Insurance

A conversational space for meaningful customer journeys

Insurance companies that offer consistent customer experience grow faster and are more profitable.

Put the customer at the heart of your strategy

Most people interact with their insurers less than once a year. With so few customer interactions, it’s critical that insurers deliver these experiences well. Each interaction needs to be treated like a critical moment of truth, particularly in the claims process which is often the one-shot insurers have to prove themselves.

So, what makes a positive experience? Convenience, personalization, human interaction, and reassurance. These meaningful experiences occur when the customer can seamlessly weave in and out of automated and human interactions.

  • Convenience

    Customers want the convenience of filing claims online but they also want the personal touch that comes with speaking to their insurance agent. They want to be able to upload and manage their paper trail online with a dashboard that can track everything related to their policy and coverage.

  • Personalization

    They expect pricing and product offerings that are relevant and personalized for their unique situation. They want online tools to make things simpler and easier when they find themselves in difficult circumstances.

  • Human interaction

    They want to move between devices and to shift from self-service to human help whenever it suits them.

  • Reassurance

    When a customer contacts their insurer, they are often in distress and have questions; they need to talk to someone who understands. At every touchpoint they expect their insurer to know who they are and their personal preferences so they can pick up the conversation where they last left off.

A conversational interface that fits into the customer’s life

We work with more than 150 financial institutions in the world, helping them to optimize their processes of advice, sales and online support. Customers want the convenience of the digital and self-service experience, but they also want the personal touch that comes with speaking to their insurer when they need it. Our platform is used for topics such as:

Improve the claims experience

A customer experience that flows easily enables an agent to better resolve issues and care for the customer’s unique needs. Rather than keeping a customer on the phone for twenty minutes or more as they explain the incident, the entire process can be handled via mobile, using chat, video and document sharing functions. For the customer who is stranded by the side of the road or in a daze in a hospital corridor, this level of convenience and simplicity can give peace of mind and even build loyalty.

Advise customers online on complex topics

Talking to a chatbot may offer a starting point for customers looking into complex issues like a pension plan. But when it comes to the final decision on these complex long-term decisions, customers will want to speak to a real human who can offer specific advice and reassurance. Chatbots provide the bridge from digital to human. Then the advisor continues online for however long it takes, with solutions such as messenger, video, and co-browsing. 

Optimize Conversion Rates on marketing campaigns

If, as an insurance company, you have invested a large part of your budget in bringing traffic to your online channels, it seems logical that you should invest money to optimize the conversion rate. In the case of the financial sector, products are often complex and contracting complicated. The self-service concept is therefore not always 100% applicable. Our customers are using solutions like live chat, video chat or co-browsing to establish mechanisms that allow them to retain and convince customers at the moment of truth - just at that point when they are ready to buy.

Visually support customers online

With solutions such as Live Chat and Co-Browsing our advisors improve efficiency in the customer support process and issues resolution from the Contact Center. They report up to 40% reduction in the time needed to solve a customer issue.

Business value for Unblu’s customer

Financial institutions bridge the gap between online self-service interactions and traditional communication methods in order to have a directly positive effect on customer satisfaction, sales conversion and customer loyalty.

  • Humanize and simplify the claims process

    During life’s most difficult times, customers need guidance and understanding. Unblu takes the hassle out of the claims process by giving you the right tools, so you can support your customers wherever and whenever they need assistance - at the roadside, at the airport, or in a hospital corridor.

  • Help them easily compare and purchase products

    Purchasing insurance products can sometimes be challenging for customers. With Unblu’s LiveView and Co-browsing features, agents can guide customers through the end-to-end process. Because they can see what the issue is, they can help customers more efficiently. Contextual help means higher first-call resolution rates, lower costs, and higher customer satisfaction.

  • Design new services and interact more often using more platforms

    Unblu enables insurance companies to build new services for end-customers, allowing them to multiply customer touchpoints and interactions on their websites, mobile apps and customer portals.
