Ohio Mutual Raises Policyholder and Agent Satisfaction
Ohio Mutual Insurance Group, with more than $240 million in premiums each year, introduced online payments in 2013. They understood that as they shifted their corporate culture away from an underwriting focus to one centered on customer experience, they would need to provide their policyholders more payment options and flexibility.
Working together, ACI and Ohio Mutual expanded their payment options, while streamlining their internal reconciliation process, resulting in increases in both policyholder and agent billing satisfaction rates.
“The most important thing is making sure we stay contemporary with the billing and payment options we deliver. With this new system, we’ve done that.“
