23/04/20142 2009 Survey demographics Copyright Watertrace Management Consulting. All rights reserved Quantitative and Qualitative analysis was conducted; 32 market firms were represented Areas of interest Commitment to ePlacing support Strategy and process Value and benefits Leadership Drivers of the change Progress blocks
23/04/20143 ePlacing is becoming the norm...? Copyright Watertrace Management Consulting. All rights reserved Tool use is up for both Insurance and Reinsurance. Is this sufficient evidence to suggest its the norm…..? Less than 50% of underwriters agree that ePlacing will become the norm. Is this an initiative that only the brokers want? Is there nothing in it for underwriters? ePlacing is not the norm today, and tomorrow?…
23/04/20144 The business case for ePlacing is widely accepted...? Copyright Watertrace Management Consulting. All rights reserved Brokers perceived greater benefits from ePlacing support use than underwriters; Fewer than 40% of underwriters note considerable benefit at any stage; The business case is questionable from an underwriting perspective. Rather than being accepted, how do we define the business case?
23/04/20145 Widespread agreement that ePlacing is the panacea...? Copyright Watertrace Management Consulting. All rights reserved Both brokers and underwriters believe the benefits of ePlacing support will be significant in the future: 81% of brokers and 49% of underwriters see significant future benefit for their firm BUT, what seismic change will need to occur to make this happen when benefits are limited at present? Is the market capable / ready for a change? Is it merely wishful thinking that the future will be better?
