LexisNexis Risk Solutions (Atlanta), a provider of data, analytics and technology solutions for insurance carriers, has announced a new alliance with Agenium, a provider of disruptive platform technology that aims to integrate data and analytics into the life insurance application process, delivered through a no-code configurable platform.
The alliance has been forged at a time when life insurers are grappling with how best to improve the application process, a LexisNexis Risk Solutions statement notes. At the point of application, life insurers must detect fraud and misrepresentation, collect and correct missing or inaccurate consumer data—while, at the same time, creating a process that is not onerous to consumers. And many must also deal with legacy systems, dated user interfaces, and limited ways to resolve not in good order (NIGO) applications in real time.
“LexisNexis Risk Solutions is known for helping insurers mitigate fraud and identity risk, along with our ability to independently, electronically verify key consumer data points, which helps speed the application process and improves the consumer experience,” comments Debra Gangelhoff, VP and general manager, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “Life insurers today are seeking to bridge the legacy technology gap and deploy more sophisticated approaches to data integration. Through our alliance with Agenium, we will help deliver more data earlier in the application process to allow carriers to triage cases quickly and provide an improved experience for consumers and producers, while still mitigating risk.”
Agenium has harnessed the accuracy of LexisNexis Instant ID and LexisNexis Life Data Prefill solutions to empower life insurers with a single-source solution to expedite a more accurate electronic application experience, the LexisNexis Risk Solutions statement says. This proactive collaboration can be deployed as a stand-alone e-App solution or can be used to enhance existing technology workflow, as Agenium offers short-turn delivery configurability in a dynamic and unique customer experience. Recognizing that speed-to-market is paramount, the Agenium Platform enables clients to enter production in weeks or months, positioning them to capitalize on new revenue growth opportunities, the statement adds.
Aligning with Agenium, LexisNexis Risk Solutions says it continues to meet its objectives of leveraging data and mortality modeling to help life insurers meet the needs of their customers and business by more quickly and accurately assessing underwriting risk, reducing acquisition costs, helping prevent fraud and improving stratification and retention.
“Agenium’s no-code platform combined with the data from LexisNexis Risk Solutions will allow life carriers to make next-gen, highly secure, sophisticated e-Apps a reality,” comments Mike Risley, CEO, Agenium. “Whether our clients choose to use their existing platforms, or the state-of-the-art Agenium platform and decision engine, our technology is there to support powerful, reflexive logic to speed the application journey and deliver more intelligence via data earlier in the process.”
