Description for case is given below :
Deborah McDonald of Upper Canada Insurance (Upper Canada) was reviewing several pieces of data she and her team had spent the last month collecting. McDonald and her team had been asked to address the inefficiencies in the life insurance application process, largely due to the high numbers of applicants withdrawing from the system (known as “wastage”) in the midst of the process. Upper Canada had determined that the most common reason for clients abandoning the application process was the long time required to get a response, followed by lack of communication and poor customer service. It was thought that by solving these problems, Upper Canada could meet or exceed industry wastage levels and improve the efficiency of the sales team. McDonald was assigned the task of analyzing the data and making recommendations to resolve the issues of the application process, but was not certain where to begin.

Description for case is given below :
In market-leading firms, software development was often undertaken by an in-house team to address specific IS needs – in part because nothing that fit these specific needs was commercially available. These projects often ended up taking longer than planned and exceeding ever-growing budgets. In this case, in-house software development was finally nearing completion (over budget and behind schedule) and the beta testing phase, along with some initial ‘train-the-trainer’ sessions, had begun. Not all the first impressions were positive, so when the director became aware of a recently introduced commercial offering that seemed like a very attractive alternative he faced a dilemma: should he abandon the developed project, which amounted to five years of work and over $1 million for a system that may be a better option? The protagonist in the case had done a preliminary functional comparison of the in-house information system and the commercial offering; he recognized that the new alternative might have held some significant advantages for the firm. The potential negative implications for his career and the careers of the people he worked alongside during the development project caused him to think about whether or not he should be informing others within the firm about the commercial alternative and, if he did, what position he should take.

HDFC Life Insurance (HDFC Life) was competing in a changing environment as established banks began entering the insurance business. Even though several brands in the category advertised with different positioning strategies, consumers were not receptive. HDFC Life commissioned a survey that seemed to lead the senior manager of digital marketing to a dead end. The challenge was to introduce a differentiation that could be associated with the HDFC brand despite the limitations of the category and the unreceptive mindset of the target segment. The case also takes into consideration the changing lifestyles of potential insurance buyers in India, their new interest in purchasing insurance online and the complexities of developing a services brand in an emerging market.

Case Solution for Headquarters’ Overhead Cost Allocation at Korea Auto Insurance Co. Inc.

Case Name :      Headquarters’ Overhead Cost Allocation at Korea Auto Insurance Co. Inc.
Authors :           Sangil Kim, Ho-Young Lee, Won-Wook Choi
Source :             Ivey Publishing
Case ID :            909B14
Discipline :        Accounting
Case Length :    08 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
Korea Auto Insurance Co. Inc. (Korea Auto Insurance) incurred both direct and indirect costs. Direct costs were incurred at branches as they performed sales and operating activities, while indirect costs were incurred at headquarters as it supported branches through the activities of the information technology, operating support, investment, marketing and general administrative teams. Indirect costs accounted for a significant part (41 per cent) of the total costs incurred. However, they could be neither directly traceable nor logically related to specific sales activities. Korea Auto Insurance currently allocated indirect costs incurred by headquarters to branches based on sales revenue. Using the amount of sales revenue as an allocation base for overhead was not regarded as a reasonable method by the Taejon City branch manager. Branch managers had complained that the current allocation base was not related to the level of actual benefits they received from the headquarters. They argued that the allocation process distorted the operating performances of branches as reflected in the books. The manager of the Taejon branch suggested that the ABC (activity-based cost) method be applied to solve the problems related to the current overhead allocation process.
