One of the UK’s largest self-invested personal pension providers introduces automated electronic classification to streamline workflows and improve customer service
London, UK, XX Month 2012: Capital Capture, a specialist in electronic capture services across financial services and insurance markets has been appointed by James Hay Partnership, one of the UK’s largest self-invested personal pension providers, to streamline manual administration by improving routing speed and accuracy. After implementing Kofax KTM, an automated document classification solution, the firm now routes 75% of all incoming documents automatically.
James Hay Partnership administers £14 billion of assets and services over 45,000* clients. On a weekly basis the firm is challenged with manually managing approximately 4,500 incoming documents. The organisation wanted to reduce its administration processes, to free up staff to focus on core business activities and improve customer service.
“We chose Capital Capture to design and install an automated document classification solution as we were already using Kofax Capture, to manage our existing scanning process. So it made sense to enhance our legacy process and select the classification and indexing module Kofax KTM to address our routing accuracy,” says Iain Tait, CIO at James Hay Partnership.
Shortly after the installation of KTM, 45% of all incoming documents were being automatically classified and through continuous training, this quickly increased to 75%. Just 11 weeks after implementation, the solution now handles all automated classification by identifying key words, numbers and phrases within incoming documents.
“Once indexed and classified within Kofax KTM, individual pieces of electronic mail are then routed into the firms internal work streams and to the correct account executive,” says Mark Kirpalani, managing director, Capital Capture. “By working in this manner, it becomes easier to handle greater volumes of documents, which is particularly helpful as the business continues to grow.”
Justin Goldsmith, IT Development Manager at James Hay Partnership adds, “We are extremely pleased with the initial results and the firms target of reducing its routing speeds by 60 minutes is now highly achievable. And as the classification engine continues to learn an increasing number of file structures, the benefits to our organisation overall, not least of all productivity of our staff, will continue to increase.”
