Munich Re relies on Starmind

First published by Munich Re, one of the world's leading reinsurers, works together with Starmind to engage and cultivate the expertise of the risk management leader's several thousand employees in a new application called OneMind.

Knowing who to ask a question in a large, international organization can be difficult. Starmind takes away that difficulty by applying self-learning algorithms based on neuroscientific principles to build a company's "corporate brain". This enables Munich Re's employees to immediately identify and connect with the best internal expert for almost any query and to access internal knowledge quickly and efficiently. It helps Munich Re to further expand its base for excellent client service and best in class risk transfer solutions.

Positive results from OneMind so far:

  • 93% of all questions asked through OneMind are answered, uncovering previously undocumented employee knowledge
  • About 50% of all questions asked through One Mind are answered within 2 hours or less
  • All knowledge provided by employees in OneMind is stored in the system and made permanently available to all users worldwide. Redundancies are reduced and efficiency gains are achieved

Using Starmind technology is part of Munich Re's overall digital strategy. "One key goal of Munich Re's Knowledge Management has always been to provide our employees with all the knowledge and expertise they need to constantly improve our underwriting, and to push the boundaries of insurability with innovative products," said Fredrik Theis, Head of Knowledge Management Underwriting at Munich Re. "With OneMind we have taken this to the next level. It links our entire employee knowledgebase through the cloud, thus prompting the easy and effective cross team collaboration we need to achieve our goal."

"Munich Re is the world leader in risk management and unites some of the greatest minds in that field," says Pascal Kaufmann, Founder of Starmind. "In a world of digitalization and automation technology becomes a commodity. The human factor, such as uniting the talents within Munich Re, becomes more crucial and a true differentiating factor across the entire industry."

What is a corporate wiki?

A corporate wiki, also known as an enterprise wiki, is a knowledge management system that provides a central location where your company can collect, capture, and update organizational knowledge.

As an internet user, the chances are high that you’ve used Wikipedia to find and acquire information and knowledge. Corporate wikis are comparable because they use similar technology and processes for people to collaborate and share their knowledge. The main difference is that corporate wikis are confined to the people within your organization.

Wikis have been a favored solution for knowledge management because every employee has the ability to read, edit, and contribute new content and knowledge. Plus, they're relatively easy to use. If employees can create a word doc, they’ll have no issue contributing to a wiki. But, if you’ve already used a corporate wiki before, you’re probably familiar with the challenges they can bring and are ready for a more effective way to manage knowledge.
