These mobility solutions encompass mobile software applications, consulting and management services
CSC has announced new offerings to bring mobility benefits to the insurance process lifecycle. These mobility solutions encompass mobile software applications, consulting and management services to help insurers plan, build and manage their wireless communications roadmaps.
The company also intends to develop applications for BlackBerry smartphones. More than 60 potential applications for all mobile platforms, BlackBerry included, have been defined to help carriers expand options and reach new demographic markets in ways that benefit both agents and consumers.
One application, designed for clients of CSC’s policy administration system, enables their customers to upload accident scene photos for faster claims handling. Another provides insurance executives with access to analytical dashboards displaying critical business information.
CSC will collaborate with its client communities to prioritise application development and will employ knowledge and experience gained from delivering mobility solutions in other industries, claims the company.
Jim Cook, president of CSC’s Business Solutions and Services organization, said: Mobile devices are the next big platform challenge for the insurance industry. CSC is uniquely positioned to lead carriers through this transition because of our credentials in other verticals and our proven track record of helping financial services companies adopt and leverage new platforms.
