About Company

Set up in the California State area, with key offices in Redondo Beach and Woodland Hills, ClaimsXP looks at insurance damage claims for a broad variety of insured residential and commercial properties and presents them with legal representation.

Insured parties delegate their case mediation to the firm for able case representation to study and report the full extent and of damage eligible for recovery. The firm has extensive experience in identifying and categorizing damage types caused by fires, smoke, water, or unforeseen disasters.

Salesforce for Insurance

Challenges Faced

As an established insurance handling company, the claims personnel at ClaimsXP needed to probe both cases and the insurance policy to determine liability.

For this, they needed to communicate with a wide audience of claim holders over emails. This quickly became unsustainable as the number of active claimants grew over time. Switching between the inbox and Salesforce platform for each case inflated handling times and added to operational complexity.

Proposed Solutions

For Tracking Email-driven communications

To start with, we developed Custom Objects called Claim Email over the Opportunity Object with Custom Fields to capture administrative details such as Case Status and Closure Date. The Claim Object’s Records were also meant to be discoverable through Claim Numbers issued to each Opportunity.

Within existing Claim Email Records, new email message histories were appended every time an email with the Claim number in its subject line was sent, received, forwarded or replied to. Message histories were complete with details like the HTML message body, sender, and intended recipients.

For Adding Newer Claims to the Pipeline

Besides the above, entirely new Claim Email Objects were inserted in Salesforce for every unrecognized claim number.
