Key Challenges

  1. The client aimed at proliferating their insurance business across the country, but lack of robust infrastructure, digital assets, and a modernized platform hindered their plans.
  2.  Agent’s inability to quickly access the information on customers, policies, and other documents proved to be impedimental and led to missed opportunities. Furthermore, the paper-based, manual processes resulted in a flippant approach towards the completion of tasks.
  3. Lack of flawless communication with agents resulted in low-retention rate and ineffective engagement, which proved detrimental for the client. The employee-agent relationship remained glacial and all the other stakeholders, too, lived in a fragmented environment.

Having paid 98.26% of the claims, our client is India’s leading life insurance company with a proven track record of over 17 years. Recipient of multiple awards and the only BFSI company in the country to make it to the Great Place to Work (2018), our client also deals in health, pension, and annuity while offering retirement, long-term savings, and protection solutions.

Our Solutions

We conducted a mobility and collaboration strategy program that involved workshops and interviews to identify the employees and the agents’ pain points such as real-time collaboration and effective decision-making . The existing landscape was also analyzed in order to strengthen the agent onboarding process, accelerate employee’s learning curve, and fast-track the internal processes with digital capabilities.

Based on this information and with excellent industry insight, we employed a high-performant technology architecture, design-thinking approach, digital strategies to build a real-time mobility solution for the client. Besides automating agent onboarding tasks and functionalities, our technology-led solution helped employees and agents in building an enduring relationship. The solution acted as a growth-enabler as it helped the client drive decisions, tasks, and performance based on real-time data across channels and partners.

We also created a centralized platform that encouraged employees and agents to play cross-functional roles. Now they can together define problem areas and devise the most suitable solutions while catering to customers. Agents can discuss their problem statements with employees and can be guided by them over sales call and sundries.
