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.
Different organizations require individualized FNOL solutions. Using a proprietary intake solution in house, we have fewer constraints than a software/ASP vendor, and can implement customizations quickly, as needed rather than on a rigid schedule. We have developed custom browser-based solutions for claim intake, and additional client- or customer-specific questions and instructional scripts can be set up, changed or deleted within minutes by the Account Manager.The many built-in capabilities are primarily profile driven to easily manage the needs of our diverse customer base.
