The client is a pioneer in the U.S. insurance industry, known for introducing a ground-breaking compliance tracking tool. This innovative system brought together the Insured, Agent, and Certificate Holder (Requestor) onto a common platform for seamless electronic interaction. The client aimed to reduce dependency on traditional ACORD forms, which required printing on paper. They also sought to address issues such as bug seepage and reduced productivity caused by legacy technologies.
Business Problems and Scope
The client approached Xoriant with the challenge of developing a comprehensive system to address the onboarding needs of various stakeholders, including insured customers, agents, and requestors. The primary focus was to create a robust platform capable of efficiently handling a high volume of transactions while providing real-time compliance tracking.
One of the key pain points identified was the laborious and time-consuming process of requestors having to manually browse through stacks of paper documents to check insurance compliance. The proposed solution aimed to streamline this process by implementing an automated system that would enable stakeholders to efficiently send and receive proof of insurance.
Overall, the business scope of the project involved the development of a comprehensive onboarding system capable of seamlessly integrating with multiple Agent Management Systems (AMS). The system needed to handle millions of transactions while providing real-time compliance tracking. Additionally, it aimed to streamline the process for requestors, enable stakeholders to send and receive proof of insurance, synchronize data with other agency systems, and offer flexibility in subscription plans for requestors and exceptions for different types of suppliers.
