  • Taking the pain away from reconciliation and pay-outs
    Taking the pain away from reconciliation and pay-outs
    Wyn Jenkins, Managing Editor, Intelligent Insurer Apr 2 2019 12:30 pm UTC 75 mins
    This webinar examines solutions to improve efficiencies and reduce the cost of payment management for insurance providers.

    Research commissioned by next-generation provider of mission-critical financial services infrastructure, Banking Circle, has found that nearly a third (28%) of insurers use manual reconciliation methods. Consequently, payment reconciliation processes in the sector are currently highly inefficient, with matching rates lower than 90% for 57% of insurance providers. Anything less than 100% can impact cash flow, draining operational and financial resources as well as results.

    Only 19% of respondents rated their premium collection capability as excellent. And less than a third (28%) ranked their speed of claims payment as excellent.

    Find out more about how these challenges can be addressed at this special webinar hosted by Intelligent Insurer Magazine and sponsored by Banking Circle.

    Improving efficiency and reducing the cost of payment management – reconciliation and pay-outs – can go to the heart of an insurance business, improving customer service and loyalty. Payments are often an afterthought, but have a huge impact on efficiency of the business and should not be overlooked.
