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.

So, grab a coffee and take 5 minutes to see why being a User Group Member is so important and remember, we're here for you.

    • So #BIBA for Real is back! Anyone else going?    Handy Tip - "Speak to more people you don't know, than those you do know"   You can thank me later - with flowers 🌻 💖
    • "Warning re Sanctions Checks on #OpenGI"   This post is now available in the Public area of the Forum for review and comment 
    • Great to meet back up with the Open GI User Group Committee after soooooo many sessions on remote links   Breaking bread face to face is much more pleasant than a cup-of-soup in between video chats    Exciting times ahead for members and lot's of new stuff coming from Open GI
    • So - what is the point of this ..   Don't tell me even if you say "Yes" - it's actually being ignored?   Why would anyone restrict Sanctions Checks to specific Client / types - let alone specific Capture Page Layouts - SURELY a Yes/No per Client / Contact - and the existing global parameters - covers all the bases. Oh and where in the manual did it not explain this?   Either way - the Yes/No below is at best misleading for operators and at worst - a breach for the business!! Who's picking up that cost ...  
    • So, we find ourselves in modern day unprecedented time.  Governments around the world are applying strict sanctions against Russian companies and individuals and it's being made very clear that action will be taken if those sactions are ignored.   For most of us, this will not be an issue but what if you do have a sanctioned individual or company?  Are you checking?  Are you relying on Open GI Sanctions checking?   First of all, have you got Broker and Prospect Amendment completed under sanctions checking to review Commercial Risks?  Using the Level 1 Contacts on a Commercial master frame will also Sanction check whoever or whatever you put in for review.     However, what about your personal lines clients?  The client level is checked sure, but what about the contacts you've added??  Well, if you're not aware, be aware.  They don't get checked.  So, if you've corrected added a contact for a joint policyholder on a Home policy for example, just hope you've either got them insured in their own right somewhere or that they are not called Abramovich!     The point of Sanctions checking is that you have a record of the checks, in the event of something being highlighted.  Open GI have gone to the trouble of making this work for the Commercial risks but not Personal Lines.   However, your User Group Committee have raised this issue and will continue to apply pressure until something is done.
