NEW YORK, Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EXL [NASDAQ: EXLS], a leading global analytics and digital operations and solutions company, announced today that it has been recognized as a Leader in Everest Group’s Digital Platform and Augmentation Suite (DPAS) in Insurance BPS PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2022.
Everest Group cites EXL’s continuing growth, insurance industry-specific analytics and digital solutions, and value delivered to clients as the key factors behind its top-ranked performance in this year’s assessment. Noting the significant impact that digital technology has had on the insurance industry, the Everest Group report evaluated firms’ ability to deploy digital solutions to optimize employee productivity, improve efficiency and drive better outcomes. The report also notes EXL’s significant investments in areas such as content extraction and customer experience transformation, which have driven strong results for clients.
“This recognition from Everest Group underscores our unique, data-led approach to digital transformation,” said Ankor Rai, EVP & Chief Digital Officer, EXL. “Today, the insurance industry is challenged by rising operational costs and increasing customer expectations for innovation in products and servicing experience. But these aren’t two different challenges. Data and AI have collapsed the traditional divide between the back-office operations and front office CX. Successful data-led implementations require a new set of capabilities from partners who understand the insurance domain, who have the expertise to access siloed and dark data, can convert that into insight, and connect customer touch points with back-end operations.”
Each year, Everest Group presents detailed assessments of BPS insurance providers. This is the first year that Everest Group has published research evaluating the leading service providers on the basis of their digital platforms and solutions.
“As the pandemic uncovered inadequacies within processes for many insurance enterprises, it became imperative to transform their operating models. Digital platforms and solutions became instrumental during this time of volatility,” said Abhi Kothari, Practice Director, Everest Group.
“EXL, being a leader among insurance BPS providers and a preferred partner for many enterprises, is playing a pivotal role in modernizing the industry. Through its proprietary AI:OS™ with end-to-end capabilities, including a platform ecosystem, cloud infrastructure, automation, AI, and analytics capabilities, EXL supports carriers to achieve better speed to market, scaling of operations, reduction in expense ratios, and improved customer experience,” Kothari said. “Additionally, EXL’s insurance specific solutions add significant advantage across the entire insurance value chain. Its technology prowess is evident in the sophisticated nature of these solutions, with more than 85% of its existing contracts involving a DPAS construct in them, leading to its positioning as a Leader.”
Vikas Bhalla, EVP and Head of Insurance at EXL, said, “Insurers operating in the current environment need comprehensive solutions that support faster, more accurate decisioning across all aspects of their businesses. By combining our deep industry expertise with our industry-leading data, analytics and digital solutions, we are enabling insurers to streamline their operations, anticipate and adjust to changing market dynamics and deliver more personalized customer experiences.”
