Creating and maintaining this web site with proper navigation, data security and efficiency obviously required a detailed architecture, integration with multiple databases, and classification of services for their access control and exclusive logins for Brokers, Policyholders, Providers and Internal Users.

Business Challenge

ShelterPoint (ShelterPoint Life Insurance Company (formerly First Rehab Life)) decided to introduce new Group Vision Insurance with Davis Vision network option effective May 2011.

ShelterPoint partnered with Davis Vision to add a network option to their redesigned policy. As a result of this partnership, all enrollees receive one annual eye exam and lens/frame at no cost from participating Davis Vision network providers. Enrollees can still visit any Vision care provider they choose under this policy but when they select a Davis reimbursement structure that our clients Vision network provider, they may pay less out of their own pocket. The out-of-network component features was to be kept the same as FRL's previous Vision Insurance policy. In response to market demands, all three plans were designed to have options of employer-paid, contributory, or voluntary contribution levels with simple flat rates.

The new Vision policy was supposed to use the same intuitive online quoting and application system that ShelterPoint introduced last year (working with BeyondKey)when launching their new Dental insurance. Producers were enabled to compare Vision plan options that fit their clients' specific criteria, compare rates, and generate attractive quote presentations. The goal was to continue to provide producers with a tool that is easy, seamless, and flexible.

The online system was required to allow producers to save and edit quotes and to auto-populate the online application with saved quote data. After Discount Cards this was planned as second product having a new system that ties together a paperless workflow from quote to policy generation.

How BeyondKey Helped

With a positive approach and well defined processes, the experts from Beyond Key, worked together with FRL and Devis Vision to create clear Requirement Documents, pre-understanding of Insurance systems the target dates could be met with great ease and highest quality.

Results

ShelterPoint could provide their producers more products that are better geared towards the needs of their clients. In less than a year, FRL could launch new and improved Dental and Vision lines as well as a new AD&D rider for our DBL line.

Beyond Key is proud of their spirit and domain - knowledge which sets the pace for other efforts they are working on.
