About the customer
The company holds a prominent position as a leading insurance provider in the Italian market. With an extensive network of thousands of agencies spread across the territory, it offers a diverse portfolio of insurance and financial solutions to millions of policyholders.
The company’s customer base was experiencing a poor claims experience when interacting with the company. As a result, there was a growing sense of mistrust regarding the timeliness and effectiveness of the settlement process. Insufficient guidance and a lack of empathy were evident in the support provided to customers when filing a claim.
Furthermore, the company’s partner distributors were expending a significant amount of resources on time-consuming and unproductive activities, lacking the capability to effectively monitor their actions due to the absence of comprehensive dashboards.
Consequently, the company opted to address these issues by focusing on the following initiatives:
Establish an omnichannel claims management approach, enabling customers to handle their claims through their preferred traditional and digital channels.
Enhance the claims customer experience, assisting users during the accident reporting phase to simplify the assessment procedures.
Improve customer satisfaction, supporting policyholders in effectively managing their claims, a critical phase in the customer-company relationship.
Enhance brand perception, delivering an integrated and innovative service that encompasses the entire claims process, thereby adding value to the user.
Build value-added collaboration streams with partner distributors, providing real-time monitoring dashboards to establish a shared customer support role;
Streamline time and costs associated with claims management, improving efficiency to expedite processes and reduce the time investment required for claims administration.
The company relied on Mia-Platform to create its own Smart Claims Platform on which to integrate its existing systems or third-party systems to address the claims settlement processes that guarantee the objectives mentioned above.
Leveraging a microservices architecture powered by Kubernetes, the platform operates as a cloud-native integration environment for the whole claims management process. It facilitates the development of intelligent workflows by seamlessly integrating legacy, core, and third-party systems. This integration is made possible through Mia-Platform Fast Data, which enables comprehensive management of claims data, encompassing input collection, preparation, and analysis. Additionally, Mia-Platform Flow Manager allows for the orchestration and evolution of these workflows in a low-code manner.
How it works
The creation of the company Smart Claims Platform involved various essential aspects:
Providing customers with an instant communication facility either during or after an accident;
Efficiently collecting and integrating digital photos at any stage of the claims adjustment process;
Coordinating a personalized notification and tracking system that seamlessly operates across multiple communication channels;
Instantly identifying and suggesting nearby support services to assist the customer in real-time;
Initiating, guiding, and concluding the settlement process through a customized, secure, and well-regulated workflow.
With the Smart Claims Platform, the company can now digitally create and orchestrate all phases of the claims management process, from FNOL to damage assessment and compensation. This allows the entire process to be configured using a composable approach, enabling the interaction of heterogeneous services and systems, simplifying integration, and reducing costs and implementation times
