An expansive national insurer provides expert coverage and risk management services to its member agencies. The rapidly expanding powerhouse enables local, personalized service for clients, adding as many as 5-10 member agencies per month, whose agents craft custom insurance coverage in face-to-face settings.
As the insurance giant gains new partner agencies at a rapid pace, attracted by the company’s combination of deep industry experience and entrepreneurial enablement, growth is booming. The hurdle? Each new affiliate has a different data source system. Gaining an accurate, big- picture business view requires integration of nearly every new partner’s system, each containing upwards of 100 data tables; a challenging but critical task to enable timely, informed business decisions. The company recruited BlueGranite to execute its vision for a single, complete book of business.
BlueGranite designed a unified, scalable enterprise data warehouse to hold both corporate and individual partner data, then incorporated data from the vast network of disparate systems. We’ve also taken measures to create corporate unity downstream; BlueGranite introduced a master data management system to maintain corporate values, provide security, and facilitate protected data sharing.
The company’s ability to uncover insight has advanced by light years in less than one year. In addition to a secure data warehouse, it’s gained a visually rich enterprise reporting system and a cohesive business intelligence environment. A clear window into operations is just the beginning; it sets the foundation to begin exploring analytic opportunities. Upcoming exploration could include uncovering the most successful lines of business and agency partnerships.
This unified system will continue to scale as the company furthers its reach. And BlueGranite will be on deck to facilitate the expansion of this insurance leader’s data analytics vision.
