Reinsurance Data Solutions Provider

Successful Fold-in of an Accident and Health Book of Business

To increase the efficiency of contract management, accounting handling and claims processing, this top 10 global reinsurer engaged Jean Edwards to manage the fold-in of the Accident and Health reinsurance books into the company’s main business process. This integration included business process definition, data migration and roll out across three continents.

What did our client achieve with this?

  • Optimisation and streamlining of the underwriting process
  • Data migration of three legacy systems into the world-leading reinsurance application, SICS
  • Supporting the transition through the provision of training and full post-implementation support
  • On schedule system implementation and delivery in a heterogeneous system landscape
  • Confidence and efficiency for users delivered through the implementation of a test automation solution to meet complex test requirements

Document Extraction, Ingestion and Automatic Updates

We noticed that a typical bottleneck, and significant cost, for many of our clients comes at the point of manual data entry. So much of today’s reinsurance still starts with a document. Jean Edwards developed their own solution to this problem; the Alpha platform.

Alpha’s AI helps to read, understand and automate document processing – including pushing records to or updating any line of business system, directly from the Alpha user interface. Alpha can read slips, claims and accounting documents and integrate with any other business process – or drive them with AlphaTasks, a richly featured task manager which can manage and model complex businesses workflows.

They are familiar with insurance and reinsurance from an underwriting, financial and operational perspective, and have a keen understanding of business drivers. They pursue strategic and tactical solutions with energy, drive and a focus on business goals.

London Market Services

With over 60 years experience in the London Market between our senior consultants, Jean Edwards has assisted clients with:

  • Moving EDI processing from legacy systems to new solutions
  • Upgrading from LM EDI to ACORD XML messages
  • Validating and migrating legacy contracts onto more efficient systems

  • Aiding companies in data analysis for moving syndicates into RITC
  • Providing support for Lloyd’s returns and assisting in efficient processing of London Market bordereaux

Document Management System Migration

As brokers and managing agents have merged over the decades, many documents are held in legacy document management systems which are now reaching end-of-life, with little documentation around their implementation and filing rules. Often, many will hold documents from past migrations, contain poor quality metadata or refer to obsolete back-office systems.

Specialising in analysing and migrating documents from these systems, we have a suite of tools which are used to provide a determination of the data quality within these systems and a robust methodology which can be used to transfer the documents and ensure the metadata is extracted, cleansed, transformed and correctly migrated.

Working with systems ranging from bespoke repositories to Sharepoint, we can help you hold all your data in a single place and decommission legacy systems and reduce frictional cost.

Jean Edwards also has a dedicated and proven product – ALPHA – which can automatically read and analyse unstructured documents.

Recovery Calculation

A key issue, especially in syndicates with a large legacy book or substantial RITC, is ensuring that recoveries from insurance claims are correctly discovered, calculated and presented in the format required by the reinsurer.

Jean Edwards can assist by examining your inwards and outwards books of business and provide an overview of contracts with potential recoveries, checking existing recovery calculations, and automatically linking legacy inward claim movements to appropriate outward contracts.
