Nominations open for 2018 Insurance Nexus Canadian Awards

The insurance industry is entering an age of disruption and digital transformation. Bespoke products and personalized outreach will soon be the new norm, and insurance carriers will see pivotal changes powered by AI solutions.

With new technologies enabling both operational efficiency and a superior customer experience, from artificial intelligence to drones and mobile customer communication methods, we are proud to announce that nominations have opened in 2018 Insurance Nexus Canadian Awards.

These awards aim to celebrate the carriers, individuals and technology partners who are successfully driving the implementation of advanced analytics and AI, as well as to inspire new innovations in insurance.

“The Insurance Nexus Canadian Awards celebrate innovation and technology adoption which are the most critical components of change, transformation, progress and ultimately, better outcomes for all stakeholders,” said Stephen Applebaum, Managing Partner of the Insurance Solutions Group. “The engagement we’ve received on the awards testifies to the critical nature of innovation, partnerships and technology-adoption in the Canadian insurance ecosystem.”

The awards are divided into two categories: ‘Canadian Insurance Carrier of the Year’ (acknowledges the insurance carrier who has made the biggest advances in implementing analytics and AI within their business) and ‘Canadian Insurance Innovator of the Year’ (given to the stand-out innovation partner of 2018). Previous awards winners include The Co-operators, Crawford & Company and Aviva Canada, the latter winning Insurance Carrier of the Year in 2017 for their work on embedding machine learning and AI in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for real-time decision support. Initiatives that benefit both customer and insurer such as this are prime examples of the type of innovation the awards are designed to celebrate.

Nominations for the awards are open and can be made here:, closing August 24th. The Finalists will be revealed on September 5th and the winners announced onsite at the Insurance AI Canada Summit (September 25-26, Toronto). The 2018 Insurance Nexus Canadian Awards are being held in concert with the Insurance Analytics Canada Summit 2018, Canada’s largest and foremost insurance analytics conference.
