Auto Insurance Claims Processing: Where the Rubber Meets the Road

Auto Insurance Claims Processing: Where the Rubber Meets the Road

VISTA, Calif., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- How quickly and effectively your automobile insurance company handles your claim is the moment of truth when it comes to the quality of your insurer. When service and efficiency come together, it's indeed where the rubber meets the road.

Unitrin Direct Automobile Insurance recently made a major investment in a new Information Technology system, called NSolutions by N'Site, to streamline the process for property damage claims. "We're committed to simplifying auto insurance and our new IT system helps us do that by taking the complexity out of claims processing," said Brian Crumbaker, Unitrin Direct senior vice president, operations and claims. "The system manages every aspect of a claim in real time so we can get our customers back on the road quickly."

By automating Unitrin Direct's workflow, the NSolutions system gives claims representatives the information they need at their fingertips. "This is our primary tool in managing auto damage claims. The N'Site technology gives our representatives fast, easy access to all the data they need to make key decisions on a claim, from the first notice of loss, to towing, rental car coordination, appraisals, repair status and total loss handling," said Joseph Colangelo, assistant vice president, field claims. "We maintain one-on-one personal contact with our customers through the course of their claim and now it's even easier for us to help our customers put the inconvenience of a loss behind them."

The N'Site program runs on Microsoft's.NET OS, so it was easy to integrate with Unitrin Direct's system. "Our NSolutions program is a simple yet effective way for Unitrin Direct to connect, communicate and work with their claims partners, and we're pleased how efficiently the process is working for them," said Sabrina Hightower, N'Site senior vice president of software solutions and lead for the Unitrin Direct integration project team. "We're looking forward to working further with Unitrin Direct as we expand our technology solutions."
