Hi Andy. 

 

No - I believe as always its negotiable. So you can spend 2 man days over the next few weeks / months discussing and making a case - and then OGI will go through their internal sign off process and numerous signatories for a couple of weeks. Then with luck you can probably get it with a discount. Go for it and let us know the "price for today" deal. 

 

Option 2 is you can build the frame yourself if you have the skills and time and knowledge - which I know you do!

 

Option 3 - you can get the same functionality delivered for about 87% of the 3yr TCO  list price + consent reports + consent documentation + workflow set-up for capture + cross check code to keep data in line - if you know the right people....

 

It is what it is - and there is a cost to any delivery. Supply and demand wins as always - and I'm sure there will be a level of demand at £2,280 (3yr TCO) from OGI. For the other 90% of the user base, maybe they could start with the User Group

STOP PRESS GUYS!!

 

Always good to get the latest position and full story from the horses mouth so to speak and get the correct version (and the most up to date version) of the truth.

 

Registrations are now "open"  for Open GIs Consent Page Webinar - it's all over Social Media. It will be an Open G-eye opener.

 

So - register and attend on the day and make sure you get the full 3yr TCO numbers for real. While you are there - check what report output is being delivered in the standard price / package so you can analyse your customers preferences once you've got all that data collected. We would love to hear your views and feedback on this latest offering from Open GI - it looks amazing - what's not to like?

Like I said, saw it on Monday. It is a basic data capture frame (with a little validation) anyone with scheme toolkit could replicate in no time.

Hi Karl - yep it's pretty straight forward as you say. There's also lots more to do though - even once you have the £2.3k "frame". 

 

Speaking with a few brokers, they are looking for ease of data entry, methods to track uptake, best workflow practice, report output and data refresh cycle management. I know there is some info from OGI  - and every broker needs to qualify exactly what they are getting for their money. As always - it's best to see it with their own eyes and ask the right questions for their own business so they can make an informed choice - to either 

  • Take up the offer - because it gives them everything they need at an acceptable TCO
  • Build it themselves and try to understand all the peripheral changes required to make it work or
  • Save 87% of the OGI price and go elsewhere using expert advice and delivery of a full solution

The User Group can also assist - although ultimately it would be a self build. A lot of brokers will be happy with that option too

Sorry Karl - wasn't suggesting a "better" version of the truth was available from OGI - just suggesting people can get the full story and pricing from Open GI. Their webinar will be a great opportunity to see this in the flesh - and the value for money in the proposition. X

Hi just wondered if you can assist.  I have managed to knock up the GDPR frame, do you know how I insert this to my workflow in prospect?  We have one like this already but our Open GI trainer set that up.  Thanks in advance if you can help.

Hi Stuart - this depends on what your workflow currently is and, where you want this to be in the workflow - i.e. before quote / after quote / on first contact etc. As always (good thing!) OGI have lots of options (bad thing?). Happy to have a call if it will help.

Hi Mark

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

We would like it after the quote, when we are converting it to make it live.

 

Like i say at the minute we have a frame that appears in our workflow following the quote but I can not see the settings which make this happen

Hi Stuart - then you will want to use either Option 13 or Option 17 in the Prospect Control set-up on the Prospect menu where you can set the screen to appear. Not sure that's the best workflow - as this just saves the preference detail as part of the risk - when you may really want to save client preferences as part of the client detail screens. 

 

There are other options too, if you have Toolkit solutions but hope the above helps!

How do we do this? Can we attach the frame to the client detail screen?

OK - Have a look at Options 83 and 85 in Prospect Control. Again some options - particularly when you get to the live record - but you should be able to set this up to work as you need.

Hi Mark, that has brought the frame across now in the clients details screen now for a new prospect.  Is there a way that the frame can be added to every clients details screen?

Hi - there's no automated way to do this - unless you have additional software from OGI already installed. 

 

Given you have to complete the detail following contact and consent discussions with each customer, there is little point in adding it globally anyway as it still needs to be updated case by case - at a given touch-point. Better to build the "adding and completion" of this frame into your MTA / Renewal processes and track update and completion via reporting methods from the system to ensure you are on target.

 

If this is a "valuable" exercise for your business and you want to promote completion of your "consent" data frame, then why not have a monthly award / voucher based on percentage of data completed per agent / operator?

 

Either way - likely this will take 12 months to capture all the detail - unless you are planning a big bang mass marketing / contact / telesales campaign to every customer you have - as long as they have consented to such contact in the first place .... see ICO Fines here for current practice - pre GDPR :o :wacko:

 

Hope that helps!

Love the monthly reward idea for getting consent for existing clients. Now to add a hidden operator field to my frame......

    • Hi Emily - that's a great use for XStream and there are lots of posts here in the Forum covering a range of areas on XStream use   Given where you are in the XStream process right now I'd suggest a couple of important steps ...   1 - Ask OGI support to confirm that the XStream service is still configured correctly and proven as working  You can waste hours, days and weeks trying to connect to the service and still have issues because it's no longer set up correctly or your infrastructure has changed. Get them to test it and to prove it and make sure you have the access details as well (IP and Port numbers etc)   2 - Use a tool like SOAPUI This will allow you to test the processes outside of the web page and confirm the XStream service is working as expected   Step 1 is a must   Happy to assist further if I can!   Mark   www.OneFiftyPercent.com
    • I am building a new website for internal use, the main feature is to be a lead management system. I would like to use xStream to import client details from Open GI into the website, and to create prospects in Open GI directly from the website.   The problem is that we purchased xStream many years ago to use with a website built for us by a third party, and nobody in our company has had any training on it.   Generally, I think the online guides are excellent and I have always found them to contain enough information required to use any of the Open GI products. However, I've found them rather lacking in the case of xStream. There are example scripts to cover different scenarios for which you might use xStream, which I imagine will be very useful once I've established the link between OGI and our website, but I can''t find any information on how the XML data is actually transmitted between Open GI and a web application.   If any xStream users can give me some pointers I'd really appreciate it.   Thanks a lot, Emily
    • Have you looked at competitors' websites to see what they state they will be doing about it?
    • Great points made - and welcome to the Forum!   I’ve done a few loops round many a boardroom table on the cloud vs local debate. As you rightly point out - you can have as much redundancy as you want in the Datacentre - but what about accessing it in the first place?   As you mention, if you only have 1 firewall / switch / leased line / then there’s a point of failure inbuilt. Just because it’s “cloud” doesn’t mean to say it’s “Safe”   And let’s just overlook the whole local and remote SLAs to go with any architecture.   M   OneFiftyPercent.com
