Vendor Management & Order Processing...
how it all started.

When we first launched this effort, it looked like a straightforward workflow automation task.  It didn't take us long to find out it was much more than that. 


Here's the thing, adoption by the users is what drives successful technologies.  Unfortunately, in many claim organizations, the knowledge is tribally-based with little formal documentation.  Consider this, one adjuster had a notepad with 60 pages of rules he had to follow; and he was one of 400. Another workflow change was the last thing they were looking to deal with.


Finally at one of the early meetings, one of the key users told us clearly, "Look, if this can't be easier than the telephone, we don't want to be bothered by it."  Sure, they weren't thinking about the larger picture of what automation could deliver, but that didn't matter.  The benchmark was set.


What a challenge!  How do you make a technology that's easier to use than the telephone?

After 12 months of working with a team of adjusters and nurses from multiple offices around the country, we finally made their passing grades. We studied the multiple complicated processes and how noise and errors creep into the process.  We also explored what made the telephone so attractive.  Then we applied the power of modern technology to create, in cooperation with the adjusters and nurses, a process that they finally judged to be better than the telephone.

At the end of the day, we created a marvelous piece of technology that has been adopted as a best-in-class solution for managing vendors.
