CodeEast & WTW collaborate to enable MGAs and Carriers to digitize Workers' Compensation Insurance
Chicago, 15th September 2022 — WTW and CodeEast today announced they are collaborating to enable MGAs and Carriers to rapidly implement a digital platform for workers' compensation insurance. CodeEast, a market-leading insurance software systems provider, has revealed that their ONEview platform now includes functionality that is tailored for U.S. workers' compensation insurance. This includes a workers’ compensation ratings component delivered through Radar Live, WTW’s cutting-edge price delivery and decision engine platform.
The collaboration between CodeEast and WTW is coming at a critical time for the insurance industry. The workers' compensation market in the USA is valued at approximately $43 billion in gross written premium (GWP) per year. It is undergoing a radical transformation due to the emergence of intelligent devices, improved work safety practices and accelerated access to smart data services. For MGAs and Carriers to succeed in this new world, they need digital platforms that enable profitable underwriting decisions and lower operating costs delivered by end-to-end digital automation.
