Recognizing an opportunity for growth to enhance its market leadership in motor insurance in Vietnam, MIC sought to implement a best-in-class technology platform and transform its motor claims operations.
MIC identified two factors affecting customer satisfaction in motor insurance – 1) the lack of claims transparency and 2) an inefficient survey process.
The motor claims process can be complex and involves multiple parties. At times, cases may be stuck at various stages – be it under repair at the workshop, being assessed by the surveyor, or pending approval by the insurer. With MIC’s existing process being manual and offline, it was difficult to track the progress of every claim. MIC saw the importance of providing a convenient and transparent view of the claim process for its customers, which was currently lacking in its system.
In addition, in Vietnam, surveyors would travel down to the accident scene to assess the damage onsite. It was challenging to track where surveyors were and to determine which surveyor could be deployed based on proximity to the scene. This led to long waiting time and an inefficient use of surveyor resources.
To adopt Fermion Merimen’s digital claims management platform, eClaims which connects all relevant parties in a centralized ecosystem and provides a streamlined end-to-end claims process along with eSurvey solution which facilitates an optimized survey process.
MIC adopted Fermion Merimen’s eClaims platform with eSurvey solution integrated in it within 2 years. Over 1,800 staff across 66 branches in 54 cities & provinces were swiftly onboarded. To achieve a seamless implementation, Fermion Merimen team ran a ‘Train the Trainers’ program and handheld users during the first 4 weeks.
With all concerned parties in the motor claims value chain transacting digitally via eClaims, claims statuses are now updated in real-time, allowing customers to enjoy a live view of their claims status, either online or via SMS notifications.

With the eSurvey solution, recommendations from smart algorithms enable MIC staff to track surveyors’ GPS location and assign the nearest surveyor to each site. Surveyors were alerted in real-time of their assignment and used their mobile phones to view the location as well as upload photos on the spot. This greatly streamlined the survey process and ultimately differentiated MIC’s services in the market.
