Advisory

We help insurers make better decisions about technology strategy and projects. Our clients get access to a full team of executive-level experts, plus an extensive library of independent research on trends, best practices, and vendors. All for one flat annual fee that’s less than half the cost of one internal strategy analyst.

“Like a Team of Experts down the Hall”

Our research and advisory service gives you unlimited, as needed phone and email access to a team of executive-level insurance technology experts. We are available to help your team understand industry trends, best practices, and solution providers. Some recent client consultations have included discussions of digital business strategy, developing a business case for core systems modernization, adopting agile development, and understanding the difference between billing vendors.

Hundreds of Reports, No Seat Licenses

We publish an average of 30-40 new independent, in-depth reports each year, on a broad range of topics of importance to insurer CIOs, their teams, and their business leader peers.

Reports are delivered in PDF, may be freely circulated within client organizations without seat license restrictions. Our goal is to maximize the enterprise value of our research to your organization.

Strategy Workshops

We conduct an annual in-person workshop session with each of our clients, focused specifically on their most important needs. This might be an interactive presentation on technology trends and strategies across a range of areas, a working session with project teams focused on specific issue, or an executive or board-level discussion about relevant technology trends and impact to business. Additional sessions may also be purchased any time.

Project Advisory

In addition to our Retained Advisory Service, our team members can also actively support client teams through our Project Advisory service. Under this service, our of our senior team members joins the client project team for remote and onsite working sessions, and contributes to development of internal client materials. Unlike our consulting services, there’s no need to formalize scope or deliverables in advance. Clients get an executive-level project advisor and member on a week-by-week basis.

More than 90 Insurer Clients

Our clients range from Fortune 100 insurers to small mutual and regionals, across life insurance, annuities, benefits, personal lines, commercial lines, specialty, and workers compensation. While our team maintains a global perspective and has international experience, the focus of our client work and our research is on US and Canadian operations. This means we’re familiar with the reality of your business, not trying to apply global trends or far-out future predictions to your case.
