Innovation presentation

Walaa is a top tier insurance company in Saudi Arabia, which provides +60 products and services offering, has been experiencing significant growth wherein massive amount of data for underwriting and claims were involved, all of which, were handled through an in-house built system which has its own limitation and restrictions. This has been impacting the overall productivity of the agents due to several reasons such as long time to extract information, manual entries/work, as well as repetitive tasks. This was our drive to better enhance our system capabilities and eventually improve our service quality and customer experience.

By implementing our modernize core insurance platform, we were able to enhance the productivity and improve our processes which ultimately gave us a competitive advantage over our competitors and helped in attracting new customers as well as retaining our customers.
