Bots were developed and deployed in 40 hours to create a claim, generate and send the acknowledgement letter to the insured. Started handling 200–250 transactions per day right at the peak of lockdown. All COVID-19 First Notice of Loss related transactions were handled by the bot there by avoiding any delayed resolutions, which would have impacted customer satisfaction.
