Chaser Letters Sequence

Question

HI

 

we have just moved from SSP M3 to OGI

 

on M3 we had what was called action list ie a sequence of letters used to chase outstanding money or renewal reminders going out 21, 14 ,7 days prior to renew reminding the customer to renew and one on renewal date saying policy lapsed due to none payment.

 

in M3 you set the date of the first letter the rest  came out automatically when we ran the action list each day then you check to make sure payment had not come in that morning before posting the letter.

 

I have asked OGI help desk and they are not aware if the OGI system can do such a thing, i'm  not convinced by the reply.

 

we have talked to some OGI brokers who are telling us they are using manual diaries for renewals etc which seems to many steps backwards rather than forward

 

we are also having trouble understanding how the diary works as this also seems to be a long winded process compared to the old M3 diary system

 

can anyone help us out please

 

Regards

Hi Paul

 

Just to confirm what to do and where to find it...

 

Menu 4 (Core Maintenance, was Brooms Maintenance for those without the newer Core updates).

 

Choose "Chaser Sequence Maintenance"

 

In there are all the options you'll need but to get you started pick "Create Sequence".  In the next box, choose a code (up to 4 characters) whihc will specify the purpose of the chaser sequence, sor "RD" for example.

 

The next screen lets you choose the sequenced letter and how long to give each one a diary period for.  You can choose up to 10 chasers (do not pick the first letter in the sequence though).

 

Once this is done, the user will choose the chaser sequence when creating the initial letter.  Chasers are generated from the Diary or Letter Generation menu (menu 3).

 

Hope this all helps.

Hi Paul

 

Marc has it nailed in his reply - it's pretty straightforward so hope you can work it out from there.

 

On-line guides reference is here 

 

More concerning that OGI Support couldn't help - Tsk Tsk. Possibly the case of them not understanding the question maybe?

 

Similar operation to SSP I'm told. Aggy's hot tips are

  • Do "NOT" put the chasers in the diary as well - as you then have to action twice - pointless if you are supposed to be "automating" the sequence.
  • The last document needs a diary action entry however, so that you can take whatever "action" is needed on the record (Lapse, call etc etc)
  • Keep it simple and do a few test runs on a test client
  • Dont forget to close of the diary if you no longer want to send the chaser letters out!

Good luck - I'm sure you will be pleased with your results

 

Oh - and if you have any other feedback on SSP (good and not so good) I'm sure others would be interested too 

 

Thanks for your post!

    • December 2018 Welcome to Issue No.40 First off, let's start by acknowledging what a great year it has been for the User Group.  We've improved again our relationship with the key operators within Open GI and at the same time been able to make a real difference to our Members. Our recent AGM saw us welcome in a new Vice-Chairman, Tracey Filtness of Coast Insurance.  Tracey has been on the Committee for a number of years already and her knowledge, experience and cool head under pressure will really benefit the Executive.  Full details of your Committee can be found in this Newsletter should you ever want to contact us directly! The AGM was tied into this year's Members Day which I feel was the most successful one I've been involved in so far.  Hat's off to the long suffering Barbara Pena, who once again pulled the rabbit out of the hat and chose the perfect venue for the event.  There's a recap of the day in the Newsletter, so check out what made this event so special. Also, take a moment to see the benefits of Membership, with exclusive discounts from the Open GI Sales Team.  Maybe now is the time to upgrade your system and get some advice from other Users on our Forum.  That's just another great reason to sign up for Forum Access, here.

    • Hi Pete,   We use Truckwriter, and it has never prompted us, they just run out !. having said that while we don't do bucket loads of CV business on EDI, majority of our providers have set the number range at 999999. Is it by any chance Aviva that needs them doing ?, as last week we had to "TRY" and update and issue some new Aviva policy numbers (first time for years) and we still are trying to sort it !, the Truckwriter POS software was confused, all messed up, Aviva didnt know how top reset using RMA commands.   And agree with Mark, it is not connected with Open Suite, it must just be a coincidence.   Happy days.  
    • Hi Pete   Don't know the specifics for TW products as I'm not a low level user operationally   I'll nudge @Philr as he is a top bloke on these things and hopefully he can clarify   PS - I'd be surprised if this is anything to do with OpenSuite as they're not related
    • Hi Guys   on PC policys  the signons will get warnings about the certs going low  giving me time to ring/email the insurers asking for release numbers  before running out.  But on TW (Truck Writer) OpenGI are saying that no warnings for certs and you will only find out when your out.  I cant remember this happening before we upgraded to 5.82  
    • You should have #96 in Prospect Control so all new prospects are checked when created.   You can also set under #97 to also check when converted.    Also, #98 is where you set how often you want prospects rechecked during batch checks.   We recheck all clients every 30 days.
