EXL Cyber Underwriting Workbench

Cyber insurance underwriters often struggle with outdated processes and platforms. This can raise multiple challenges, including:

  • Complex, labour-intensive processes: Manual data extraction and validation while rating and quoting policies increases submission processing time, cost, and complexity due to inconsistent document types and sources.
  • Incorrect pricing due to limited data availability:Underwriters often lack of access to external loss history data while analyzing cyber risk profiles, leading to inaccurate prices for cyber insurance premiums and coverage loss limits.
  • Poor user experience: Excessive time spent on menial tasks and sorting through disorganized structures can make cyber underwriting a frustrating experience.
  • Lack of a unified platform: Underwriting platforms for the cyber market often focus on solving individual problems. However, this means underwriters are unable to get a holistic view that encompasses an end-to-end workflow solution from quote to bind that efficiently manages submissions, documents, and data.

With an integrated, digitized platform that simplifies and accelerates the quote to bind process for underwriters by collating all data and processing needs into one intuitive platform, EXL’s cyber workbench transforms the underwriting process using embedded analytics. The end result is an underwriting platform that’s logical, organized, and intuitive.
