The rise of new technologies is changing various aspects of our lives. From this point of view, the insurance sector represents no exception. In fact, companies are becoming aware that they can’t remain spectators of the progress underway if their intention is to maintain a central role in the world of mobility. To play a leading role, they will have to adopt innovative and specific solutions to maintain customers’ data management and control.
