MetLife: The Making of a Digital Insurer
Tuesday, October 4, 10:00 AM – 10:40 AM, InterContinental San Francisco Hotel, InterContinental Ballroom A-B
“Digital Transformation” has become a vital strategic imperative for insurers in response to rampant policyholder and agent dissatisfaction in the industry. However, the path to effortless, efficient digital experiences is fraught with challenges related not just to technology, but also process, people, and culture. As a result, it’s not enough to simply hand off digital initiatives to the CIO or CMO. The entire organization and its leadership must rethink the way they do business with its customers. Leading innovators are making every touchpoint — whether B2C or B2B — more personalized, predictive and repeatable. Learn how MetLife does it effectively at scale.
