Aon eSolutions survey reveals top 10 global risk technology influencers

CHICAGO, March 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Aon eSolutions, the technology solutions business of Aon Corporation (NYSE: AON), today released the results of its 2012 Global Risk Technology Survey, which gathered information on how leading organizations view and use risk technology. The report offers a deeper understanding of how the use of risk technology has an impact on an organization's risk and data management and total cost of risk.

The number one benefit and driving force behind the use of risk technology is accurate and reliable data, according to the survey of more than 400 risk professionals from 57 countries representing a broad range of industries. The result, which was similar to the last survey conducted in 2009, indicates that organizations use risk management information systems, commonly known as RMIS, to manage business operations and generate accurate financial information.

Aon Global Risk Technology Survey Top 10 Benefits of Technology

  1. Accuracy and reliability of data
  2. Automation of processes
  3. Data consolidation and management
  4. Management reporting improvements
  5. Risk management process improvement
  6. Ease of access to data from one location
  7. Communications improvement
  8. Increased awareness
  9. Total cost of risk reduction/management
  10. Auditability

The survey also revealed compliance as an emerging benefit of using risk management tools.

"Compliance is a relatively new topic in the risk management industry, and as more companies explore cloud offerings to store and report on their organizational data, compliance may well make an appearance in the top ten in our next survey," says Kathy Burns, CEO of Aon eSolutions.

The report also reveals a key trend: More organizations are now closely tracking return on investment for risk technology tools. For example, more than 25 percent of respondents said they expect to save up to $50,000 per year from using risk/insurance and claims technology.

"Companies are actively tracking the ROI for risk technology investments. This indicates the technology is becoming critical in the way organizations do business and is seen as an added value in reducing TCOR," says Burns.

Notably absent from the top 10 this year were claims management and control and transparency. Historically, claims management has been the primary rationale for implementing risk technology; however, today RMIS are used to manage much more than workers' compensation claims reporting. Meanwhile, control and transparency may have dropped off the 2012 survey as risk management departments have become more visible to boards of directors and CFOs, who look to these departments to inform and guide the organization in all aspects of risk.

Additional Aon insurance and industry specialists provided supporting analysis and helped with the interpretation of findings.
