And that's exactly where the story of Vicencia & Buckley, a division of Hub International Insurance Services, Inc., takes an extraordinary turn. Their partnership with EOX Vantage propelled them to achieve a mind-boggling 99% reduction in processing time and an astounding 90% decrease in operating costs. But how did they accomplish this remarkable transformation? Let's dive into the details. 

Client Spotlight: Vicencia & Buckley, Division of HUB International

Vicencia & Buckley, a division of HUB International, serves as a crucial link between a specialty insurer and their clients – specifically, scuba diving instructors affiliated with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI). Unfortunately, their existing insurance processing method was hindering their ability to deliver prompt and efficient services.

The Legacy Process: An Inefficient Hurdle

The traditional process was plagued with inefficiencies. Applicants completed online forms that were then painstakingly transcribed into the system by Customer Service Representatives (CSRs). This often resulted in gaps in information, leading to additional back-and-forth communications with applicants. CSRs had to manually cross-reference databases to verify certifications, adding to the time-consuming nature of the process. Payment processing was complex, requiring multiple interactions with customers. The outdated system had its fair share of reliability issues, making remote work nearly impossible. As a result, customers experienced long waiting times, abandoned sales, and growing frustration.
