Four IDP providers on FinTech Global’s 2023 InsurTech100 list FinTech Global, the FinTech information services provider, has released its latest InsurTech100 list, featuring the most innovative companies in the insurance industry. With Appian, Cortical.io, expert.ai and Instabase, four Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) providers have been included in this year’s InsurTech100. Richard Sachar, Director of FinTech Global, explained: “The widespread availability of generative AI capabilities has opened the doors for even greater innovation within insurance. We’re entering a new wave of digitalisation and insurance firms need to be prepared.” For Cortical.io and Instabase, it is the second year in a row that they have been included in the list. Bastiaan de Goei, Insurance Leader at Instabase, commented: “The recognition by the InsurTech100 comes on the back of significant growth in insurance for Instabase. We are grateful for the trust that all our insurance customers place in us. The enthusiasm by the wider insurance sector for, and interest in, Large Language Models is incredible. Instabase’s launch of AI Hub earlier this year now makes the most advanced AI technologies to understand, automate, analyze and action highly complex data securely not only accessible to the world’s largest carriers but also individual agents, MGAs, regional brokers and more. The initial response to AI Hub has been very encouraging. We are therefore incredibly excited to continue serving the wider insurance industry with our applied AI solutions and aim to rank again next year in the InsurTech100!”
