About this event

What is gamification?

Gamification involves the use of game techniques and elements to influence the behaviors of individuals. The use cases are many and diverse, but most involve prizes and points, competition and/or teamwork and scorekeeping to motivate people to meet specific goals.

Why is gamification important to insurance?

Gamification is a useful practice to engage customers, establish or strengthen brands, educate and train customers and staff, and motivate people to act. Gamification has many customer facing applications, including encouraging customer engagement and improving insurers' relationships with their customers. In addition, it can facilitate customized risk assessment and pricing, and, internally, help insurers encourage boosting sales and service performance.
