Helvetia Seguros Improves Incident Management Programme Through iSOCO Semantic Technology

The insurance company has added semantic technology to its incident management application to improve its service and facilitate access to information for its employees. The solution enables more effective searching in the system, displaying similar cases and useful related content.

Sant Cugat del Vall├ęs, Spain, March 18, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Helvetia Seguros has decided to take advantage of the new possibilities offered by semantic technology in the optimisation of customer, employee and provider relationship processes. To do so they placed their trust in the semantic search engine of the semantic web and artificial intelligence firm iSOCO, with the aim of improving the insurance company's current incident management system.

The result is a platform that gains efficiency by integrating all the recorded incidents and additional useful content. When a title or description of a given case is entered, the application deploys a tab with all the similar results detected in the system; it offers a list of responses arranged by the relevance of the content; it identifies synonyms and morphological variations; it includes a cloud of more relevant terms in the list and it adds an autofill function which shows the most popular information as the query is typed into the search box.

All of this is possible thanks to Naveganza, a semantic search application developed by iSOCO which analyses the user's information and suggests content more closely related to each new incident that is entered into the platform, on the basis of a knowledge map. With this solution, Helvetia Seguros facilitates access to information for its employees, thanks, in part, to the system that recommends similar responses during the process of entering new queries.

"By using the iSOCO tool, we have enabled employees themselves to frequently find the solutions to their problems, since they often consist of repetitive issues resulting from incomplete knowledge of the systems or applications. Consequently we have sped up the response time to employees when the situations really are different, thereby notably improving the productivity of the team that works with the incident management tool and, in short, improving users' appreciation of the tool and of incident resolution." Mr Victor Lopez, Director of Information Systems at Helvetia Seguros.
