What is the DDIL?
The MAXIS Data & Digital Innovation lab was launched in March 2018 and is a cross-functional team exploring the possibilities for data and digital innovation within global employee benefits (EB) and insurance. We bring together a group of diverse people and, using an agile approach, develop the products and solutions of the future for our network partners and clients.
Who are we?
The core group includes six people from internal teams at MAXIS GBN, bringing together data science and analytics, reinsurance, product development, UX design and digital marketing expertise. We work with other internal and external partners – software developers, data platforms, local insurers, employee benefits consultants and more.
Our goal is to help shape the future by facilitating the brilliant ideas that come from all areas of the business and, leveraging our own expertise, deliver collaborative, creative solutions.
1. Create added value for our network partners and clients and become their preferred, easy-to-work-with global benefits network
2. Explore and build new products for the future of work and EB
3. Improve our operational efficiency, including helping local insurers with digital transformation
We create new tools, improve existing solutions and gather the latest data and digital insights to ensure that we’re not just well-placed to tackle the immediate challenges of our business and that of our clients, but also in prime position to shape the future.
What are our principles?
