Aclaimant is an advanced risk reduction and incident management system that enables businesses to prevent, manage, and streamline the claims process for workplace accidents. They serve as a bridge among employees, employers, and insurance carriers to speed up the process of settling claims related to workplace incidents.
The main challenge for Aclaimant was the manual data entry of facts and figures in claim forms. Aclaimant receives forms from both businesses and insurance carriers in PDF format which are then manually transcribed to extract pieces of information that are compiled into a standardized report in CSV and Excel formats. The final report goes into the Aclaimant’s proprietary system for updating records on all fronts, giving all parties a centralized view of the claim’s status, details, and progress. Since the forms came in PDF format, it took hours to transcribe them and create Excel and CSV reports for loading data into the Aclaimant system and data warehouse for further processing. In addition, the changing claim values and other dimensions required updating the system, which meant manually transcribing and entering the revised information.
