Focused on reducing the average length of time it takes to clear the entire file. Time begins when an application is submitted by the Agent through the final documentation and post review. This chart demonstrates the length of time it takes to complete the required details (by law) after the file is put into force. If a file had four missing customer-response items, it previously took 117 days to complete the file (average) and with the improvements the new average is down to 65.3 days.

This is a 46% reduction in Pending Requirement processing time.
