Claims Apprentice 2019: Episode 5 - Tech and Innovation

With Discovery taking a two-one advantage following the Talent Recruitment challenge, the apprentices now move onto their fourth and final task in their respective teams.

In the fifth episode of The Claims Apprentice, Nick Thomas, sponsor Kennedys’ own Alan Sugar, explains how digitalisation is impacting all areas of insurance, and that claims has not been forgotten in this technological push.

With this in mind Team Fortitudo and Team Discovery will have a fortnight to devise and then fine tune an innovative app to help claims managers in their day-to-day jobs.

Using Kennedys’ own Klaim app platform, the apprentices will have to map out their designs and ideas before the law firm’s prototyping team in India get to work on bringing their visions to life.

Richard West, partner, Kennedys and Karim Derrick, head of research and development, Kennedys, are on hand to explain how Klaim has evolved from being a virtual lawyer, to offering clients a broader toolkit; and advise them on their own ideas.

So will Team Fortitudo consisting of Laura Eccles (Ecclesiastical), Simerjit Kaur (Allianz Insurance) and Alex Riley (Zurich) equalise ahead of the final one-to-one interviews?

Or will Team Discovery made up of Dominic Sawkiw (RSA), Tosin Omosebi (QBE) and Verity Ross (Zurich) make it a hat-trick of victories?

Who will convince the judges that their cost savings are realistic?

Who will wow the panel with their process and design?

Watch now to find out.
