How Is Automation Able To Help Insurers To Recover In The Pandemic?

As the coronavirus’ toll continues to impact populations across the globe, insurance agencies are burdened with figuring out how to support policyholders across a variety of unprecedented circumstances. From increases in death and disability claims to large commercial and specialty claims as factories close, to workers’ compensation and third-party liability claims, agents have suddenly been tasked with processing a massive volume of sensitive cases.

Compounded with a substantial influx of claims is the fact that many agents have been forced to quickly switch to remote work, potentially hindering productivity outside of their typical office structure. As a result, the service quality that agents are capable of providing may suffer if they don’t arm themselves with the tools needed to efficiently respond to customer concerns. And with coronavirus cases increasing, these challenges will only become more glaring.

One potential solution? Automation. By executing the time-consuming and often tedious back-office processes that constitute much of agency work, automation can expedite agents’ workflows so that they can operate more resourcefully and deliver a better experience to customers both under today’s circumstances, as well as during any future challenges agencies may face.

Paper, email, or contact center channels, doing so with increased accuracy and speed. Additionally, by aggregating data into a centralized location and format. Automation reduces the frequency of routine queries between coworkers, who can instead be more self-efficient in their workflows.

Automation software can also execute straight-through-processing of simpler. Claims where no or little payment is needed (proportional to policy value) to complete. Customer requests without the need for human intervention. For example, automation can service customer requests for Certificates of. Insurance and Proof of Coverage by monitoring emails for the inbounds and creating. The service request, then executing policy data extraction, certificate or proof letter creation, and ultimately managing customer communication.

Automation can also assist with more complex responsibilities; more advanced, machine learning-infused automation software is capable of making strategic decisions. To support fraud analysis and even create litigation packages where needed. With these tedious but necessary tasks taken care of, agents can stay on top. Of their workloads and dedicate more of their time towards rewarding, strategic agency activities.

Additionally, because some automation software programs can be easily integrated. With existing legacy systems, agents need not fear that automation implementation will require operational downtime to set up. Instead, with the right platform, agencies can get programs up and running quickly to experience automation’s benefits.

Without busying a representative, thereby cutting down on customer wait time. If the bot is incapable of completing the customer’s unique request. It can opt to elevate the conversation to an agent, meaning agency employees. Are only called in for the inquiries in which their input will be most valuable.

Automation can also work behind the scenes to enable agents to engage in more thoughtful conversations with customers. Just as automation software can organize data, agents can action the technology. When a policyholder calls into source relevant customer information. Eliminating delays caused by the agent having to collect that information themselves. Armed with this knowledge, agents can help customers resolve sooner.

At the end of the day, agencies should still rely on their human agents to move the business forward. And with the increases in claims, many are likely looking to hire to support existing workforces. But while agencies need extra talent to support the influx of customer. Requests, it can be difficult for staff to source and onboard. Employees efficiently on top of their usual priorities (and to do so while remote).
