AuraPortal Improves INS's Proceedings Support in Costa Rica

This project involves the workflow of thousands of civil servants, more than a million clients

AuraPortal, a global provider of Business Process Management (BPM), announced today that Costa Rica partner AIC (Spanish abbreviation for 'International Insurance Adviser') will launch, in April this year, the complete set of business processes within the 'Electronic File per Client' Project at the INS, (Spanish abbreviation for the 'National Insurance Institute' government institution), in Costa Rica.

The AuraPortal Business Process Management Suite (BPMS) implementation will allow the INS, the most important insurance institution in Central America, to expedite the proceedings of their insurance and claims departments through the joint work of three key customer-management processes: Insurance, Data Modification and Claims.

Alvaro Padilla, head of the INS IT Department, stated that AuraPortal's solution "Allows for the customization of all process steps in order to fully automate the follow-up, control, and required regulatory compliance of claims for the associated participants involved. This means that when a customer asks about the status of their claim, the INS will be able to provide an updated status immediately".

Technically this is a major challenge, since the institute's enterprise-wide technology infrastructure must be linked with one common platform from which 2,500 civil servants across a wide network of Offices and Point of Sale locations can access information. In addition, the INS staff must be able to obtain current information about their customers, their policies, claims, complete digital files, and all proceedings that were already in process prior to the implementation of the new system.

Among the benefits to be obtained with this AuraPortal Case Management solution, ('Electronic File per Client' accessible by all staff), will be the significant improvement of administrative efficiency, faster staff and management decision making, and greater flexibility within the IT department to easily adapt and change processes as the INS's business requirements evolve. Staff members will now be able to access all customer information in one unique place, display of all the paperwork submitted by the client, and view the key performance indicator status in management reports with a single click, bringing real-time, online processes status to the entire organization.
