Accenture provides a wide range of services that help P&C insurers improve their multi-channel distribution capabilities and deliver exceptional customer and agent experiences.
The P&C insurance landscape is changing—undeniably and fundamentally—as digital channels such as the Internet, mobile and social media jockey for dominance against the traditional agent and broker channels.

Deploy mobility for consumers and the sales force.
Integrate digital marketing, building a deeper understanding of customers and matching them with relevant products and services.
