Insurers can make substantial savings through back office efficiencies, according to Bacs Payment Schemes Ltd.

The use of Direct Debit alone has saved UK businesses £3bn, and the not-for-profit organisation has urged the public and private sectors to look at the back office first when it comes to making savings.

In spring a score of local authorities collectively saved half a million pounds simply by switching their payments to Direct Debit, with savings of £8.7m possible if the entire UK followed the example set.

Bacs’ Insurance Sector Manager Dawneth Perry has said that automated payments can help make a substantial impact in the fight to reduce the country’s deficit.

In a similar vein, Perry urged insurance firms to look at keeping the effect of cost-cutting on core activities to a minimum and focusing upon back office efficiencies to generate savings.
