The price of claims management software has increased because of rising demand; however, price growth has been restrained by falling input costs and high competition

Claims management software has a buyer power score of 4.1 out of 5. According to IBISWorld analyst Cameron Roark, this score reflects strong negotiating power stemming from limited price growth and limited supply chain risk. However, moderate switching costs hurt buyer negotiation power.

Buyers benefit from the limited price growth of claims management software. Although demand for claims management software is rising due to the increasing number of Americans that are becoming eligible for a wide range of insurance coverage, the high level of competition and decline of purchase costs keep the price of claims management software in check, says Roark. Major players in this market include Hewlett-Packard Development Company LP, International Business Machines Corporation and Oracle. Furthermore, falling input costs have contributed to rising profit margins, which have in turn led to less financial risk for the average claims management software supplier. Buyers benefit from limited risks because it ensures the steady supply of claims management software from price hikes and bankruptcy.
However, not all factors are in the buyer's favor. Buyers face moderate switching costs because many vendors can integrate their existing infrastructure with the claims management software, which can be timely and costly to remove or replace. The downtime in between switching vendors can also make it difficult to manage claims operations, which can lead to even higher costs. Consequently, buyer negotiation power is slightly hurt because once buyers commit to a vendor, they run the risk of incurring additional costs should they look to switch suppliers.
