Each year SMA recognizes several insurers and solution providers with the prestigious SMA Innovation in Action Awards for demonstrating real progress in deploying next-generation technology for advantage. Winners were recently announced at the 2013 SMA Summit: INNOVATE for ADVANTAGE in Boston.

The 2013 SMA Innovation in Action Award winners in the insurer category are:

  • Amica Mutual Insurance Company
  • Great American Insurance Group
  • Oregon Mutual Insurance
  • Western & Southern Financial Group

The 2013 SMA Innovation in Action Award winner in the solution provider category is: Xpertdoc

The quantity and quality of submissions were again remarkably impressive, and you can sense the significant progress that is being made among insurers by the content of the innovation and transformation stories as well as the significantly higher number of nominations this year. The insurance industry is not sitting idly by and watching the innovation in other industries. Insurers are engaged and active – and they are finding very creative ways to energize their organizations, transform their approaches to products and services, and differentiate themselves. Next generation technologies are fueling the progress, and insurers are capitalizing on the opportunities. The resulting innovation is impacting the industry in many dimensions!

SMA launched the SMA Innovation in Action Awards program to inspire, share, and recognize solutions that enable an insurance company to move beyond modernizing and optimizing to real innovation and transformation, ultimately creating differentiation and competitive advantage. The program spotlights both insurers and solution providers that have successfully implemented solutions that best leverage next generation technologies such as mobile, analytics & big data, social, cloud, collaboration, or telematics, or that reflect the spirit of innovation that is taking place.
