If you’re not familiar with ForMotiv, we’re a behavioral science platform purpose-built for legacy carriers and InsurTech companies alike to accurately predict user intent, in real-time. ForMotiv collects unique behavioral features such as mouse movements, hesitation, copy/paste, corrections, keystrokes, time spent, and nearly 200 additional features, resulting in 10,000s of raw digital behavioral data points per application. The solution works by reading this “digital body language” and predicting, in real-time, end-user intent or motivation. Carriers are using ForMotiv’s dataset and platform to understand if applicants are confused, frustrated, high-intent purchases or window shoppers, high-risk or fraudulent, likely to file a claim, and much much more. In addition, ForMotiv’s real-time intent engine and Smart App system enable carriers to identify important “micro-moments” and intuitively adapt the experience to drive more profitable conversions while triaging risky applications.
