Creating tomorrow's solutions, today.
With the world of technology continually changing, we are committed to the development of our company with the potential to improve our industry, our clients’ businesses and the experience of customers and policyholders.
We believe that innovation has enormous potential to overcome many of the traditional pain points in the claims experience to better serve customer demands, whilst reducing associated costs and managing regulation.
We have created a number of industry-leading solutions that combine with our expertise for better customer outcomes.
To enable the many different areas of our business to work together with a seamless connectivity, we developed a proprietary claim managed platform - Centric.
Centric has been built on adhering to criteria that encompasses one or more of the following core drivers: settling claims quickly and efficiently; ensuring claim accuracy; reducing fraud; and streamlining workflows across authority levels.
This starts at the time of lodgement with the online notification ability and continues throughout the claim with the ConnectMe and ConnectMeLIVE tools, connecting the customer to claim handler and suppliers.
Centric ensures that the information available to all stakeholders in the claim, whether client, supplier, claim handler or customer is accurate current and reliable. Within the system there are a high level of KPI and compliance measures, financial controls and a real time management information reporting capability available for our clients.
Because the insurance world is constantly changing, we have developed Centric to be flexible enough to meet the needs of our wide and varied client base. We recognise the differences that exist between client and that one size does not fit all. Centric is adaptable and flexible enough to allow us to use it in client bespoke solutions to any claim management or loss adjusting need.
McLarens has developed an innovative ConnectMe portal that significantly enhances both the Insurer and the customer experience, enabling interactive access to claims system via their PC, tablet or mobile phone at any time of the day or night. This engages and empowers customers to take some control via the ability to:
- View the progress of their claim
- Connect with the Loss Adjuster or Claims Technician directly
- Contact suppliers directly
- Upload photos and update documents
- Provide real time customer satisfactions result
Embedded within Centric, ConnectMeLIVE allows for real time video sharing and photo capture. This is achieved through one-time links being created and the photos captured are automatically stored and immediately visible through Centric and ConnectMe. This helps us deliver on our promise of getting the right person at the right place at the right time.
Being able to see what the customer sees, as they are seeing it, provides a significant step forward in claim management and supplier engagement options. ConnectMeLIVE allows for a great number of desktop claim decisions to be made, reduce delays of sending support documentation, improve triage and accelerate the right response.
ConnectMeLIVE delivers the opportunity for a significant increase in the efficiency and reduction of claim handling costs.
We manage our supply chain using our PartnerConnect service which has been developed to manage the wide and varied range of suppliers that we deal with on a daily basis.
