However, when chatbot interactions are mechanical, non-conversational or inferior to human-based conversations, the initiative can lead to a loss of business. Therefore, organizations need to carefully plan and execute these systems to overcome strategic and tactical challenges.

To help insurers create a successful chatbot implementation, we’ve worked to decode the anatomy of a chatbot, based on an assessment of roughly 100 existing systems used around the world today, 20 of which are offered by businesses in Asia Pacific. We focused in particular on the best chatbots in the insurance industry, including those from Lemonade, Trōv, Next and LeO.

This report presents three pillars of an effective chatbot – communication, comprehension and collaboration – and illustrates how chatbots should excel in these areas. We also discuss the potential impact and use cases of chatbots for various lines of business in the insurance industry.
