Rule Book for pricing
Rule Book for pricing is a pricing and quotation tool that has been designed to replace the myriad of pricing spreadsheets that are prevalent in Zimbabwe and general insurance markets.
The Rule Book Maintenance web application provides a browser based interface for administrators of the Rule Book website to manage the distribution and permissions of products via schemes, the creation and maintenance of look-up factors, loadings and reference data via matrices and the management of companies, teams, users and groups that participate on the Rule Book platform.
Being internet based, Rule Book Maintenance ensures a “zero footprints” application base in that it does not require the installation of any software on a user’s PC and requires a minimum amount of training for an administrator to self–serve their use of the configured products in Rule Book.
It can be integrated with the existing Policy Administrator Systems to minimise the rekeying of risk information, reducing the underwriters’ administrative workload and helping to address data quality issues.
Furthermore, Rule Book complements, rather than replaces functionality within existing Policy Administration Systems, maximising the investments already made in technology.
From a management information perspective, it can be integrated with an organisation’s Data Warehouse solution to provide rich pricing and quotation analytics.
This integration ensures that the pricing solution can provide contexts specific performance metrics and pricing information at the time of quoting, facilitating more informed pricing decisions.
It offers a full quote to bind workflow solution and provides the ability to author and produce comprehensive quote documentation, populated with data captured through the pricing process.
Rule Book for Pricing is powered by the Moore Stephens’ Rule Book engine, a strategic tool for the creation, maintenance and execution of complex rules all powered by the latest Microsoft technologies.
What are the benefits?
- Improved pricing: by allowing actuarial and underwriting teams to respond more quickly to market changes.
- Extended deployment reach: of pricing models inside and outside the organisation through a web-based interface.
- Reduced underwriter administrative workload: through integration with Policy Administration Systems and Data Warehouses.
- Improved surety and accountability: of pricing models to meet internal governance and regulatory needs.
- Improved confidence and accuracy: in pricing models through mass simulation of pricing scenarios.
- Reduced risk: from the key man dependencies through auto generated documentation of pricing model
John Stanford, a representative of Moore Stephenes and Chiurunge said CSI, Moore Stephens partnership will greatly impact technology as specialists with an unmatched depth of knowledge of the general insurance sector form synergies.
