Client Profile

The client is a United States-based leading property and casualty (P&C) insurance company, focusing primarily on automobile insurance. Established in the 1980s, they rank among the top privately held property and casualty insurers in the United States, offering affordable, premium-quality insurance solutions tailored to the non-standard automobile insurance sector.

The Problem

The client wanted to improve their agent on boarding journey and interactions; however, certain bottlenecks posed by the existing complex and non-mobile-friendly- legacy system made this process a tedious one. Moreover, the absence of any central data repository made agent data management inefficient with limited reliability and reporting capabilities. To mitigate all these challenges, the client decided to replace their existing legacy system with a solution based on the Salesforce technology platform to simplify their agency and agent onboarding segment processes.

  • Absence of a user-friendly agent onboarding process:
    There was an apparent lack of an intuitive and responsive agency and agent onboarding process. The existing process was supported by a legacy system with tedious workflows, which made the entire onboarding process cumbersome.
  • Sluggish communication channels:
    The current intermediate communication channels utilized during the agent onboarding journey were slow and inefficient, leading to delays in the agent onboarding process.
  • Inefficient data management:
    The entire business-critical data, including agent and agency details, and financial details was stored in silos with no central data repository acting as a single source of truth.
  • Unreliable and limited reporting capability:
    All reports were generated via MS Excel which limited the scope of analysis of the data for further business insights.

Business-critical data capture

  • The implemented lead management application captured the enlisted agent as well as agency details, enriched the data with other necessary information, and processed it at different stages before it was converted into properly formatted data for the client.
  • The application also captured financial data, including the current and previous year’s business with the agents, and stored it in a single system (Salesforce platform), which would be the single source of truth.

Deployment of optimized code coverage
