Cognizant Technology Solutions – Digital Operations – TOPS (Transformation of Processes for Success)
Cognizant deployed this one of a kind innovative solution for their US based Life and Annuities carrier operating primarily in the East Coast and Mid-West region. The company was established in 1938 and since then has grown through multiple mergers and acquisitions. This growth lead to disparate systems of engagement and systems of records adding to the product and market complexity. The underlying processes were fragmented and had inefficiencies due to complex rules and procedures with no view across the lifecycle of a transaction on the wait times, exceptions and hand-offs.
Cognizant Digital Operations manages majority of the business processes of this customer with a lot of activities requiring manual input and the expectation from Cognizant is to help meet their strategic goals by near shoring and off shoring multifunctional workflow dealing with new business, post issuance and Agent/vendor management.
We faced challenges in managing the business processes due to the presence of 3rd party applications that were available for a specific duration in a day, not accessible round the clock. These are multiple
legacy systems and require multiple views/entries across different screens to assimilate and process in the desired system & format. This required heavy lifting utilizing manual intensive effort.
Cognizant has helped this customer build and deploy a solution that is an optimal combination of IPA, IT system enhancements and minimalized manual effort that provides a unified platform for seamless transaction processing to overcome the challenge. It took CTS ~17000 man-hours in building TOPS activities pertaining to creating BRD’s, UAT Support, Ramp up & giving Demo’s to the business including the Exec Demo. All this has been done with no impact on the SLA’s.
