Category Insurance Supply Chain

Extensive experience of product, service and supplier evaluations for travel claims. Multi million pound tenders undertaken and implementation of new providers.


Strategy and procurement

On behalf of a major UK bank we undertook a complete market review of the packaged account provider.

We designed a and issued an RFP and launched a full blown tender process to ensure that the banks customers received value for money. We were able to identify and recommend a new provider and a transformation project launched to move from the incumbent to the new provider.


Sourcing and re-negotiation

The premium high net worth bank asked us to run a market review to ensure that the best customer value was being realised for their premium product lines.

A through market review across multiple brand identities was launched in conjunction with multiple highly involved stakeholders.

Renegotiation of terms and conditions were concluded with all parties very satisfied.


Evaluation and implementation

In many ways the standard travel product is the easy bit. The upgrades (voluntary) and medical conditions (prescribed) are the hard bit.

Working with third party medical assessment providers we were able to navigate our client through industry applied scoring to ensure that we could provide a continuation of cover even with a change of provider.

Full motor claim supply chain experience and demonstrable track record of achievement.


Strategy and management

On behalf of a major global insurer we have designed the repairer strategy, tendered to the market and implemented a new repair solution.

Using multiple data points and sources with target average repair costs we were able to rationalise a network and make operational improvements with target cost deductions achieved. As importantly, we have significantly improved customer service metrics.


Sourcing and negotiation

We have renegotiated multiple glass deals over the years. Because of the nature of fixed unit price deals, a change in book can leave the insurer at a considerable disadvantage. Coupled with rising costs and inflation we believe it is often a requirement to review commercial deals more regularly than previously done.

Changing technology has also led to the requirement for multiple supplier panels which we have successfully implemented.


Design and implementation

Sometimes it’s not just changing the supplier that is required, but the entire process.

And the supplier.

Working with a motor client we completely redesigned the salvage process Starting with when the agent was deployed, to onsite engineering led categorisation, inside storage, and then the auction process.

Not only was the final product exemplary from a compliance standpoint, but returns back to the client were also improved.


Commercial negotiation

Negotiating parts and paint on behalf of a large retail insurer.

Using multiple data points from within the business we were able to renegotiate commercial deals to reflect a growing and changing book of business and make it as future proof as we could.

Having previously worked for contents providers we are uniquely placed to provide insight and strategy for insurers when it comes to contents spend.


Consolidation and procurement

Claims IT in motor was delivered as a programme of works to consolidate outdated technology deals and combat a complex pricing structure that saw overlapping charges at multiple points.

Similarly a consolation of legal firms and introduction of more fixed menu pricing created sizable savings.
