Traditionally, commercial insurance carriers evaluate and price for insurable risks based on historical loss data and probability of future losses. Emerging technology, such as Internet-of-Things connected devices, creates an opportunity for businesses to fundamentally change their risk profile by proactively engineering out risk and through continuous monitoring of perils that could lead to insurance claims but are preventable if remedied in time. Through adoption of technology businesses can reduce their risk-related expenses while also improving operating expenses, employee retention, and customer satisfaction.

Fewer claims is a win-win for insurers and their customers. Insurance carriers and their broker partners are well positioned to assist commercial insurance customers in lowering risk-related expenses. Although IoT adoption is still immature in commercial lines, early-stage experiments conducted by insurers like The Hartford are starting to shed light on how IoT and preventative technology services can be offered by insurers to their customers for mutual benefit.
