Vlocity Launches Automated Claims Features to Expand End-to-End Insurance Policy Lifecycle Management

New Vlocity P&C solution offers insurance carriers omnichannel claims functionality

SAN FRANCISCO, May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vlocity, Inc., a leading industry cloud software company, announced today the launch of automated claims features in their award-winning Vlocity Insurance & Financial Services apps, built on the Salesforce AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with their customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. The launch includes end-to-end management of  property and casualty (P&C) insurance claims for policyholders, agents and claims handlers, and enables dynamic, digital claims interactions from any device. New features include peril-driven adjudication and an adjuster workbench that enhance a carrier's ability to run their entire business on Salesforce.

"The claims experience is a 'moment of truth' for a carrier as it may be one of the only interactions between a policyholder and carrier after the initial policy purchase," said Raja Singh, senior vice president and general manager of Vlocity Insurance. "With our new peril-driven adjudication capabilities, P&C carriers can augment their Salesforce platform with end-to-end, omnichannel claims functionality."

With Vlocity's newest P&C claims solution, carriers can download pre-configured claims processes from Vlocity's Insurance Process Library and leverage a modern, optimized user experience. Carriers, if they prefer, can create a completely new experience from scratch in a code-free environment using Vlocity's intuitive design interface. Connections to AI services allow artificial intelligence to be injected throughout the process to enhance the user experience with a chatbot or to conduct fraud checks. Key components of the new solution include:

  • A guided "First Notice of Loss" experience using pre-filled data where available, including real-time coverage verification and peril-specific question sets
  • Claims data management and view of in-process claims and history
  • Auto-adjudication based on peril and product rules
  • An adjuster workbench including data, images and documents
  • Transaction initiation for reserves management and payments

Vlocity provides a full suite of digital insurance applications which power business processes for agents, channel managers, brokers, customer service representatives and policyholders on top of the Salesforce platform. Life, P&C and Group insurance carriers can now leverage the world's leading CRM functionality and the trusted cloud platform for industry-specific transactions like quoting a policy, changing a beneficiary or setting up a payment plan. With the addition of automated claims management, Vlocity now has a robust industry-specific solution for each stage of the insurance customer journey.

"Vlocity is pushing the boundaries of the customer experience across all stages of the customer journey with deep, industry-specific functionality," said Jeff To, global head of insurance at Salesforce,  "We are excited to support their new claims features that help meet the demands of our customer-centric insurance clients."

The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.
