Sometimes even the most successful companies tend to become one of those that start developing standard operating procedures earlier on and consistently iterate solid well chalked out processes throughout their lifetime. A standard company lacking a strong bond of commitment of following up a strategic process will definitely not make it in the long run and will easily lose out to its competitors’ both in terms of revenue and brand. Worse still, some insurance firm who do not realize this waste of time and money earlier on will fail to even identify the blind spots left by these loses in the business processes.
A feeble area in any discipline of a business organization can slow down or even reverse the development of a business into degeneration. An organization that fails to implement a strong BPM (Business Process Management) can effectively reduce the efficiency of a discipline or compromise the communications between the several disciplines, which could ultimately lead to serious consequences. In such a situation, a strong marketing push may lead to a significant up-rise in sales however without the requisite infrastructure to provide a superior level of product or service the company will find its reputation at stake.
According to expert studies, it was noted that many smaller companies develop procedures in response to error and efficient time management, rather than focusing proactively on process management. On the other hand, most insurance companies today have also started delving deeper into this subject and started developing procedures according to the “reactive model”. This approach unfortunately wastes time and money and potentially slows down the company’s growth and development relative to its competitors in the industry. The only solution for such cases of early business process improvement is process standardization.
