NelsonHall, the leading global BPO and IT outsourcing analyst firm, has launched a new tool to assist strategic sourcing managers in assessing vendor capability in Property & Casualty Insurance BPO for the automotive sector.
The NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment Tool (NEAT) for P&C BPO in the automotive sector is now available to NelsonHall clients, and is also available for a period free-of-charge to buy-side organizations through NelsonHall and through its partners SIG and SSON.
The tool covers a number of P&C BPO business situations, including the provision of end-to-end P&C BPO processes for the automotive sector, specific focus on claims process improvement, reduction of customer churn through improved service levels, and activity in support of improving the underwriter’s use of time and efficiency.
Suppliers of P&C BPO in the automotive sector covered by this NEAT evaluation include CSC, Cognizant, EXL, Genpact, Infosys, Innovation Group, MphasiS, Quindell, Sutherland, TCS, and WNS.
The NEAT tool for P&C BPO in the automotive sector is part of NelsonHall’s "Speed-to-Source" initiative.
The tool sits at the front-end of the vendor screening process and consists of a two-axis model: assessing vendors against their "ability to deliver immediate benefit" to buy-side organizations and their "ability to deliver innovation in support of client-specific requirements".
The NEAT evaluations are based on a combination of interviews with the vendors and their clients. The vendors are scored against a wide range of criteria, establishing a number of scenarios, each representing a different business situation or client business need.
To add further value, the NEAT tool enables buy-side organizations to input their own weightings and tailor the P&C BPO dataset to their specific requirements across 40 individual vendor evaluation criteria.
Using the interactive web-based tool, sourcing managers can configure the NEAT evaluations in accordance with their own priorities and business requirements for service offerings, delivery capability, customer presence, benefits achieved, and other criteria.
