Doug Grant has been helping the insurance industry in Canada – individual companies and cross-industry groups in both P&C and Life – make effective use of technology for many years.
The progress of technology from the first green screens to smart phones, apps, social and IoT has been a fascinating journey. Connecting businesses in the supply chain with EDI and portals has improved efficiencies and service times; the next wave of APIs, platforms and micro-services will enhance connectivity; AI, Blockchain, Voice and other emerging technologies promise better customer service.
The web took digital connectivity to the customer. Social brought new functions, triggering the current focus on self-service, customer experience and engagement; paradoxically both enhancing loyalty and increasing freedom of choice.
Doug is a founding partner of Insurance-Canada.ca, a leading Canadian Insurance resource centre for consumers and insurance professionals alike. He helps organize and host Insurance-Canada.ca's annual conference and other industry events.
