Creating Fast and Error-Free Client Request Handling for EU Insurance Company
A leading insurance company approached IBA Group. Their company offers many types of risk protection, including medical, auto, cargo, mortgage/homeowner’s insurance, and property protection coverage. The Europe-based insurer was hoping to optimize its processing of client requests.
We helped them find a solution that would streamline their procedures and automate client request processing, reduce their error rate, and cut down on client request processing time.
Our solution used Camunda platform and EasyRPA to optimize client request processing, significantly reducing the error rates and processing times.

Solution: Project Stages and Implementation
Like many of our projects, we took the discovery and implementation process through several steps to ensure that the IBA Group and the insurance company were on the same page.
Initial Analysis: IBA Group conducted a detailed review of the existing business processes at the insurance company so we could fully understand the functionality.
Bottleneck Identification: In a follow-up to the initial analysis, IBA Group identified the weak points in the processes and systems that were causing the slowdowns and delays in the client request processing.
Core Issues Analysis: The project team also analyzed the issues that arose from manual data entry errors and led to the issuance of unattractive offers to clients.
Technical Solution Selection: The project team based on the identified bottlenecks and re-issuance concerns selected Camunda to orchestrate all process activities and RPA to substitute manual tasks.
Automation using EasyRPA with AI module: 3 robots were implemented that has significantly expedited and enhanced the customer request processing procedure. They automatically processed the data, recognized, classified and generated the necessary documents in the system.
Process automation using Camunda: the team has created a new process using Camunda which orchestrates the work between humans, robots and other customer systems in an efficient way.
Integration with CRM: Camunda automatically transfers client data to CRM, where the new client is created or client data is verified. This has significantly reduced the risk of errors.
Integration with other client systems: Camunda calls existing quotes calculation module and module to create client documents. This reduced the client documents preparation and excluded human intervention.
Approval and notification steps: Camunda creates tasks for the managers in the tasklist for final quota approval and sends notification to the client about the decision on quota of insurance upon final approval.
Training and Demonstration: IBA Group conducted a workshop for the company following the implementation with a demo of the new application.
Ultimately, the solution met the needs of the client and was a successful choice. There were several highlights within the solution that IBA Group implemented:
Process automation with Camunda: Camunda allows process automation and different tasks orchestration reducing quotes preparation time and the level of the human intervention.
Integration: Wide range of Camunda connectors and APIs facilitate seamless integration between different systems. As a result, client data was synchronized with the CRM system, and EasyRPA robots are incorporated into the process without need of human intervention.
EasyRPA Automation: Incorporating three robotic processes improved and accelerated the client request processing mechanism. The deployed robots using the AI module streamlined data processing with automatic data recognition, classification, and document generation capabilities.
Process Conclusion: The entire process is complete once all stages are successfully executed and the client is duly informed about the outcome.
Benefits for the Customer
