Since July 2004, Actec has provided all after-hours, overflow, holiday and unanticipated closure coverage for a large national insurance company. We currently have nearly 40 phone lines coming in for this client, for each of their claims offices, their primary care center and several large accounts with custom requirements. Calls range from 50 to 500 daily (primarily after-hours). When unexpected volume is directed to Actec, an additional several hundred calls can be offered during a 2-3 hour timeframe with short notice (if any). Our Intake Specialists enter claims real-time via Internet directly into the client’s claim system and take inquiry messages in our own application, which are automatically emailed to the appropriate recipients for prompt handling. This kind of preparedness is crucial in first notice of loss programs.

First notice of loss presents an area of great opportunities for many medium and large-scale businesses to improve their bottom line. Decreasing risk and shrink while increasing quality of life for employees is a trade-off where everyone wins. But if it sounds too good to be true, that’s because it can be deceptively complex. Understanding the necessary protocols, staffing a facility with trained professionals, and following up on issues around the clock demands a skill set that most companies lack. For precisely this reason, the practice of outsourcing FNOL solutions is both a logical choice and a sound investment. Leveraging purpose-built professional call centers to field first notice of loss claim intake and handling allows businesses of many sizes to become more agile and adaptable.
