Transforming Insurance Operations with Mia-Platform: Near Real-Time Agency Notifications

A global leader in the insurance sector, has partnered with Mia-Platform to simplify and streamline business relationships with its network of agents and sub-agents through the group’s agency portal. The direct integration of the company’s core systems with the portal used to be complex and time-consuming. This led to a poor agent experience when interacting with the company and an inability to promptly carry out value-added activities to engage with the policyholder base. Thanks to Mia-Platform Fast Data, the company can now aggregate data in an intermediate layer, send notifications in near real-time to the whole agency network, and significantly reduce the Millions of Instructions Per Second (MIPS) processed by the core systems.

About the customer

The company is one of the world leaders in the insurance and asset management sectors, serving more than 100 million customers in over 70 countries. Italy is the group’s second insurance market, with a significant customer base served by a multichannel distribution network of agents, collaborators on the territory, financial advisors, and essential bancassurance agreements.

The Goal

The company strongly relies on its agency portal, an innovative digital ecosystem providing its network of agents and sub-agents a single place to manage the relationships with its customer base and perform up-selling and cross-selling activities. However, the portal used to aggregate information directly from the various company systems (e.g., personal area, claims management system) to collect valuable customer data, such as the policies expiration, the claims summary, and the subject registries that translate into actionable tasks and notifications for the network of agents. This direct integration between the different systems and the portal required complex aggregation logics embedded in the frontend, leading to lengthy response times and frequent performance timeouts. Therefore, the agency network was unable to act on value-added tasks in a timely manner to engage its customer base.

The Solution

The company relied on Mia-Platform to decouple the agency frontend from the backend systems, aggregating data in an intermediate layer and easily exposing them in real-time to the group’s portal.

Thanks to Mia-Platform Fast Data, the company started building a single view of all the notifications grouped based on macro categories such as claims and portfolios and specific classes like car damages, policy quotations, and more. Once aggregated in these target categories, notifications have been enriched with user IDs of the agents that read the notifications to keep track of pending notifications within the portal. Moreover, with the postdated notifications single view, the notification providers are now allowed to schedule notifications to be exposed to the agency network at a particular time in the future.

The company can now rely on a unique hub to aggregate notifications and expose them in near real-time to the whole agency network, a single agency or subagency, or a specific user. In addition, the agency portal now provides the agents with an organized view of their tasks and activities, along with details of each relevant action and integration with other company portals.
Relying on Mia-Platform Fast Data, the company has also pursued an efficient legacy modernization strategy. The high-performing decoupling layer significantly reduced the Millions of Instructions Per Second (MIPS) processed by the company’s core systems.

The future perspective is to increase the number of core notification systems integrated with Mia-Platform Fast Data. Additionally, the goal is to expand the number of channels and touchpoints beyond the agency portal. For instance, a notification about a policy expiration would be sent to both the agent through the agency portal and the customer via the company app.
