While digital transformation began reshaping insurance well before the pandemic, COVID-19 has underscored the urgency of accelerated innovation in the industry. Greater reliance on digital technology to support remote work, distance learning and online shopping and entertainment have only increased consumer expectations for more digitization in insurance. A recent survey of workers’ compensation professionals conducted by Lightico and Sapiens found that 75% of workers’ comp carriers are “urgently looking” or “actively looking” to digitize, with more and more seeing enhanced digital capabilities as essential to attaining a competitive edge in the post-pandemic landscape.
