NEOS to Host Webinar on System Selection
Webinar discusses best practices insurers can use to select software
Hartford CT – December 8, 2014 – NEOS, a management consulting firm that helps insurers innovate business solutions to legacy problems, will host a webinar on system selection entitled “Hit or Miss? Selecting the Right Software” on December 9, 2014 at 12pm EST.
The webinar will discuss best practices that insurers can follow to be more effective, efficient, and successful in selecting and implementing the best solution. Steve Leigh, Managing Consultant at NEOS, will provide input on a lens-based approach to analyzing RFP responses that takes subjective opinions out of the decision process. Karen Chamberlain, Senior VP and CIO at Western and Southern Financial Group, will share her experiences of what did and did not work as well as lessons learned for selecting software.
Despite ongoing improvement among systems and service providers, and more experience among insurers, many system deployment projects struggle to deliver their expected value. Traditional system selection processes that fail to differentiate between vendors, accurately identify needs, and balance the needs of all stakeholders tend to be at the heart of this issue. At the end of the webinar, attendees will understand tactics to choose the right software.
“Anyone about to undertake a software evaluation will benefit from this webinar,” says Scott Witter, Senior Principal with NEOS, who will act as the webinar’s moderator. “Our panelists will share valuable insights and best practices of a system selection. Often, people forget how crucial the right system is to their business goals. The implications of a poor system will be felt by many and for a long time but the situation is avoidable.” As the moderator of the webinar, Scott looks forward to taking questions from the webinar attendees. “We’ve got two great panelists who can speak to all perspectives: business, technology, and executive leadership.”
This webinar is part of a series of NEOS hosted webinars focusing on a variety of topics within the financial services, insurance and information media industries. Previous webinars have addressed topics such as gaining value from closed block portfolios and leveraging processes to reduce operational risk. The webinar series includes experts from across industries to maximize value to attendees.
