WATERLOO, ON and BOSTON, April 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Hi Marley is proud to announce its partnership with Heartland Farm Mutual to offer Heartland customers advanced communications options for their claims and more. Hi Marley's innovative texting platform is helping Heartland modernize the way they communicate with their customers.
The insurance industry has used traditional, and now antiquated communications methods to resolve both complicated and simple customer issues and questions. Claims representatives spent excessive time attempting to connect with customers – resulting in endless phone tag, long customer hold times and piles of voicemail messages. With Hi Marley, Heartland Farm now conveniently engages customers via text message, which increases time to settlement, provides clear insight into how claims are settled, and substantially increases overall customer satisfaction.
"Being in the insurance industry for many years, I have seen first-hand how difficult communication between insurance providers and policy holders can get," said Rocco Neglia, Vice President, Claims & Loss Prevention at Heartland Farm Mutual. "Our goal is to communicate seamlessly with our customers and real time two-way texting is the solution."
Hi Marley's platform is currently being rolled out to all of Heartland's customer-facing claims representatives across its claims organization, with plans for further deployment in subsequent phases.
Heartland Farm is also using Marley Mobile, the mobile app specifically designed for field staff. The mobile app brings the field team into the conversation faster; the communication is done through the app and conversations, documents and photos are automatically uploaded into the customer's file. It's better for the customers and makes reps' jobs easier, too.
"Hi Marley is solely focused on the insurance industry," said Neglia, "That's important. They are knowledgeable of the problems unique to insurance and are dedicated to solving them." Hi Marley's platform will support Heartland's team in providing a superior customer experience through fast contact, improved settlement time and increased visibility into the details around settlements."
"We've enjoyed getting to know the Heartland Farms team," said Mitesh Suchak, COO of Hi Marley. "We admire their commitment to innovation, challenging norms in the insurance industry, and to providing their customers with an experience that makes them love their insurance relationship. We're excited to see how Hi Marley will help Heartland exceed their customers' expectations." Being Canadian himself, and with Hi Marley having roots in Canada, Mitesh was also thrilled to be adding another Canadian partner!
