Big data and Banjo are a perfect pairing.
Learn how Banjo handles daily batches of big data under tight timeframe requirements.
Data-driven, Transactional Insurance Document Logistics
Thanks to the freedoms afforded by the 10th amendment, states are free to govern themselves. And regulations abound from state-to-state dictating how insurance agencies must communicate with their insured customers—both online and by mail. As you know, communicating in this environment is a daunting and complex task. Especially with millions of customers.
American Access Casualty Company (AACC) had that exact problem. A problem made worse by the fact that their traditional partners couldn’t solve it in a scalable way.
Thankfully, Banjo is in no way traditional.
Initially, AACC was very skeptical that Banjo could handle the complexity of the state-specific regulatory data variability. Especially given that the daily volume of mail was anywhere from 20,000 – 50,000 records. They had been trying for a few years with another partner and had not achieved the level of success required by the business.
Because of that experience, AACC moved slowly and deliberately. They put Banjo through its paces–testing it against their most complicated data and mailing scenarios. In the end, Banjo proved to be up to the challenge and AACC chose to proceed with Banjo.
Because of the sheer volume and complexity of the project, our Software Engineering team spearheaded the project. Engineers are great stewards of the unknown: gathering requirements to fill in any gaps, pondering all aspects of possibility, and narrowing the cone of uncertainty until as much of everything is known about the project as can possibly be known. In the same vein, engineers are notorious for their Agile methodologies and can adapt quickly to meet changing expectations along the way.
Ultimately, our team customized Banjo in order to meet very specific AACC business requirements. We worked in conjunction with the AACC IT department to develop the metrics, alerts, and escalation paths to ensure the system’s operability.
In a world where the Big Data wave has crested, you must focus on unlocking the true potential of your organization’s data.
You can continue building all the data warehouses and business intelligence dashboards you want, but if your investment stops at the harvesting or insight stage, you’re not capitalizing on it. Put simply, knowing more about your customers should ultimately provide them a more productive experience with your brand.
