Complaint management procedures are increasingly falling under the scrutiny of regulators of the insurance industry. As a result, insurers must demonstrate a systematic methodology for addressing consumer complaints in a timely fashion.
A manual process in which email, spreadsheets, and decentralized communication are the primary tools for execution is difficult to manage to deadlines imposed by regulators, and is unlikely to produce adequate responses and resolutions. Such an approach unnecessarily increases exposure to risk.
Insurers must establish an optimized process for complaint management that is efficient for Compliance and business employees, while reducing non-compliance and reputational risks.
CODE Consumer Complaint Management, powered by the Comply On Demand Enterprise (CODE®) Platform, streamlines the end-to-end process of complaint resolution throughout the organization. The solution installs a best practice methodology for complaint management that mitigates reputational and non-compliance risks associated with complaints.
CODE Consumer Complaint Management enables the firm to systematically capture and track complaints that are reported directly to the insurer or to regulators. The solution provides configurable consumer complaint communication templates to facilitate consistent and compliant communications with the insurer’s customers. Robust workflow and task management capabilities enable an efficient process for the timely resolution of consumer complaints. Full documentation related to complaints and their resolution, along with a full audit trail of the firm’s complaint management practices, is captured in a central repository, enabling ready preparedness for market conduct exams.
To satisfy internal stakeholders and examiners, CODE Consumer Complaint Management provides comprehensive reporting, including standard and ad-hoc reporting capabilities. Customizable dashboards give Compliance and business stakeholders real-time visibility into complaint resolution activities, enabling the identification of potential risk.
