Inefficiency and ineffectiveness in an insurance claims department are a bit like a boat at sea that has a hole in the hull and is taking on water. The skipper is trying to move forward, but the leak keeps slowing it down.Technology
An insurance claim may get off to a great start, but time constraints and complex processes can bog down the most experienced claims adjuster. Timing is of the essence.
When adjusters cannot be agile, claims take longer and get more expensive. Before you know it, the costs of a claim are much larger than anticipated, resulting in claims leakage.
Technology can reduce claims leakage, saving insurance companies billions of dollars each year with the help of what we call digital coworkers.
When a claim comes in, a claims adjuster’s first task is to gather all relevant information. Then, they need to project how much the insurance company will need to pay for the claim. When the final numbers come in, the insurance company compares the initial projection of costs to the amount ultimately paid.
