Some of you might be aware of the capabilities of our Quote Intelligence suite of products – in particular the tools we provide to help insurance providers identify quote manipulation by customers. It’s an unfortunate side effect of the shift to delivering slicker online quote experiences for customers and the bad news is that it’s on the rise as some become more adept at changing certain factors to their advantage.

We recently analysed manipulation across 360 million distinct quotes from the past two years and found certain trends and insights that we shared first with the team at Insurance Post.

If you’re not familiar with it, David Kelly caught up with CBPF’s head of analytics to get the full picture.
