VR Enhances Claims Adjuster Training

Virtual Reality training has become a best practice at Farmers Insurance Exchange. It claims adjusters are being exposed to more scenarios and learning how to do their jobs faster with the help of VR.

In 2018, Farmers Insurance Exchange started using virtual reality to train claims adjusters. It proved successful at speeding up employee training, and a more advanced approach is being piloted and focuses on identifying and assessing claims.

In the past, novice claims adjusters learned by travelling with an experienced adjuster. Knowledge was gained with field experience and time.  Virtual Reality training accelerates that process.

Farmers Insurance Exchange states that it would take years to go through what their staff is able to do with virtual reality.
