Contribution to Legal Tech
Her background in Design and Technology enables Wendy and her team to support ARAG in the transition process towards becoming a Smart Insurer. Combining her Design skills and the opportunities that Legaltech offers, she develops new services and novel ways of customer interactions.
Over the span of two years, Wendy initiated 15 experiments and 5 pilot projects with (Legal) tech startups. These experiments and projects bridged the gap between the corporate organization and start-ups and introduced 600+ legal experts to new technologies such as document automation, chatbots and speech recognition software.
In the past year she built up ARAG’s expertise and knowledge on decision tree software as a means to democratize legal knowledge. This enables ARAG to offer ever more people access to legal support through online self-service products.
