Allianz Insurance Romania was searching a solution for standardized documents management in order to fulfill regulatory requirements and business needs.
A unified documents repository system was necessary to increase information retrieval while providing integration with the core business applications managing the customer files generated across 180 distributed branches. Also a new front-end electronic insurance policy issuing mechanism was intended.
No standardized procedures and no centralized registration processes; Over 50% of documents not registered correctly or not registered at all; Lack of traceability and loss of documents due to faulty paper handling; Lack of space in offices (large amounts of documents stored in offices); Long retrieval time for physical documents; Unprotected confidential information; Significant multiplication, transfer and paper management costs; Long processing times and insurance policy issuing times for agents; Generate insurance policies in PDF format, biometrically.
The solution allowed front-end paperless operations when issuing and signing insurance policies and delivered a unified registration process of all incoming/outgoing documents across all branches. A clear workflow is now in place for digitizing the physical archive. Moreover the electronic archiving and records management solution enables the company to store all the documents in a single, unified repository while securely exposing it to the business users and core applications.
