Not only does Crawford iQ™ represent our suite of technological systems and service, but it serves to solidify our commitment to increasing efficiency in service delivery and client accessibility of pertinent data, and the enhancement of our ICT capabilities. Within the last few months, Crawford has made considerable strides on this front through the development of our data analytics capabilities with the establishment of the Command Centre and the launch of Crawford iQ Portal™.
The Command Centre, home of our Business Intelligence Unit, is powered by Crawford iQ Analytics™ – it serves to support proactive file management, catastrophic event response and other key service-driven functions, including stewardship reports, KPI reports, exception reports and dashboards. The benefit realized by our clients is the ability to access readily available key claim file data and benchmarks enabling them to engage in effective risk management and promptly respond to their insureds’ request and claims handling needs.
“The Command Centre represents a key component of the Crawford iQ™ suite of tools, which have been further developed to enhance the customer experience through the efficient management of claim files and real-time access to pertinent information,” said Pat Van Bakel, president and chief executive officer, Crawford & Company (Canada) Inc.
Further to this, we recently launched Crawford iQ Portal™, an enhanced version of our CMS Claims Management System™ web portal (formerly www.claimsmanagement.ca). The Crawford iQ Portal™ provides our clients with a gateway to access the work we do for them. The enhancements made to the portal serve to heighten our clients’ experience and capabilities.
“We remain steadfast in continuing to enhance and evolve our ICT capabilities to enrich our customers’ experience. We look forward to sharing future developments with you,” added Van Bakel.
