Client Profile

The client is amongst the oldest and top-ranked full-service life insurance companies operating in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean region for over 150 years. They offer a wide range of products and services, including life, health, and general insurance, annuities, pension administration, banking, and investment management. They have been awarded an A-, AM Best’s fourth-highest rating, which is assigned to agencies that have an “excellent” ability to meet their ongoing insurance obligations. They take pride in delivering an exceptional customer experience through financial prudence and a strong work ethic.

The Problem

Disparate systems and databases, leading to difficulty in data accessibility, poor customer experience (CX) and reduced productivity of IT team.

  • Absence of a Single Source of Truth:
    The client’s business entities were operating on different systems including some legacy ones, and each of these systems had its own databases. The inefficiencies due to disparate databases across multiple systems prevented the client from making use of the right data at the right time for even a simple task.
  • Challenges of IT Team:
    Legacy systems required users to alter coding to make even the minutest changes in rules or processes. As a result, the entire organization was heavily dependent on the IT department. The client struggled to manage their bandwidth during compliance audits as they had to manually dig through multiple databases since the data was spread across systems and cumbersome to access.
  • Poor Customer Experience:
    The absence of a platform to integrate disparate systems-including core platforms, portals, and mobile apps-resulted in multiple sources of data, reduced efficiency and higher TAT. Since it took a long time for teams to retrieve data and resolve user inquiries, customer satisfaction levels were at an all-time low.
