A Case Study

A large multinational insurance carrier was not handling receivable accounts properly as they did not have the clarity and did not get their priorities right. This happened due to years of backlogs (10+ years) and a small team. This meant that the firm needed to adopt a structure and robust model for knowledge management and performance monitoring.

EXL came onboard to help this company through its deep knowledge in automation and analytics. EXL established a team that exclusively handled the premium reconciliations and loss adjustment volumes. This enabled the teams to manage huge backlogs that the company had accumulated over time. The enhanced manageability resulted in enhanced effectiveness and end-to-end visibility which was led by analytics powered collections.


-Analytics and automation helped company reduce duplicate payments by 90%

-Annual savings of $11 million and $1.1 million vendor credits recovered in year one

-The close cycle went from 7 days to 3 days
