The web based system can be plugged into an existing claims system and will allow either a ‘tele-claim’ (where the claimant is on the telephone) or ‘online’ where the claimant is able to login online to answer a set of questions relating to their claim. The answers to the questions will then be automatically assessed and an immediate decision made by the system knowledgebase whether to (a) settle the claim for a certain amount, (b) investigate the claim further or (c) decline the claim.

A number of different question sets can be developed for the different types of claim the claims handler have to deal with. These question sets can be tailored to fit the specific requirements of the scheme and amended on a regular basis ensuring the decision process is optimised.
