Cognizant signs partnership with National Life Group to transform its customer experience
Cognizant has announced an expansion of its strategic business partnership with National Life Group, one of the fastest growing life insurance companies in the United States. Cognizant is advising and providing technology and solutions expertise for National Life’s multi-year approach to creating a digital self-serve customer experience, making it possible to securely and conveniently conduct business anywhere, on any device.
National Life’s “Customer Experience Program” was first introduced in 2017 with the goal of creating a seamless experience for customers and the employees who service them. A dedicated team at National Life is focused on addressing customer experience innovation. The team, comprised of Cognizant and National Life experts, is developing new and innovative ways for employees and policy holders to securely check account balances, make payments and conduct other transactions online or through mobile devices.
To date, Cognizant consultants have helped National Life better understand its competitive landscape, define its customer habits, and create a multi-year roadmap for transforming the business’s digital strategy. Cognizant collaborated on the development of a private customer portal and new native mobile app as initial steps. The first tools were launched in June 2018 and continue to be built out and refined. Since then, National Life has seen a monthly increase of 260 percent in self-service transactions and a 117 percent increase in monthly customer visits, compared to its legacy infrastructure.
Mehran Assadi, Chairman, CEO and President of National Life, says, “Our experience working with Cognizant has demonstrated a journey of opportunity and success. For 170 years, our cause has been to bring peace of mind to everyone we touch and to keep our promises. We know that 21st century customers expect convenience. That’s what we have introduced, and it’s a perfect fit with our values to do good, be good and make good.”
