Current Industry Challenges
- Inaccurate Cash Forecasts
Insurance firms are challenged by insufficient tools for handling cash visibility, leading to inaccurate forecasting. This results in unnecessary borrowing costs and reduced cash investment returns.
- Siloed Payment Systems
Insurance companies struggle to send out high volumes of insurance payments, including claim payments, in an efficient manner. This is often due to siloed and obsolete global payments systems, many of which are home-grown.
- Increased Fraud and Compliance Risk
Decentralized payment structures also lead to inconsistent payment controls and processes, creating audit and compliance red flags and elevating the risk of payment fraud.
- M&A Readiness
Many insurance companies are ill-equipped to integrate treasury and payment systems inherited through merger and acquisition activities, creating unnecessary chaos and inefficiency.
- Supporting Payments Innovation
The next generation of payments technology is upon us, with real-time payments (RTP), API connectivity to banks, SWIFT gpi, and a global mandate to move to ISO 20022 XML formats within the next 24 months. Insurance companies need to remain at the forefront of these evolving standards.
