Medical and Dental Insurance Provider Increases Sales Volume by 11% the First Year and Improves Profit by $7.5 Million Annually Thereafter

Situation

A Des Plaines, IL non-profit firm providing health and welfare insurance to over 20 U.S. states had seen a steady decline in sales, morale, and employment over a number of years. The COO selected a MetaExpertTM from MetaOps, Inc. to assist them in establishing a program to improve customer satisfaction and unify the workforce to improve company-wide performance in three key areas – process quality, customer satisfaction, and increased sales. The MetaExpertTM led them to improving volume of sales by 11% the first year and a profit improvement of approximately $7.5 million annually thereafter.

Actions

The transformation resulted in:

  • Improved health & welfare sales volumes by 11% over the first full year
  • Employment costs fell by 10% through attrition – no one was laid-off
  • Measured quality in processes improved an average of 35%
  • Customer satisfaction indexes improved 30% to 50% for each measure
  • Employee morale improved and grievances dropped to near zero in the process
  • Estimated profit improvement: $7.5 million annually
Results
  • Measured and improved calls handled per hour resulting in:
    • A 13.8% productivity improvement in 90 days,
    • A $500,000 in annual savings, and
    • Service-level agreement levels remaining consistently at or above targets.
  • Customer satisfaction increased due to shorter handle times and a higher percentage of calls not requiring escalation.
  • The company incorporated the practices MetaExperts™ delivered into their other areas of operations.
