How can Enterprise Content Management solutions help your insurance workflow?
Insurance companies have long found themselves burdened by mountains of paperwork - forms, claims, audits, case management files and so on. And, in some cases, these documents are all managed by different systems that may or may not connect - creating a logistical headache. The ability to manage this information while managing costs, legal requirements, and pressure from stockholders is becoming more and more of a challenge given the variety of formats that information is served in and the new ways to create it.

How does it work?
The process of enterprise content management for insurance is straightforward in concept. Paper-based information (such as claims, client data, and more) is collected at the first point of contact and scanned into the system. There, industry-leading capture solutions ingest and interpret the data against established rules and templates, quickly returning accurately digitized data that can be exported to a processing workflow. Those workflows, customized for your individual enterprise, can handle any of a number of tasks automatically; accounts payable, manage client data, or even update case files. In many cases they also link documents together, so all information relating to a claim or a payment transaction are available together, without the need to search through endless folders. Operators are only required to step in when there's a workflow exception or a step is designed to require approval, significantly speeding up the process from paper document to usable data. Once those workflows are complete, the data is stored for easy later lookup by those with established permissions to do so.
Though enterprise content management is simple in concept, it's much more complicated in execution. That's why a trusted, experienced partner like PaperFree is your guide for how to maximize the functionality and economies of your content management system.
