The insurance industry is being severely tested by a desolate economic environment and continual market downturn, forcing insurance carriers to radically change their cost structures. There is a steady rise in the number of insurance carriers promoting a "click and pick online" approach to sell insurance, instead of sticking to traditional methods that relied more on interpersonal relationships and mutual trust. As a result, insurance agencies now are also facing a soft market and lesser margins.
For an insurance agency to stay relevant in these testing times, it has to operate economically and efficiently while automating as many processes as possible. However, even with the latest online marketing strategies and real time quoting tools, there are certain tasks which can be optimally executed only when outsourced to a professional Insurance BPO. As your outsourcing partner, we, at Flatworld Solutions, can leverage our deep expertise in the Insurance domain to provide affordable, fast, and scalable solutions for your business processes.

As an independent insurance agency, you can benefit from the following services offered by us -
At Flatworld Solutions, our dedicated teams of insurance professionals are adept at working with multiple carriers to get insurance quotes and then prepare a summary according to the client proposal requirements. As an added advantage, we also extract Carrier Financial Ratings for every quote summary.
Our insurance back office experts ensure that the process involved in receiving and issuing a certificate of insurance is fast and accurate. This process is further strengthened by efficient third-party communication and processing of revised certificates after policy renewals.
Our robust document indexing and filing services allow fast access of properly segregated documents, as and when required. Documents are labeled and indexed as per the naming conventions requested by the client, so that it can be easily searched and edited.
Our teams of professional insurance staff save your valuable time by sending loss run requests to previous insurance carriers, and providing loss run data timely during policy renewals. Before preparing the claims report, our team analyzes the loss run data, and sends it to the underwriters, and notifies them, in case the loss run data is missing.
Our team ensures that the policy checking process for an insurance agency is fast and accurate. All policy documents are reviewed for completeness and correctness, and any variance present is recorded. These variances are then reported to the insurance carriers, and a request for revised policy document is made. This process ensures that a final policy document without any variance is received and issued.
Our insurance billing experts ensure accurate and timely delivery of invoices to the respective carriers and constant follow-up for timely collection of payments. They also confirm that the premium installments on a policy are set up as per customer requests. Once a payment is received, it's duly recorded and indexed in our database, where the archives are maintained as per the clients' needs.
We help you effectively plan and manage policy renewals by keeping track of renewals in advance, and sending renewal reminders when necessary. We also help in receiving renewal requests and interacting with the carriers for renewals, thereby ensuring that any adjustments to an insurance policy is taken into account before the renewal process commences.
