At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, when thousands of in-person transactions moved online, we introduced a new self-service claims management portal, mySegdwick, that’s fast, customer-friendly and extremely easy to use.

Portal, mySegdwick’s key achievement has been to onboard 17 major clients and 11,579 insurance customers in just six months.

Over 700 commercial and domestic customers a day have submitted claims, uploaded documents, photographs and videos, changed appointments, retrieved updates and accessed live support 24/7 – covering absolutely everything they needed to do simply, effortlessly and remotely.

“Reduced touchpoints improve the turnaround time and allow for greater efficiencies internally - minimising the costs of handling claims. The proposition is win-win for both us as an insurer and the customer,” John Pyall, head of MGA Cockpit, Great Lakes Insurance SE, UK branch.
