AI-insurtech Cortical will help Swiss Re for digital transformation in group insurance

AI-insurtech Cortical announced a strategic alliance with Swiss Re, a global leader in reinsurance. The collaboration aims to facilitate the adoption of intelligent document processing (IDP) among group insurance carriers.

Founded in 2011 in Austria, Cortical is a pioneer for efficient artificial intelligence (AI) solutions that automate labor-intensive insurance processes like intake, submission and quoting.

Cortical’s IDP solution, SemanticPro, which has been in production at major insurance carriers for several years, will be offered to Swiss Re’s clients to accelerate the intake process and improve the quality and efficiency of quote preparation and policy comparison.

Post implementation, the solution’s intelligent extraction and classification capabilities have proven to reduce review time by up to 30%, and increase quote accuracy by 17% compared to manual processes.
