Zylker Insurance, a leading insurance company catering a wide range of customer insurance uses Zoho CRM to achieve their data collection and customer relationship goals. Starting with prospect generation, applications, policies, claims, invoices, reporting and referral management, the insurance CRM solution reduces data entry and makes its management effective for insurance agents.

Data dense customer and policy information

While data management is a breeze, accessing specific data isn't. For their CRM, which has multiple modules segregated like Prospects, Policy Holders, Policies, Claims, Commissions, etc, their agents find it hard to fetch specific data.

A few issues faced by teams while dealing with high data density are:

    • Delay in response time:

      As the agent performs calls with customers and collaborates with them, they take a few to several minutes to search for specific crucial info, through the loads of unorganized data. For example, finding the exact amount claimed by the customer for their recent vehicle claim, will take a couple of clicks and scanning, while juggling through the modules.

    • Miss out critical information:

      For any policies, the info related to premium amount, coverage and it's due date are crucial. In a module, with several related data, it is hard for the sales agents to pick out critical info while scanning through the entire page.

    • Lack of personalized interactions:

      For customers to feel special, providing them a personalized experience is the way to go! For this, the agents need to know the exact crucial data sets. For example, contact info, an overview of the policies, loans and claims of a customer will be highly useful to start a more personalized interaction.

In spite of CRM having all the required info, not having the ability to view selected crucial info of a customer's profile at the glance remains to be a continuous challenge.
