overview: Future-proof and efficient: SAP for the insurance industry

SAP provides a wide range of modules for the insurance industry. With these modules, insurers can design and automate their processes more efficiently in the areas of payments and treasury, marketing, sales, and inventory management, among others.

Overview: SAP solutions in focus

Consolidation and efficient control of all tasks and expenditures in the procurement process are at the top of the priority list for most purchasing organizations. In a digitized and automated procurement process, the global management of suppliers, purchases, approvals, payments and compliance with regulations is simple and reliable.

SAP offers several comprehensive solutions with various extensions for this purpose:

  • The SAP Ariba Cloud procurement platform and Ariba Network.
  • S/4HANA Sourcing & Procurement, as an integral part of S/4HANA
  • SAP Fieldglass as a vendor management system (VMS) specifically for service purchasing
  • SAP Concur as a cloud-based solution for travel management and purchasing

Which cross-company processes seamlessly integrate procurement digitally into the value chain, and thus increase the ROI of digital transformation, remains one of the central questions that companies must ask themselves.

The insurance market is changing permanently with the digital transformation. The expectations and requirements of customers must be placed at the center of all considerations. The SAP CX solution combines marketing, e-commerce, sales and service and helps you to create an individual and exceptional experience for your customers.

Current financial processes and architectures are increasingly causing problems for CFOs. In particular, complex, heterogeneous system architectures in which many different applications and data models are used are reaching their limits. They can no longer meet the requirements in terms of availability, flexibility and level of detail.

In order to keep pace with developments, there are three fields of action: Processes, financial architecture and software landscape. SAP S/4HANA enables the processing and analysis of large volumes of data and provides the basis for end-to-end processes. In addition, analytics give you the transparency you need to make business decisions and continuous improvements.

The emergence of many alternative payment methods presents many an insurance company with a major task: the digitization of payment processes. The AP Financial Services Collections and Disbursements (SAP FS-CD) module ensures, among other things, fluid transaction processes, through which all collections and disbursements are not only processed cost-effectively and quickly, but also automated to a high degree.

The SAP solution portfolio can be used to map end-to-end processes in sales. Most insurance companies are aware of this. Frequently, therefore, they tend to ask questions such as:

  • which SAP solution is best suited for which field of application?, or
  • is the implementation effort in reasonable proportion to the expected benefit?

Regardless of whether you want to use the widely used FS-ICM or the cloud-based SAP Commissions, sales success correlates directly with goal-oriented management and compensation. Success factors such as fair commission models or attractive products are just as relevant here as a flexible and custom-fit IT system for managing different sales channels. That is why, in our view, the question of the “right and precisely fitting” solution for each company must be answered with priority.
