Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company Purchases Experian QAS Software to Improve Data Quality

Insurer Expects Address Verification to Improve Staff Efficiency and Customer Service

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 7, 2011) - Experian® QAS®, a part of Experian Marketing Services and a leading provider of address verification software and services, today announced that Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company has purchased QAS Pro On Demand for its policy administration system and Website. The address verification product is expected to reduce the amount of returned mail and assist with rate determination.

"We had an address verification solution, but we needed something that could verify Canadian data, provide geocoding capabilities and function in a software as a service environment," said Barbara Van Dinter, project manager, Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company. "We receive about 200 pieces of returned mail per week, and that takes about three full days to reprocess. With the new software in place, we expect to see less returned mail, which will improve staff efficiency and customer service."

The Experian QAS tools are expected to ensure the delivery of policy materials, bills and claim-related documents. It will be integrated with the policy administration system and used on the company's new ecommerce Website.

"Accurate data helps insurers with a host of business processes, from risk assessment to document delivery and compliance," said David Northridge, vice president of client retention, Experian QAS. "High-quality contact information helps organizations gain a single customer view, which helps improve business efficiency and customer satisfaction."
