• Allianz signs licence agreement to utilise ORIAC’s Business Process Manager (BPM) software to automate and speed up its claims handling processes

London, 7th April 2015. ORIAC Solutions, the UK's leading TIA specialist, is proud to announce that insurance company Allianz Insurance PLC is now using its Business Process Manager (BPM) solution to deliver an even better claims service to its direct customers. ORIAC’s BPM is an add-on module to TIA’s insurance administration system, which enables insurers to more effectively run their internal operations. ORIAC’s BPM helps over 500 claims handlers at Allianz to manage claims transactions quickly and easily. Thanks to ORIAC’s BPM, Allianz’s claims teams are now working more effectively and efficiently and workloads are far better balanced. This helps to ensure that customers’ claims are settled quickly and that the whole process is as stress-free as possible.

Jenny Steyn, Business Change Manager at Allianz comments: “In today’s insurance market, where competitors are literally one click away, we have to ensure that we are able to leverage all of the resources available to us. We make every effort to provide our customers with a market leading claims service and to make the claims experience as simple and as fair as possible. Where we deploy ORIAC’s BPM solution it contributes to our ability to deliver that high level of service consistently and efficiently. This makes for happier customers - our ultimate goal.”

Part of the Allianz Group, Allianz Insurance plc offers a wide range of personal and business products. These include property , motor, pet, musical and legal protection insurance. Using BPM, Allianz is able to obtain complete visibility of all the work that has been created, seen and actioned for a claim in one centralised location, even if it was created elsewhere in the TIA policy administration system. ORIAC BPM is easy to learn, use and configure and is aligned to the TIA user experience. Users can also easily understand whether work has been actioned within the allotted timescales and if tasks are nearing their deadlines. A full FSA compliant audit trail of all work items including who worked on what, when it was changed, changed hands or when it was closed, is captured via an Audit Trail Screen.

To summarise key components of the system include:

• Work Overview Screens show all customer work items in one centralised location
• Work Assignment Screens provide administrators with complete visibility and the ability to quickly assign work centrally and monitor
• Work User Inbox Screen shows all work items and which user (or queue) they are currently assigned too.
• Automatic tasks are created via an API and automatic SLA’s are created with agreed deadlines
• Green, Amber and Red colour coding is available for quick SLA visibility

Kevin Wallis-Eade, Director of ORIAC Solutions, comments: “We are committed to helping insurance companies stand out from their competitors in a crowded and price-sensitive market. Members of the ORIAC team have enjoyed a relationship with Allianz since 1998 and know that enhancing productivity is key to the overall effectiveness of its operations. If you are processing thousands of claims and dealing with thousands of customer every day, how quickly and effectively you can do this will be critical to not only the bottom line but it will also contribute to an improvement in policy renewals”
