Always Striving to Exceed Expectations, Philadelphia Insurance Companies Partners with Hi Marley

The Tokio Marine Subsidiary Introduces Two-Way Texting Capabilities to Improve the Customer Experience

Boston, MA – November 30, 2022 Hi Marley, creators of the only insurance-focused collaboration platform powered by SMS, is proud to announce its partnership with Tokio Marine subsidiary, Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY).

Headquartered in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, and strategically located across the US, PHLY has delivered superior customer service for more than 60 years. The premier national P&C and professional liability insurance carrier continuously reviews its business processes and explores innovative ways to improve efficiency and ease of doing business.

“As we excel and grow as a carrier, we’re reinvesting in tools that will help us continue to improve the customer experience at scale,” said John Tobey, Assistant VP of Claims Operations at PHLY. “During our pilot with Hi Marley, we proved our hypothesis that text messaging is our customers’ preferred communication method. Our employees loved it, too. Hi Marley’s innovative SMS platform helped us streamline communications, reduce phone call volume and simplify operations, saving significant time and allowing us to resolve claims faster.”

As a member of the Tokio Marine Group, PHLY is committed to the Good Company philosophy: “look beyond profit, deliver on commitments, and empower our people.” To start, PHLY will roll out the Hi Marley Insurance Cloud to 200 users in its auto and property groups, empowering employees with tools and insights that improve the claims experience and create better outcomes for customers.

The Hi Marley Insurance Cloud will give PHLY employees the ability to:

  • Send outbound messages to customers and receive real-time alerts for inbound messages, streamlining communications.
  • Easily share and capture documents, photos, videos and other media files related to the claim using text messaging, making processing claims easier.
  • Increase efficiencies with message templates, scheduled messaging and shared case notes.
  • Break down barriers with the translation feature that translates conversations in real-time across almost 20 languages.
  • Mitigate risk with automated documentation of SMS conversation transcripts, permission settings for case visibility, redaction, audit logging, opt-in/opt-out support and much more.

One of PHLY’s core values is “strive to exceed all expectations: good just isn’t good enough.” A testament to this value, PHLY has achieved a 96 percent customer satisfaction rate. With Hi Marley, PHLY will continue to exceed customer expectations by communicating with customers the way they prefer, ultimately driving more positive experiences.

“It’s been incredibly rewarding to work with such a forward-thinking and collaborative carrier partner like Philadelphia,” said Bryan Ginsberg, Senior Client Executive at Hi Marley. “Ensuring the configuration of the Hi Marley Insurance Cloud fits their workflows, preferences and business needs required a true partnership. We are so proud of the results and appreciate the trust the team at Philadelphia put into us.”
