How the Process Works
When a vehicle is involved in an accident, the customer opens the insurance company’s app or its website on the phone and goes through the following simple steps:
- The customer initiates a call with the insurance company’s customer care agent.
- Based on the information provided by the customer, the agent verifies the identity.
- The claims executive pulls out the customer’s data such as the sum insured, coverage, the type of insurance, etc.
- The agent shares with the customer a video link via SMS or chat to instantly hold a video call.
- The customer clicks on the link, the video call starts, and a claims executive guides them on the next steps.
- The agent asks the customer to show the number plate and VIN for the purpose of verification.
- On the video call, the agent guides the customer on how to show the damaged sections of the accident-hit vehicle and the immediate location or setting.
- Annotations are added to list the damaged parts shown on the video call.
- The survey done on the video call is recorded for further assessment.
- If satisfied, the agent offers a tentative settlement amount based on an assessment of the damage.
- Within a few minutes, the claim amount gets confirmed!
