China Taiping Insurance

Mobilising a 200K strong sales force with a dynamic digital tool

End-to-end development of one of the pioneer digital business tools on WeChat that enables mobile efficiency and empowers China Taiping Insurance Company’s massive sales force
Fortune 500 enterprise, China Taiping Insurance, was searching for a possible solution to managing and mobilising their massive sales team of more than 200,000 professionals. They were looking at technology to transition their processes from being largely analogue to highly digital.

They partnered up with Monstarlab China to help make this transformative vision a reality. So, the team set out for an easily adaptable solution for the extensive sales team that simultaneously provides value for internal and external customers. We found that building on the popular super app WeChat was the best option. From this came the development of a powerful and highly accessible management system in the best service of all stakeholders.

The Challenge: Managing and Enabling a Massive Sales Force

The exponential business growth of China Taiping Insurance over the years has seen the company continually expand its manpower as well. Its sales team alone numbered more than 200,000 people in 2015. Consequently, this led to a lot of operational challenges.

Traditional ways of working could not efficiently support human resource functions such as keeping track of attendance, identity certification, work scheduling, and day-to-day office processes. On top of that, conducting product knowledge and client management have also become increasingly difficult to manage.
