The portal provides a safe avenue for customers to update their personal information, pay premiums, switch funds, print documents, update beneficiary details, request policy changes and engage in filing claims and processing, which traditionally would take weeks to be executed due to siloed lines of business. The platform also supports automated workflows that are triggered by certain customer activities, which are routed to relevant departments and customers are kept informed via emails or messaging. Providing a portal for customers with the convenience of self-servicing, customers can enjoy the freedom of doing what’s convenient for them, when they want, anywhere.
