CHICAGO (November 16, 2022) – Convr AI, the leading artificial intelligence (AI) company serving commercial insurance organizations, has once again delivered strong return on investment for a client—this time for Crum & Forster—the 200 year-old insurance solutions provider.

The AI-infused Convr Command Center has enabled Crum & Forster’s Surplus & Specialty Lines (S&S) Division to:

  • Cut submission processing time by 50%
  • Redeploy 40% of contractors to higher-value roles
  • Redeploy 20% of operations employees to revenue-generating roles
  • Support an ambitious five-year growth strategy

In 2021, Crum & Forster’s S&S Division kicked off a plan to double its top-line underwriting performance. Lauren Dieterich, senior vice president, head of operations and digital for Crum & Forster’s S&S Division, recognized that to achieve that goal, her team needed to streamline a manual, labor-intensive submission intake process.

“In S&S, we’re dependent on a variety of submission materials. I was looking for a vendor who could process more than just ACORDs and transform our entire underwriting process,” Dieterich said. “I wanted a vendor who could grow with us as we consume ever-increasing data.”

Dieterich found what she was looking for in Convr’s AI-infused commercial underwriting platform d3 IntakeTM, enabling a more efficient and holistic process for new business submission intake.

With d3 Intake, Crum & Forster’s S&S Division has realized:

  • Faster Quotes. d3 Intake eliminates most of the data entry required to clear and prepare an underwriting file, which transforms both the underwriting and customer experience.
  • Streamlined submission intake process. By using d3 Intake’s Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) capabilities, Crum & Forster automatically ingests and organizes information from both structured and unstructured documents.
  • Leverages data for future insights. d3 Intake enables Crum & Forster to collect, analyze and retain the information from the application process—insights that can inform future pricing models, underwriting decisions or claims handling.
