Prudential partners with EvolutionIQ to help more people recover and return to work

AI-powered claims guidance platform blends human touch with advanced technology for more meaningful customer impact

Newark, N.J., September 15, 2023 – Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE: PRU) today announced a new strategic partnership with EvolutionIQ, a technology company with an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven platform that will enhance Prudential’s disability claims ecosystem.

With AI playing an increasingly crucial role in businesses today, the integration of this platform into Prudential’s claims process augments the important work of the company’s disability claims examiners. EvolutionIQ uses proprietary, next-generation machine learning to provide specialized insights. 

EvolutionIQ’s rich, data-driven guidance will allow Prudential’s examiners to manage each short- and long-term disability claim to its optimal outcome, by enabling examiners to focus on claims where their expertise is most required.  This will help examiners expedite the claims process and eliminate manual work to spend more time helping disability claimants put their lives back on the recovery track faster. 

“Our partnership with EvolutionIQ drives greater and more meaningful customer impact by blending human touch with advanced technology,” said Carolynn Smith, head of Group Insurance Operations for Prudential. “Both companies are united by our sense of shared purpose, which makes this partnership even more exciting because it allows us to capitalize on the potential to deliver additional value across our entire business system.”

The partnership follows Prudential’s initial deployment and extensive evaluation of EvolutionIQ’s platform and implementation services. It includes a multi-year license agreement to all of EvolutionIQ’s Group Disability products.

“We’re excited to be a central part of Prudential’s claims excellence strategy,” said Michael Saltzman, co-Founder and co-CEO of EvolutionIQ. “Joining forces with Prudential is a win-win for both companies and we’re thrilled to be partnering with a market leader in improving the claim experience to get more sick and injured people back to work sooner.”
