MANILA, PHILIPPINES – AIA Philam Life won two awards in the Digital Transformer and Information Visionary categories at the prestigious IDC Digital Transformation Awards for Fusion, its digital underwriting platform, which bested nominees across the Philippines.
“Fusion is the first AI (artificial intelligence)-powered digital underwriting platform in the industry which helps validate insurance applications in a faster, more reliable, and accurate manner. With this platform, we were able to accelerate our ability to protect more Filipinos by returning evaluation results near realtime. Fusion is a springboard for further innovations that create delightful customer experiences at the time they choose to be protected by AIA Philam Life,” shared Margarita Lopez, AIA Philam Life Chief Operations Officer.
“While we considered our customers’ digital journey with us completed last year, it was the pandemic that pushed us to further strengthen our capabilities. And with stronger digital capacity, we can provide better service in the fulfillment of our mission of racing against risk and helping more Filipinos live Healthier, Longer and Better Lives,” said Kelvin Ang, AIA Philam Life Chief Executive Officer.
Developed by AIA Philam Life, Fusion is proven to process 3,000 life insurance applications per second and 60,000 times faster than the traditional manual underwriting procedure. By transcending rule-based automation and using superior cognitive automation, the system learns patterns from analyzing a hundred years’ worth of AIA customer data to bring a century’s worth of knowledge into the present. It helps save time by according insurance underwriters more time to concentrate on complex cases, and more cost effective because there is no need to rely on external rule-based engines, and focus on the AI skills training of its workforce, building a better understanding of AIA Philam Life’s customer needs.
The Digital Transformer award is for organizations that have demonstrated success in projects where there is synergy between business and IT management disciplines, and have delivered digitally-enabled products and services over a sustained period while the Information Visionary award is for a technology program or project which has enabled discernible and measurable excellence in the organization’s ability to treat data and information as critical assets.
IDC Digital Transformation Awards is a regional program where country-level awards are first presented to organizations in the Asia Pacific. Now on its fourth year, IDC’s DX Awards honors the achievements of organizations which have successfully digitalized one or multiple areas of their business through the application of digital and disruptive technologies. The award categories and selection criteria are aligned to reflect today’s most critical business transformation areas.
