10 ways to find out if you need a RMIS for your next insurance renewal

When it comes to gathering and consolidating insurance renewal data, risk and insurance managers can become caught up in endless amounts of spreadsheets, phone calls and emails.

In our experience, clients using spreadsheets for the commercial insurance renewal process will spend as much as 75 days collecting, checking and formatting data. The knock on effect is that insurance brokers and underwriters will often receive clients’ data later into the renewal process. This means brokers have less time to thoroughly analyse the renewal data and prepare the best possible insurance submission that will clearly explain a clients’ risk to insurance underwriters.

Client Focus: Cutting-edge renewal-data collection

Welcome to a new series of blog posts that we’re running called "client focus." Our goal is to recognize what clients have been doing with Aon RiskConsole, the justification for their investment in risk management information software, and the results they've seen from turning risk and insurance data into insights.

In this, our first post in the series, we focus on the Mosaic Company. Mosaic was featured in a previous issue of Aon 360 magazine and is a great example of how a company can use Aon RiskConsole to improve the renewal-data collection process and, as a result, generate significant cost and time savings.

Unifying_data_RMISIf you’re anything like me, you’ll enjoy having everything in one place. And, when I speak with clients they often tell me that having all their risk and insurance data in one place is the biggest benefit of using our risk management information system. 

So, in this blog post I wanted to highlight some of the key advantages that unifying all your risk and insurance data in one system can have, rather than using a variety of databases and spreadsheets.
