Continued Success

Over the past four years the MA Group have extended their use of the Pulse claims workflow system to include regular updates from EDM Group Ltd, these include:

Desktop Validation Workflow which utilises the experience and specialist technical knowledge of on-site engineers to provide a call center based service that delivers an impartial and cost effective decision-making process for the assessment of Insurer's liability, cause and repair cost. In both commercial and domestic property claims this enables a rapid response to Insurer instructions, through the identification of damage and an accurate assessment of Insurance Policy liability. With the information gathered a considered, cost effective and immediate decision can be made to either fulfil, cash settle or repudiate the claim according to the claims philosophy of the instructing Insurer.

Enhanced Desktop Scoping which allows for a detailed and accurate schedule of work to be quickly and easily created by suppliers. This enables a central claims coordinator to make an intelligent assessment of the claim and propose the appropriate settlement strategy. This feature reduces the likelihood of scoping anomalies which not only results in higher customer satisfaction but also provides more detailed management information for the Insurer.

"With the Market requiring an ever changing mix of fulfilment and settlement options it's important that Pulse can continue to deliver a workflow solution across all aspects of the claims process for insurers and their business partners. Pulse ensures that the scope and cost of a claim is managed within a tightly controlled environment, reducing the claims lifecycle whilst always treating the customer fairly."
