At the Customer, For the Customer

Project Details

Client:

A large financial services company

Business Area:

Large Client Specialty Benefits

Opportunity:

Large Client team had recently implemented a new disability claims tracking and reporting process for a specific (and key) client, and that client was concerned about errors within the process

Findings:

In the first two months, there were 30% errors — 60 issues, out of 200 claims processed — the client had reported the problems a number of times, and they were quite frustrated

Results:

  • 2-day Workout approach identified the causes of the errors; got buy-in from vendor and customer to needed changes on both sides
  • After 30-day implementation, error rate was below 2%
