The challenges of inflation have significantly impacted our nation, and the insurance industry is no exception. Despite hopeful projections that inflation will be regulated by the end of 2024, the current situation is becoming increasingly expensive for businesses, particularly insurance organizations. Inflation, coupled with supply chain issues, has resulted in a substantial rise in costs, especially in the form of claims spending. Estimates suggest that underlying inflation contributed around 45 to 50% of the total increase in claims spending by the end of 2021, and this trend has persisted through 2022 and into 2023.
However, it’s not just costs that have been affected; workloads within the insurance industry have also been swelling, leading to higher rates of burnout among employees. This combination of factors poses a significant risk to both the insurance workforce and the financial bottom line of organizations. In order to navigate these challenges, insurers need to effectively combat the rising workloads and costs they are facing—and that’s where automating premium payments can help.
