Business Challenges

Being one of the leaders in Life Insurance spaces in India, HDFC Life has its unique business challenges that were affecting their customers' experience. They were facing frequent transactions drops mainly due to link failures while connecting to multiple payment gateways.

There was also no readily available analytics to comprehend the end to end customer transaction lifecycle that can help them to know the reason for dropping or to work on to improve the conversion as well as the retention of their customers.

HDFC Life Insurance was searching for answers to critical business questions
  • At what step in the payments process are transactions most likely to fail?
  • How to reduce transaction drop off rate?
  • How to analyse the payment behaviour of customers?
  • How to increase the persistency ratio?
  • How to increase the renewal premium collection?
  • Are there any other revenue opportunities?
