The Insurance Nexus Awards represent a key event in the insurance industry recognizing the achievements that are moving us forward. The award category submissions in areas such as claims, customer, broker, product, business transformation and innovation emphasize the importance of “new normal” capabilities across digital, data and core in everything that is happening today and will happen in the 2020’s. All of the excellent work done by the firms that we judged show how each is taking on the traditional challenge of selling more, managing risk better, and costing less in new waysMitch Wein, Senior Vice President of Research and Consulting, Novarica

In the pursuit of delivering customer-first products with a seamless experience from purchase to claims, each carrier must first become a customer-centric organization. To recognize excellence and innovation at each stage of this process, we have focused categories for product development, customer service, operational transformation and claims – and aim to celebrate both the executives leading the change, and the teams on the front line every day executing on customer strategy.
Recognizes the team in a carrier tasked with effectively handling claims to get claims resolved as soon as possible. We are looking for the team who go above and beyond to make the claims process seamless for customer and carrier alike.
Recognizes the team on the front lines of customer service. We’re looking for customer heroes who go above and beyond whilst spending their day helping customers through traumatic times, explaining confusing insurance policies and compensating for frustrating or inefficient processes.
