BUSINESS SITUATION

Aquilo wanted a very easy to use, guided claims call entry and management system, which would enable them to utilize relatively less costly workers to handle insurance claims in a claims processing call center – so that they can lower their operational cost.

WHY GRAMEEN?

Grameen offered cost-effective services at a superior value. Grameen had demonstrated technical skills and project management capability in earlier engagements with the partner.


THE CHALLENGE

  • Make it user-friendly and aligned with the workflow of claims call workers.

GRAMEEN SOLUTION

REALIZED BENEFIT

  • An estimated 30 percent savings on call center staffing costs
  • Leverage on existing expertise of human experts without human communications overhead
  • Increased scalability of the claims management service
  • Improved, automated monitoring, tracking and reporting
