“It saves us 250 hours a year”

“When we send out a set of policies in the morning, along with a payment link for the premium, we see the first payments come in within seconds. That’s why we love using it so much. It really adds value for our customers,” says Michael Boon of Dekilometerverzekering.nl

Since 2007, Dekilometerverzekering.nl has offered business relations the opportunity to compare insurance policies and conclude them directly. “We offer almost all types of non-life insurance, from car insurance to household, fire and travel insurance. Both to individuals and companies. The insurance world is generally very conservative. Many insurers today still send an invoice with a giro slip. We think this is outdated. We want our customers to be able to pay their premium directly, with a single click,” Boon continues. “It is precisely through digitalisation that we can do the work with 15 people.”

It saves us 250 hours a year

Dekilometerverzekering.nl and PayByLink have been working together for some time. “PayByLink has already helped us with all direct payments of the various premiums. We use iDEAL for this, mainly because in certain cases a premium has to be paid before the insurance takes effect. We are talking about a lot of payments here, so we were looking for a solution to make that process faster and easier,” explains Boon. Previously this was done manually; different systems and email were linked, but all kinds of manual actions had to be taken. “PayByLink has now set up a new MPOS application for us. Simply log in, choose the right insurance, enter the premium amount and send it off. That’s all. This saves us 250 working hours per year!” zochten we een oplossing om dat proces sneller en eenvoudiger te maken,” legt Boon uit. Voorheen gebeurde dat handmatig; verschillende systemen en de e-mail waren gekoppeld, maar daar moesten allerlei handelingen voor verricht worden. “PayByLink heeft nu voor ons een nieuwe MPOS-applicatie ingericht. Eenvoudig inloggen, de juiste verzekering kiezen, het premiebedrag invullen en versturen. Meer is het niet. Het bespaart ons 250 uur aan arbeid per jaar!

Perfect setup

“The system is extremely user-friendly, even for employees who work with it sporadically.” The setup in the background is perfectly arranged, says Boon. “In addition, we don’t want our email to end up in the spam filter. PayByLink has taken care of that as well. The platform also has an automatic reminder system, which also saves us a lot of work. And there is much more possible with the MPOS solution. We are still looking into that, but it depends on various factors.”

Important

Boon has nothing but good words about the collaboration. “The implementation went well. This is partly due to good communication. If there was anything at all, PayByLink was immediately available. My issues were important enough for them to start working on it right away. That is very important to me.”

Recurring transactions: SEPA & credit card via one platform

Collecting recurring transactions is a separate discipline. The amounts have differents levels and frequencies and the customers originate from different countries. In addition, both credit cards and SEPA mandates are being used. This makes collecting a complex business, since a company often needs multiple solutions, each with separate integrations and workflows. Would it not be easy to have one single platform to manage all of this? A small spoiler: there is such a platform.

‘One-time direct debit became too time consuming’

"Our employees at the contact center had more trouble switching to payment links than our guests," says Rudy Herrema, Finance and ICT Manager at Rederij Doeksen, with a smile. "But they also got used to it quickly. PayByLink makes their job much easier."
