Xuber Launches Configuration Packs for Insurers, Reinsurers

Staff Writer | May 09, 2014

One year after re-launching in the U.S., Xuber announces the launch of built-in, market-specific configuration packs that address U.S. market and customer needs and streamline data entry for specialty, non-admitted lines of business.

“Pre-configuring our software allows customers to implement our solutions by significantly reducing the time required for user workshops and ensuing configuration and development efforts,” says Matt Isaly, head of product strategy, U.S., for Xuber. “These configuration packs are purpose-built for the U.S. market, allowing the business to account for the nuances of their complex risks without forcing data into fields, which inevitably leads to workarounds, ad-hoc modifications, and incorrect use of the software.”

Insurers operating in the U.S. non-admitted market need technology systems that can manage sophisticated requirements such as program structures, from ground up claim calculations including aggregate tracking, ceded reinsurance calculations, premium recognition and earning pattern variances. Xuber configuration packs are specifically designed to meet these requirements.

These U.S. non-admitted market configuration packs are the most recent milestone in an undertaking by the Xuber team to continue to configure its global technology platform to better serve users in local markets. Earlier this year, Xuber launched its first configuration pack for the London market. Configurations for the Bermuda and U.S. admitted markets are slated for completion later in 2014 and early 2015.

“We’re very excited and proud of the progress we have made in the U.S. market since re-launching here last April,” says Craig Robinson, head of business development, North America, for Xuber. “Our continued investment in the core processing technology and our eagerness to tailor our solutions to meet U.S. customers’ needs have contributed to business growth.”

At the end of last year, Xuber announced that Everest Re has selected Xuber for Reinsurers. Executives from the reinsurer said they chose Xuber for its modern technology, robust and configurable functionality, and ability to conduct analysis. They expect this solution will drive greater operational efficiencies and support business agility. Implementation will occur in four stages, with the first phase of implementation for the claims component underway.

Other Xuber highlights since its U.S. market entrance include:

 

  • Introducing Upgrade Studio, a powerful application designed to control and automate the migration process, while reducing the risks often associated with software upgrades.
  • Launching an advanced plug-and-play data analysis tool, Xuber Analytics, to provide commercial insurers with deeper insight into their businesses.
  • Extending Xuber Support+ and Xuber Optimize software support services.

“We feel well-positioned in the U.S., with the Everest Re implementation underway and the discussions we’re having with other prospects who are looking to replace their core legacy systems,” adds Isaly. “Customers are attracted to the highly configurable and flexible features of Xuber's single data platform solution, as well as well our deep understanding of the U.S. market and global support capabilities.”
