History

Our business is understanding the returns on investment for each claim decision point.

Claims Recovery was our first application of this skill set, and is still the largest service by revenue.

We started by taking in individual claims, expanded across business lines, and then grew to taking full responsibility for recovery departments. While this is still a core offering for us, we recognize that insurers and risk departments have varying appetites for partnering externally (in many areas, not just recovery).

That realization led to alternative partnering models. Currently, we can team on specific functions within insurer’s recovery departments, consult to improve a client’s Claim and/or recovery departments, and improve insurer workflows to maximize the benefits of new system integrations.

Two factors drive our service offering flexibility on scale, pricing and scope.

First, as we’ve learned more about claims and their cost-elements, we’ve developed a due diligence process that identifies improvement opportunities and quantifies the potential upside of partnering. We focus on what can be improved, and our joint review of an insurer’s operations provides the objective evidence for both targets and pricing. The more information an insurer can share, the tighter we can design our pricing through reducing project uncertainties – not unlike P&C insurance pricing for its customers.

The second reason for our flexibility on offerings is the reality of being an entrepreneurial, but modestly sized, service provider to insurers.

How open are people to learning about what needs improvement?

How best to manage the accompanying change?
