ORIX Life Insurance Corporation (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President: Kazunori Kataoka; ORIX Life Insurance) announced on December 13, 2017, that it will entrust a part of its insurance administrative operations to transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; transcosmos) and that its new insurance policy applications will be processed at “BPO Center Nagasaki”, one of transcosmos’s operations centers from December 14, 2017.

Since October 2016, ORIX Life Insurance has continued to shift some of its headquarters’ functions to Nagasaki in order to accommodate increasing operations volume and strengthen its business continuity management framework. The operations performed at Nagasaki include call center operations and insurance claims handling. ORIX Life Insurance issued over 500 thousand new life insurance policies for the fourth consecutive term since fiscal year 2013. Now, it will build a new operations scheme to ensure a swift and stable application processing by entrusting the operation to transcosmos.

transcosmos has been offering comprehensive BPO services since it opened its center in Nagasaki in May, 2015. It plans to hire nearly 100 agents for the application processing for ORIX Life Insurance.

Please see below for comments from the two companies about this new service scheme.

Corporate Officer Masayuki Soeno at ORIX Life Insurance Corporation
We have been collaborating with transcosmos to prepare for entrusting transcosmos with application processing operations for new life insurance policies. Now, we are ready to offer our collaborative scheme from December 14, 2017. We opened Nagasaki Business Center in October 2016 and we are pushing forward with our plan to perform more than half of our critical operations in Nagasaki, aimed at “decentralizing operations volume which continues to increase as our business expands” and “strengthening business continuity framework in case of large-scale disasters”. We have entrusted our business operations to transcosmos as part of our initiatives. Going forward, we will expand our business working with transcosmos and prosper together with the citizens of Nagasaki prefecture.

Corporate Senior Officer Hiroyuki Uchimura at transcosmos inc.

Specifically, the Nagasaki center handles call center operations (November, 2016), underwriting (July, 2017) and insurance claims handling (October, 2017).
