The SmartRater package consists of 3 major components:
RBMSadmin – the workbench of the product administrator, acting both as a configuration track & audit tool and as a configuration management (versioning) tool.
RBMSbuilder – enables the product administrator to build and change lines of business, rating schemes and underwriting rules for all types of P&C business, including personal auto, homeowners, liability, personal lines, commercial lines and many others. The design of this component emphasizes functional abilities at the business analysis level instead of at the programming level. This means that the insurance carrier's staff spends most of its time defining business logic instead of addressing technical issues.
ProductRater – the online rating engine executes the rules set by the RBMSbuilder. The rater provides XML web services to integrate with 3rd party systems for various functions: quoting, rating policies, endorsing, etc. Based on web services and component-based modular design, the product is available as a scalable enterprise solution allowing for a phased horizontal or vertical implementation in support of future growth.
