NEW YORK -According to research by Rebus iS, 88% of US insurers think that information technology will become more important in driving efficiencies and cost reductions in future. Some 55% of respondents stated that IT is currently playing an “important” role in driving efficiencies and cost reductions, and 43% said that it was “essential” to business efficiency.
