Transforming complex analytics for Indian insurance giant

Intellicus > Transforming complex analytics for Indian insurance giant

Making Insurance Accessible with Analytics

At the monthly sales review of one of India’s leading general insurance companies, the National Sales Head has observed a steep decline in the sales figures of a certain region. When asked for lead conversion reports of every agent in his team, the area manager tries to find the answer in his spreadsheets. It becomes clear quickly that the PPTs and spreadsheets do not have adequate drill down capabilities to perform granular root cause analysis. Limited spreadsheet capabilities also make it difficult to conduct YoY analysis on business critical KPIs.

One of the largest general insurers in India, this company operates in the consumer and commercial insurance domains, offering a diverse array of risk management products. With a dedicated team of sales, service, underwriting and claims experts, the company’s vision extends beyond financial metrics. They wanted to make insurance accessible for everyone through strategic partnerships across diverse sectors, an expansive distribution network and a digital transformation initiative.


In the insurance industry, agents and managers must make a lot of decisions on-the-fly. Such a dynamic sales environment requires simple, streamlined and quick analysis. Data processing inadequacies of their legacy system caused substantial delays in operations such as slicing, dicing, roll-up and drill-down. As a result, data trends and emergent patterns were not always available while taking on-field decisions.

Despite having an enterprise-level database available at their disposal, the insurance giant’s sales team was dependent on the IT department for data access. Preparing consolidated reports could take up to a week and often the data became stale by the time it was used in reviews, leading to ineffective strategy calls.

Even when data was available, it wasn’t easily accessible. The absence of a mobile app for agents translated into low user adaptation for the legacy system. Users created individual spreadsheets, impeding holistic and hindering collaboration. There was an immediate need for intuitive dashboards, graphs and charts for trend recognition.  The combination of these challenges also led to delayed reporting, hampering goal setting and KPI establishment.

Data mismatches from the fragmented spreadsheets resulted in inconsistent answers to critical business queries and erosion of data trust.
