Challenge

One of our client working as a third party agent in insurance claim processing business, wanted to develop a website to help him process insurance claims of lost jewelry items. Client's business requirement was to act as an intermediary between insurer, insurance company and jeweler and provide all the necessary support for claim processing through the website.

The client's goal was to automate the claim processing flow as described below:

  • Insurer places the claim with the insurance company for the lost jewelry
  • Insurance company generates the claim id and sends a draft to the client
  • Website will get all the details about the lost jewelry from the insurer and raises the claim
  • Website gets quote from different jewelers and chooses the suitable one
  • Website provides jeweler details and generates an invoice for the insurance company
