The Renewals Process

 

Add-ons at Renewal

 

At renewal you can add new add-ons and/or renew existing add-ons.

On a live policy which has an add-ons frame and a current renewal transaction, you will be able to renew the add-ons by setting the policy Add-Ons field to "Yes" (even though it is already set to “Yes") and selecting the 'Renewal' option. This will be considered renewal processing in Core Back-Office, since the live policy is expected to have been created by a quote engine saving directly to the Core Back-Office rather than creating a prospect policy first.

 

I know this process years old now - but it still rankles that what was a 1 step process has become a non-intuitive multi-step hassle

      ...... by setting the policy Add-Ons field to "Yes" (even though it is already set to “Yes")

 

Really?  Set it to "Yes" even though it's set to "Yes" already - wow - that was thought out really well.

 

Then not forgetting this is AFTER you have created the Renewal transaction ... In old money 

 

  1. Create transaction and associated charges and add-on (LE)

 

Now it's

 

  1. Create the transaction and any charge 
  2. Say "No" to Le if you have it switched in still even though you do want legal ....
  3. Go back and then Update Policy record (if you remember)
  4. Set the "Yes" to a "Yes"
  5. Select the Add-Ons wanted and then abandon them ...  (Exit)
  6. Then Say "Yes" to save

 

And don't get me started on the AE/AD/AF frame combos and all the additional document / frame / coding that needs to go with it

which-is--really-easy-in-Word-and-Ifs-and-also-Tables-work-well-across-Ifs-dont-they -

 

WHAT'S WRONG WITH A STATUS FLAG ON A SINGLE FRAME!!!!

 

Ok - I know it's more complex than that but the main point is - why not just pop the Add-On processing from the transaction create screen?

 

User Experience not good on this one is it - how on earth do you guys cope?! 

 

Sign of a poor UX is sign of a rushed job imho - #agileisnotisolation

 

Rant over - for now

    • 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.
