An ideal case for a digital claims platform & comms hub that lets pet owners self-service FNOL via the insurer's website, process the claim from phone and tablet, orchestrate diagnosis, prognosis and actions and settle vet's bills directly.
An Amazon user experience and care & attention of an insurer combined.
