Across the sector organisations are striving to increase customer engagement to drive the repeat business you need to enhance market share and profitability – those that fail will be left behind. Following Brexit the race to engage has intensified as customers and clients tend to choose the most trusted brands in uncertain times.
The key challenge is HOW to enhance engagement in today’s fast paced, fast changing, omni-channel digital environment?
The customer engagement challenges are multifaceted and complex – there is no-one size fits all or one final end point – meaning organisations need to continually review their engagement strategy to ensure it is delivering ROI.
Critically, insurers and brokers still face operational and technological challenges - and cultural resistance - as they move from a low touch model to a high engagement model: successfully tackling these challenges is the priority
This conference explores how you overcome these key challenges in order to engage your customers in a way that is efficient for you and delightful for them – building a platform for growth and driving future competitive advantage and profitability… whilst still delivering positive bottom line results.

Customers are better informed than ever before making it harder for insurers to keep and grow their profitable ones. This new type of customer expects to engage with companies in whichever way suits them and for that engagement to be consistent, irrespective of their chosen channel. None of these emerging demands are served well by the legacy policy driven systems of most established insurers.
Hitachi Solutions works with insurance companies around the world to help them migrate to new technology solutions that put the customer and agent at the heart of the enterprise. Utilising Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Hitachi’s own insurance software, users of the system have a complete 360° view of their customers, agents and other third parties and can market, sell, and service more efficiently, and cost effectively.
Your marketing, sales and service teams access the same system providing holistic information on individual customers including policy details, renewal dates, claims history, preferences, etc. enabling superior customer engagement, providing the opportunity to cross-sell and up-sell and providing your organisation with the information it needs to put the customer at the heart of everything you do. Marketers are able to build real time journey based decisioning into all digital and personal channels to drive meaningful engagement in the manner and time most suited to your customers – whether they are end customers, agents or intermediaries.
Part of the highly respected Hitachi Group, Hitachi Solutions provides IT strategy and solutions based on Microsoft Dynamics and other Microsoft technologies to some of the world’s largest organisations. With 200+ consultants in the UK and over 1000 globally, we are ideally placed to help insurance companies take advantage of the latest business solutions from Microsoft.
