Areas of Concern in Life Insurance Industry

  1. Growing Claims
  2. Increasing litigation
  3. Rising agent attrition
  4. Escalating non-traditional competition such as brokerages and banks

In such a scenario remedial measures must be taken by insurance companies especially those dealing with life insurance. Thus most life insurance companies are looking at reducing administrative and labor costs through automation and outsourcing.

Life Insurance functions that can be offshored effectively

Initially life insurance companies started outsourcing BPO work such as simple data entry work and were followed by claims processing, outbound sales, billing and settlement, and policy fulfillment. As time goes by and confidence grows we will see a significant increase in off shoring of end-to-end customer support functions, underwriting and even actuarial support services.

Overall, what started out as pure back office work has now transcended the BPO-KPO divide, and even core insurance processes are being off shored. Indeed the focus of insurance companies particularly in the life insurance vertical has switched from just back office support work to rectification and strengthening of critical business processes.

It is to this segment of life insurance back office support that Outsource2india provides proficiency bringing to you a host of comprehensive solutions that will fit your life insurance offshoring requirements.
