Insurers, brokers, technology companies and others continue to roll out new products and services during the COVID-19 pandemic and in many cases the new offerings specifically address issues faced by risk managers due to coronavirus-related problems and limitations.  The effort to solve problems that have arisen since March this year led to a sharp increase in the nominations for the Business Insurance Innovation Awards with an increase of almost 50% compared to the average number of submissions during the previous ten the years.
To reflect the increase in nominations, we have increased the number of winners to 12 from 10.
Among the technology and data solutions for risk management problems that arose from or were accentuated by pandemics. The winner list also contains solutions to a number of other problems, ranging from international insurance program management to cyber risks to damaged worker communication.
