In this blog series, we’re looking at how enterprise content management brings modern technology to the insurance industry to streamline:  

Part 7: Optimizing Mobile Access: A Whole New World 

When insurers extend their enterprise content management (ECM) solutions to mobile devices, a whole new world opens  — giving employees more options while improving customer service. Optimizing mobile access means employees can stay connected to documents and information, keep processes moving with quick response times, and access transactions and stay current. With mobile access to transactions and documents, everyone is looped in, driving efficiency and continuity.  

Insurance decision makers are often on the road or out of the office. To keep processes moving, they need access to real-time information – wherever they are. And it’s not just emails or the Internet. They need to interact with all  their work processes. Whether working from home, at a conference, or offsite, they require the same sort of access they have at their office.  

Modern ECM solutions optimize mobile access, giving employees multiple ways to make decisions and act on claims beyond their office desks. Here’s how mobile ECM solutions keep processes moving from wherever employees are located:  

  • Shorten  document lifecycles – Move documents along in the process with approvals and reviews by accessing them from any mobile device. Remove the lag in time and customers win with a quick and efficient process.  
  • Increase productivityBecause employees can search, receive and act on documents wherever and whenever, key processes are in constant motion, productivity climbs and, again, customers win.  
     
  • Reduce errorsThe ECM synchronizes work directly back with the corporate network, reducing errors because the solution removes manual steps.  
     

Three Ways Mobile Access Improves Productivity 

Extending your ECM solution to mobile devices delivers multiple benefits. Here are three that insurers can take advantage of to securely gather information in the field and make it immediately available.  

Image capture 

Taking photos of an incident, such as a death certificate, healthcare invoice or auto repair estimate, helps to build a file with necessary evidence to process the claim faster. Uploading photos to the ECM solution saves time and makes them available as needed .  

Document capture 

Mobile devices become scanners in the field, capturing images of completed documents to send  to the ECM, which can flatten, clean up, and correct images of documents, especially if you need automated data extraction performed on the documents. 

Information capture 

Mobile devices optimize processes by leveraging electronic forms that capture information, including signatures, and submit it for immediate action.
