with ReMark’s solid marketing expertise and consumer insight. Insurance companies can expect to better engage with customers, improve retention of existing policies, optimize policyholder coverage and increase the value of their in-force business. The partners have a strong track record in the U.S. market.

 

“This partnership provides a unique solution in the industry,” says Dror Katzav, CEO and Founder of Atidot. “Our predictive modeling is based on advanced data science and enriched data that creates a whole new level of engagement opportunities for customers and advisors. It’s a win-win.”

 

Because carriers’ business objectives and distribution needs vary, this new solution was designed to be customizable and flexible. Atidot will first score carrier data sets to identify policies that, for example, are likely to lapse in the next four to six months. ReMark will then use this analysis to develop appropriate marketing campaigns aimed at proactively preventing lapse and following up on those leads with a high propensity to buy. The solution can be easily adapted to also identify opportunities within a customer database for upselling and cross-selling. It is end-to-end, and includes insurer and agent-branded communications, as well as personalized marketing and sales execution strategies.

 

Steve Gaertner, Senior Vice President, Distribution Strategies for ReMark adds, “We are proud to bring ReMark’s proven experience of engaging end-consumers to the table, having run over 12,000 campaigns to date. This solution is easy to implement for carriers and I’m excited to see how it will improve our clients’ business outcomes.”

Today, Atidot, an insurtech company empowering life insurers with big data and predictive analytics tools, and Sureify, a next-generation life and annuity platform enabling digital sales, service, and engagement, announced a new partnership to bring to their unique tools to the industry. The partnership will enable life insurers to collect new data in order to produce actionable insights, allowing carriers to more effectively engage with their policyholders.
