Data Vera for Binders & Pivot Point
A SaaS Solution for Managing Large-Scale Transaction Data from MGA and TPA Partners
For the past 10 years, Data Vera has been utilized by capacity providers and brokers across the globe to analyze and process bordereaux and statements of values. Over this time, the system has evolved to support a variety of products, expanding its usage by including the premium, claims and accounting features of Pivot Point.
CATEX was approached by a large multi-national insurer who needed to manage large-scale transaction data coming from over fifty of their MGA and TPA business partners. The insurer had difficulties managing the intake, validation and downstream processing and analytics of this data at the level of detail desired to effectively manage the portfolio. This project resulted in a 12-month development effort to accommodate the analysis and processing of files with hundreds of thousands of rows of data. The solution is now in production for written bordereau, claims bordereau, paid bordereau, and large multi-sheet policy transaction and exposure files. The solution allows the processing team to ingest and analyze multiple files concurrently, while providing a visual ‘kanban’ workflow to simplify management of files. This implementation has enabled the insurer to shut down an expensive legacy solution. The team is currently working on onboarding partners, and enhancing the solution to enable data management for policy and claims accounts receivables and payables for business billed and collected by their MGA and TPA partners.
