Kiln Uses Software Specialist Sequel to Boost its Performance

 

NewswireToday - /newswire/ - London, United Kingdom, 2010/03/19 - Kiln has just completed a key project helped by insurance software specialists Sequel. It can now extract the data from their system to produce Lloyd’s Performance Management Data (PMD) reports much more quickly.

Kiln, the international insurance and reinsurance underwriting group has used Sequel’s Eclipse Underwriting application to automate and speed up its PMD reporting.

PMD reports are used to benchmark and monitor performance against business plans and peers, and are a requirement of all Lloyd’s Managing Agents. They concentrate, in detail, on premium income reporting and give Lloyd’s a clear understanding of the movements in premium volumes in the market and in particular the causes of rate movements.

The joint project, which ran through the last quarter of 2009, replaced spreadsheet-based manual processes. It integrated the PMD process into Sequel’s Eclipse Underwriting software which Kiln use to record the data behind their underwriting activity. Kiln is the Managing Agent for five syndicates at Lloyd’s.

Kiln’s Group Director of Underwriting, Richard Lewis, says: “We have worked with Sequel on a number of projects over the years, and I felt confident that they would produce a good result. They were able to look at everything in depth, often foreseeing problems and solving them before they arose. The result is a significant gain in terms of accuracy, reliability and efficiency. There is no question that we have made significant man hour savings but, more importantly, we can rely on the fact that we will have these reports on time.”

“We believe other Managing Agents could benefit from the work Sequel has done for Kiln, and help them to meet Lloyd’s premium income reporting requirements. Lloyd’s now requires a greater level of detail for these reports,” says Michael Graham, Director, Sequel.

“Carriers without fully automated PMD systems are under pressure - most are struggling to produce accurate and timely reports. Manual processes typically rely on re-keying data into error-prone spreadsheets.” Graham concludes.
