Vinod joins me in a conversation about the growing impact wearable technology has on consumer expectations within the life insurance industry. He shares his insights and findings from a recently published report that found 85% of adults would improve their health and fitness habits for lower monthly life insurance premiums.
Vinod talks about the role customer engagement plays and how gamification has become an incentive for consumers to live healthier lifestyles. We also discuss the insurance industry's shift to tailoring coverage offerings to fit individual insurance and wellness needs, along with the importance of creating digital experiences that consumers of today and the future will expect.
