Gruber to Lead Big-Data Panel at PALS

LAS VEGAS – Organizers of the 2015 P&A Leadership Summit have announced the addition of Kristen Gruber, president of Dealers Assurance Company (DAC), who will lead a panel discussion at the event, which will be held Sept. 9–10 at Paris Las Vegas.

“Kristen Gruber recognizes the proliferation and aggregation of data in the providers and administrators segment as an opportunity to change and improve the way we do business,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom and P&A magazines. “Our attendees and the industry at large should listen closely.”

Gruber’s panel will be comprised of industry professionals who are using technology to improve their understanding of historical loss data. They will describe the tools they use to quickly visualize and identify trends and loss drivers and explain how they improve underwriting and lead to better decision making.

“This is a must-attend session for anyone interested in getting real value from your data,” Gruber said. “Contract administration systems are a big investment for many administrators, and the return on this investment can be amplified by a company’s ability to extract meaning from the data captured.”

Registration is now open for the P&A Leadership Summit. Attendees who register by Aug. 7 will enjoy a $100 early-bird discount. More information, including additional speakers and travel, is available at the event’s website.
