Process Orchestration for Insurance Companies

With the drive towards large-scale digitization of products and services accelerating, insurers should act now to remain competitive, conduct business more efficiently and reduce costs.

Using Camunda, customers in the insurance sector can achieve benefits in excess of $25m over 3 years – an ROI of 408%.

Both established insurers and emerging insurtechs can greatly benefit from revisiting the systems they have in place and replacing outdated platforms with scalable, digital-first insurance automation solutions. Although very different in the way they operate, both encounter similar challenges that put their business at risk:

  • Outdated legacy systems and homegrown automation software that both aren’t built for scale
  • Lack of visibility and strategic oversight
  • Risk of key processes breaking down
  • Complex regulatory landscape
  • High competitive pressure
  • Growing demand for frictionless customer experiences

Customer success

Optimizing customer experience through process orchestration

Visana, a Swiss health and accident insurance company serving over one million individuals, decided to further develop its technical infrastructure, accelerate workflows and improve the customer experience by automating the claims process. Their existing solution lacked transparency and actionable insights, so they selected Camunda to orchestrate a number of systems including the entire incoming mail process as a document management service – with a daily load of 32,000 documents. In addition, Visana uses Camunda Optimize to create performance reports and heat maps that identify where processes and resource allocation could be improved.

Today, Visana continues to deliver on its core customer commitments – that customers receive their policies within 20 minutes, and agreed benefits within an average of eight working days. They expect to make fundamental changes to roughly 25% of job functions to realize the potential of a fully functional workflow automation system.

Speeding up benefits with claims processing automation

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides a variety of benefit services to nearly 22 million U.S. Veterans and their families.

With the Covid-19 pandemic forcing employees to work from home and veterans increased need for benefits, one of the biggest challenges the VA faced was improving claims processing automation.

From start to finish, it took less than eight weeks to deploy the new benefits claims processing solution replacing letters that were manually generated from templates and text fragments. The VA now uses fully automated controls harnessing data inputs combined with decision rule outcomes.

Digital transformation at scale

Provinzial, one of Germany’s leading insurers handling premiums in excess of €6b per year, chose Camunda to undergo a complete transformation from a predominantly paper-based approach to an automated, process-orientated way of working. Today, more than 100 processes and 250 decisions have been automated, running around ten million process instances each year.

Find out how Provinzial rolled out Camunda across the organization.
