QBE Selected by Insurer CIOs for Novarica Impact Award

·3 min read

BOSTON, July 13, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QBE North America will receive an Impact Award from the Novarica Insurance Technology Research Council, a peer community of hundreds of insurer CIOs. More than ninety CIO council members reviewed more than 60 case studies in three divisions to select the winners for the 10th annual awards.

QBE developed an API marketplace that enables straight-through processing, automated claims adjuster assignments, omni-channel experience, and new business channels. Delivered in 9 months, the project led to 36% transaction growth in quote/bind and saved $3.1M via API reusability.

"Integration and connectivity are major challenges for many insurers, and they can limit how much value new technologies can create within an organization if they’re not created effectively," says Matthew Josefowicz, President/CEO of Novarica and moderator of the Council.

"We are honored to recognized by our insurance technology peers in the Novarica Research Council," adds Ketan Pandit, CIO for QBE North America. "The API marketplace has been a key part of our modernization efforts to improve connectivity and service for customers and work more efficiently. Its adaptability and reusability will continue to pay dividends in the years ahead, and we are very proud of the large team that made the project a success."

QBE’s case study, along with case studies of eleven other winners and more than 50 additional cases considered for Impact Awards, was published this week in Novarica’s 10th Annual Impact Case Study Compendium, online at Novarica has published nearly 300 case studies through this program since 2012.
