My Summer Marketing Internship at Silverline

Silverline News

steve

This summer, I was one of two marketing interns at Silverline. My daily tasks focused on conducting market research on competitors and administrative tasks such as configuring Salesforce data. These projects helped me learn a lot more about marketing and also allowed me to get familiar with Salesforce. This exposure further helped me decide my intern-led project to pursue the Salesforce Administrator Certification. On the last day of my internship, I took and passed the exam. It was a lot of hard work, and I am very happy with the way my internship turned out.
I’ve learned an incredible amount throughout my internship, and I have really enjoyed working at Silverline. As a growing company, Silverline provided a very exciting atmosphere and the people there made it even better. Everyone was very approachable, and the unique company work culture facilitated a lot of collaboration. I have really enjoyed learning from everyone, especially my two marketing managers as they guided me throughout my internship. From going to Citi Field to watch a Mets game to working on competitive analysis, Silverline has provided me with a truly memorable summer.

Silverline and PURE Build a Premier Customer Experience

Client News

Learn how PURE is delighting customers, disrupting the market, and building loyalty with Salesforce.

PURE

Privilege Underwriters Reciprocal Exchange (PURE) is a policyholder-owned insurer dedicated to creating an exceptional experience for responsible high net worth individuals and families.  The PURE product suite includes best-in-class, customizable coverage throughout the U.S for high-value homes, automobiles, jewelry, art, personal umbrella liability, watercraft, and flood.

Challenges

At PURE, a top business priority is to create what they call an ‘exceptional member experience’, one that produces member (policyholder) enthusiasm that will yield lasting growth through word of mouth. PURE began using Net Promoter Score® (NPS) to benchmark that enthusiasm and identify ways to create greater value for the membership.

Segmenting PURE’s NPS proved that they create an extraordinary level of enthusiasm and loyalty through the claim process, but that claimants yearn for even more ‘real-time’ information. They also observed that members who never experienced a claim while with PURE generally weren’t as enthusiastic as those who did, prompting them to invest in enhancing non-claim interactions and communication. Finally, a disproportionate share of PURE’s membership is among the 49% of U.S. adults that connect regularly to the internet via three or more devices, and that they needed to better serve them on whatever device they choose.

PURE wanted a secure private member portal to provide members with online access to vital services and information, all from one location. PURE teamed with Silverline to create a member portal to:

  • Support PURE’s commitment to deliver the single best service experience members will ever have;
  • Provide 24/7 access to important information and documents (i.e., policies, invoices, and insurance ID cards) in a secure, responsive, mobile-friendly online environment;
  • Make it easy for members to conveniently manage their coverage portfolio for all policies in a single place;
  • Address the top 20 member service issues and questions, thereby improving member experience while reducing service call volume;
  • Encourage even more members to ‘go paperless’;
  • Eliminate confusion associated with the billing process; and,
  • Enhance the claims process with a transformational level of transparency, real-time information, and human-centric options.

Seizing the Opportunity for Transformative Change in Healthcare

Healthcare

As individuals, we all have that issue, topic, or subject that truly drives us. In most instances, this is an item unrelated to your career and thus requires the unique balance of one’s professional and personal life. However, if you are lucky enough to operate in an environment where these interests align, it tends to breed an escalated passion.

The Healthcare industry is seeing an infusion of people that have this escalated passion. Couple this passion with innovative platforms and applications, and the opportunity to deliver truly transformative change can be realized. This fundamentally alters the way that healthcare is delivered in the United States, from administration and delivery, to prevention and education.

Technology plays a large part in facilitating this change.
