Does anyone use 'xStream'?



We are looking at general upgrades and xStream has come up. My understanding is that most businesses use it to facilitate 2-way aggregator based calculations. I'm more interested in the statement on the fact sheet that says 'Enables marketing lists to be easily imported making the creation of records an automated process.'


Does anyone use it for this or any other applications, as it seems like to could be really useful - I just haven't completely worked out what for!

Hi Mark,


We have deployed x-stream for one of our broker clients.  We created an application for their haulage clients whereby the Haulier logs in online to report any new accidents.  X-stream is used to import the new claim and create/update a claim record directly into the Open GI back office system.  Going forward we will be expanding the application to record fleet vehicle adjustments.  In essence x-stream can be used to import and export data and is especially useful when used in conjunction with Infocentre plus.  Hope this helps...

Hi Mark


We use X-Stream as part of a bespoke development so we can create/update clients/policies en masse for bordereaux schemes e.g. we receive an excel sheet from broker with a month's worth of NB data and we run it straight into BROOMS via X-Stream to create the client/policy files.


Hope this helps.

Thanks for your responses. So I've been chatting to our office manager and have come up with the following ideas:


1) Automatically sending client data for breakdown and key care sales to the insco.

2) Automatically chasing client for mileage reading, agreed value, POB, licence etc and having a web portal for clients to input them via.

3) Creating APM records from marketing emailers sent out and responded to.


Looks like it could be a handy bit of kit.

It can be very handy and one of the better things OGI have produced in recent years. I am not so keen on their pricing strategy i.e. charge per new record created in BROOMS which in effect means OGI are earning commission on every policy you write via this.....

There are a few "tools" that OGI have up their sleaves - you just need to know how to apply them / in the most cost effective way


Further to your other post - would be interested to see the list that amounts to £32k! - Some list - and some ROI / CBA for the business to swallow.

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack.
