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 Claire,   We took on INVU back in 2008 and still use it today in its Virtual Cabinet guise. No issues with printing from VC whether that be to network printers or pdf and there are also options to send from VC to email which can be useful.    Overall, we remain very happy with VC so have seen no real advantage to move over to OpenAttach.   One little issue is we never managed to get the automatic indexing / filing of standard OGI/OpenWord letters and emails into VC. We just click a few buttons to file them manually.   Happy to chat through further if you wish - I will be at the Members day this coming Thursday    Darren
    • Hi @Clare Carter   I probably cant advise on day to day use / issues, but may be able to help although not sure of your question   Are you still on Virtual Cabinet (VC) and how are you trying to print on OGI - and what / where from   Also - I'm pretty sure there are minimal issues with transferring to OpenAttach - what are the concerns there?  
    • Just wondering if any of the current members have previously been using Virtual Cabinet, and which originally was Invu provided by Linden House.   It is only relatively recently that Open GI have come up with Open Attach but there is an issue in transferring data.   If anyone is still using Virtual Cabinet which evolved from Invu and Linden House, could they let me know whether they had any issues with Open GI and printing.    Thanks
    • Hi Andrew   I do have a copy - but you can get them / best to get latest copy from the support site - presumably you have a registered account??   Just go to the link here RMAR Reports and Spreadsheet   Any problems come back and let me know!
    • Hi   I am new to OGi and not sure how the system deals with the FCA required Client Money Calculation. A previous post mentioned a OGI PDF document detailing the reports to get the numbers and apparently there is a spreadsheet to input all the numbers as well.   Is anyone able to forward the PDF and spreadsheet or provide assistance please.   Thanks
