Celent announces its Model Insurer Award winners for 2015 at its annual Innovation & Insight Day at Carnegie Hall. The awards, now in its ninth year, celebrated 15 examples of effective technology usage in insurance.

The vision for Celent's Model Insurer Awards is to spotlight best practices in the use of technology in insurance in areas such as policy administration, IT management, claims, and distribution. Nominations were accepted throughout the fall of 2014, and the Celent insurance team selected the winners based on the best practices used and business benefits provided.

LV= was honored as the overall Model Insurer of the Year, with 14 other insurers being recognized as Model Insurers in five categories, some with an overall category winner.

"Celent evaluated insurance technology initiatives according to five major themes being seen and researched today," says Karen Monks, an analyst with Celent's Insurance practice. "Insurers are investing in technology that meets their digital agendas, expands their use of data, and modernizes their back office. Additionally, Celent sees several insurers embracing innovation and forsaking established practices to pursue new ideas."
