One out of every five customers switches insurers owing to dissatisfaction with claims processing. Hence, it is important for insurers to continuously improve claims process with innovative and proactive features.
However, most insurance companies are found spending a fair amount of time in the field and even more so behind a desk – prioritizing, documenting and closing claims. It’s time to steer away from paper-based Field Service Management (FSM) and shift to a mobile workforce system that boosts efficiency and also reduces time. Fortunately, modern claims platforms and digital technologies provide an excellent opportunity to address these challenges.
With a simple mobile application, insurance companies can minimize the turnaround period to receive an estimate to a great extent. The field agents can login using their tablet or mobile device and submit photos to show the damages and capture real-time details of the loss.
This mobile option will also help in cutting down the time adjusters spend on processing a claim and deliver an estimate to the customers within hours. Such intuitive and user-friendly digital solutions can be leveraged throughout the claims settlement process in order to streamline and accelerate claims processing. Moreover, an integrated digital workflow system helps insurers in faster resolution – approval or rejection – of claims based on submitted information. Digitization enables agencies to keep customers informed about the claims status at every stage through e-mail or SMS alerts or app notifications.
Typical Capabilities of a Mobile Claim Processing Solution
Offline data access: Mobile form of field agent to work even without internet connection
Real-time Data Integration: Integrates various APIs & audit check systems in real-time with the apps that need it
Search: Users can search for claims-related information including claimant, damage, and field agent assigned for easy retrieval of claim files
Photos: Field agents can take pictures using the built-in camera and estimate lost or damaged items and attach it to the report
Reports: Generates detailed claims reports based on pictures of damage & description for approver to take action
Assessment: Inspector can schedule inspection(s), mark coverage, and send a message to the claimant
Although human interaction will forever hold its importance in a claim that includes extensive damage, the adoption of a mobile claim processing solution will allow agents/adjuster firms to attend to other areas or customers that might be in need. To reduce development time and get the app out onto the market faster, insurance companies can look to partner with digital solutions expert to begin the integration of an Insurance Claims Application. Once enabled with a customized application integrated into their field services, insurers will be able to enjoy the benefits of enhanced efficiency, reduced operational costs, and the ability to offer seamless services to a wide-ranging spectrum of customers.
