Client Profile

Established in the year 1980, the client is a specialty insurance firm that provides risk management solutions to businesses and entrepreneurs operating in challenging markets, including emerging industries, ones considered too small by traditional insurers, and one with higher-than-average risk. Among all, the client is well-known in the insurance market for its products specific to cannabis businesses.

The Problem

Lack of digitization in cannabis insurance operations model and utilization of manual workflows for customer onboarding, quote generation, policy management, claims processing, and other involved processes.

  • Absence of automated end-to-end processes for cannabis insurance operations:
    The client’s teams were handling the majority of the insurance processes, ranging from onboarding and quote generation to policy and claims administration manually. There was an imminent need of highly automated digital solution for cannabis insurance processes that could replace the error-prone and time-consuming human workflows.
  • Imminent requirement of a multi-state friendly solution:
    With the rapid expansion of the cannabis insurance market in some US states, the client required a cost-effective solution that met the multi-state compliance regulations to secure operational adherences.
  • Limited scope of the current operating model:
    Due to manual processes and legacy systems, the existing operating model was highly inflexible, with limited and siloed data accessibility for reps in the field, and scalability issues, resulting in massive hurdles in the path of operations expansion.
