Bradesco Seguros: Revolutionizing product distribution across channels
Aging legacy systems couldn’t meet the growing needs of customers
Used the Pega Platform to connect systems with common configuration
Increased flexibility and agility in adapting to different journeys of product offerings
“Carrying a variety of legacies made us as a company feel like we had the ball and chain around our feet. A tool like Pega helped us to shift this paradigm, better setting the legacies and showing us our potential capability for integration. ”
The Business Issue
Bradesco Seguros is the largest insurance company in Latin America, with a network of 27,000 insurance brokers. The organization brings in close to $11 billion annually and pays out $9 billion in claims.
Like many companies of this size and scale, Bradesco Seguros relied on aging legacy systems to support its IT infrastructure. In addition, the company was facing increasing demand to distribute products hosted on these legacy systems on several different channels.
Bradesco Seguros used the Pega Platform™ to connect to multiple back ends — with a common product configuration engine built on top of the Pega for Insurance framework. Next, the organization connected its different distribution channels to the Pega Platform, facilitating the construction of solutions for product offerings, quotations, customer onboarding, and policy issuing.
Bradesco Seguros was able to revolutionize product distribution by:
- Reducing lead time to issue a life certificate from five days to one day
- Reducing lead time to issue a pension fund proposal from 28 days to one day
- Increasing efficiency in closing deals from 3% to 8%
