The Quest – Automating Critical Service Components

The new normal fuelled the need for technology adoption in the insurance sector, an industry traditionally relied on offline processing.

But there was another factor, one that is subtly underplayed, yet a major contributor to technology adoption – Convenience. The convenience afforded by technology is something that the sophisticated, tech-savvy 21st century human species expect and insurance services aspire to achieve.

Our client, one of India’s leading insurance service providers, wanted to rethink their approach to match the speed and requirements of today’s digital world. They wanted to have an all-inclusive system that provides access to a holistic customer service platform.

Making customers self-sufficient with access to all policy related information

  • Build centralized access for all policy related information including policy documents, tax certificates, and Insurance cards
  • Provide Adequate assistance to the customers to choose the closest available hospitals network Labs, Branches, etc.
  • Providing automated responses to some of the frequently asked questions, thus reducing the call center volume

Seamless Claims

A digital system for users to register for claims, upload relevant documents, and track their status.

Live Agent Support

For complex requirements or escalations, provide an access to a human agent support center

The Solution – CAI Smart Assistant across Multiple Channels Acting as a Single Interface

One of the root causes for end customers having to go through various touchpoints is that all the systems were disjointed, and working in silos. We proposed a single-interface solution, where a Smart Assistant powered by Generative AI integrates seamlessly with different backend tech stacks to fetch relevant information or perform a required task. We deployed the smart assistant as a web-based solution and then extended the same to WhatsApp. WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app in India. Extending our Smart Assistant solution on WhatsApp improved the convenience for the customers multifold.

The solution was designed by integrating three aspects,

  • The data required for different functions like claims processing, locating healthcare centers, and relevant policy documents were stacked in different core applications within their databases. Automating the information capture workflows to communicate with these core tech stacks was fundamental
  • A low-code platform to help engage in contextual conversations with the customer, and help solve their queries. We reimagined the customer journey to be conversation-driven via text or voice to perform certain tasks, or get information.
  • Data security has evolved from being a luxury to a necessity. To ensure the conversations with the smart assistant were secure, we implemented two-factor authentication

The solution deployed was so intuitive that the customer adoption was immediate.

Benefits to the End Customers

  • A single Generative AI powered interface that helps insurers perform required tasks using natural language
  • Relevant and selective intervention through live agents when the interactions are required or when the customer requested
