Why use SolveXia for Reinsurance Bordereaux?

Collect and validate administration system data (in any format), assign treaties as per your rules, perform all required aggregations, calculate premiums and securely distribute results.
Simplify your Bordereaux
Treaty rules are encoded as a single line of formulae in a rules table, making it very easy for (non-IT) staff to maintain and for auditors to review
Enforce data quality & rules
Enforce checks such as identifiying policies that are linked to an out-of-force policy or customers that have an aggregated retention which exceed limits etc.
Scale for new products & treaties
Adding new or changing existing products and treaties is made simple with the use of centralised and structured “rules” tables.
Audit trails and documentation
Changes to business rules, treaty calculations and data are recorded and can be reported on. Live/up-to-date documentation can be generated at any time which describes the end-to-end process (e.g. to an auditor).
