Chief Executive Officer of EVOLUTICS, Miller Kingsley said that the business is geared towards solving the problems facing the insurance sector based on his over 16 years of experience in the industry and is designed to help insurance companies tailor their services to the needs of the customers.
According to Kingsley,the business was formed in a bid to solve some of those problems that we have faced while in the industry, which includes issues that hamper the scalability of insurance in Nigeria and what is very clear to everyone in the industry right now is that the future of insurance in Africa generally would come from the retail segment, although this segment is very transactional.
“Hence, in order to achieve significant growth in this segment, we will have to rely on technology. The Insurance Industry in Africa is still very untapped, with lots of potential for growth and to drive the growth, we think that Insurers should make data-driven decisions and we think that we have the software to support them on this. Insurance as a sector, can elevate Africa out of poverty,” Miller concluded.
