ITSM & help desk enhances employee satisfaction and productivity

Insurance

Business Challenge

India is one of the most under insured nations in the world, and presents some of the highest growth potential for any insurer. However, there are several unique challenges to the insurance industry in India, starting from a fundamental lack of awareness, to government regulations as well as huge rural base, spread across the length and breadth of the country. With de-regulation, private insurance companies have been quick to wake up the market potential, and this is exactly what our customer, one of the leading private health insurers with a unique business model sought to achieve.

With several innovative and customer friendly, transparent processes, they were leading the industry. Tear away growth also brought in some exceptional IT challenges – they were struggling to streamline internal IT service delivery. With a huge number of IT assets in place, IT asset life cycle management was quickly spiraling out of control, leading to losses in efficiency and diminishing returns on IT investments.

Given the huge volume of paper work in the industry, and the daily run rate nature of the business, IT systems availability monitoring was critical to drive business growth and customer satisfaction. There was no proper IT service desk to speak of, and internal dissatisfaction with IT was causing productivity losses, along with poor customer service and response times.
