Our prediction: smartphones will revolutionise the insurance business

In 2012, PTOLEMUS was forecasting that smartphones would be used for Usage-based Insurance (UBI), also called insurance telematics.

Report on how smartphones revolutionise the auto insurance industry

Today we predict that smartphones will completely revolutionise the business of insurance and go far beyond UBI.

Of course this is about digital insurance. But for policyholders, mobile insurance is the actual translation of digital insurance!

  • Apps are not only used for UBI but dozens of other use cases such as policy management, CRM, claims management, underwriting, etc.
  • Insurance is moving from a standard contract-based purchase to an on-demand, transaction-based service
  • Data science is becoming an essential competitive tool for usage-based, context-aware personalised coverage

Apps will radically transform insurance: they will impact customer relationship, competition, internal processes and the skills required to handle new technologies. 

Why then has mobile insurance only reached only 50 million drivers, a fraction of the mobile banking market? And why are most insurers still struggling to do real business with apps and obtain good user ratings?

Well, insurers have been focused on 'digital insurance' and 'insurtech'! But what customers are seeing is often a mediocre smartphone app that cannot do anything for them...
