The Problem

Lack of dedicated, cross-platform mobile applications for customers and insurance agents for seamless customer insurance policy buying experience and improved operational productivity.

  • Need for a tailored mobile application for customers
    The client required a feature-rich, cross platform mobile application for its new customers through which they can easily enroll and purchase different insurance products across life, general, individual health product lines and mortgages areas.
  • Imminent requirement for a mobile application for insurance agents
    The absence of a platform to access the new policy requirement data from customers anytime and anywhere was impacting the productivity of agents, making it one of the main reasons behind a very high policy purchase and processing time. There was a strong requirement for an easy to use and feature rich app which would support agents’ daily operations, including quote generation, meeting scheduling, and seamless data capturing and flow, along with other activities. They also wanted to get a real-time view of their business, revenue targets and commission on the same application.
