A&S (Accounting & Settlement) from TIW is an on-line submission service that uses standard ACORD DRI (Document Repository Interoperability) focussed on the delivery of validated and audited documents to the IMR (Insurance Market Repository).
Ed Slade, CIO Tysers “We looked at various options for connecting to the A&S repository using DRI and decided to use TIW for the versatility of their service and how it will assist with other reforms like Electronic Claims Files (ECF). There was a particular need to consider how, as an organisation, we could centralise, store and audit electronic documents for A&S and ECF. The TIW service offers us a cost effective route to achieving this without significant change to our current processes or further development.”
The A&S process
Accounting & Settlement (A&S) enables the user to process premium settlements and store the relevant documents, filed under a Unique Market Reference (UMR). Broadly there are five key stages to the process:
- Login to the A&S service
- Create your new Work Package
- Choose the documents to support the package
- Submit it to Xchanging
- Receiving the email confirmation
At all points in the process the system maintains a comprehensive Audit Trail which records where a document or documents are in the process.
A&S includes the Work Order for the Xchanging processing teams to process the A&S transaction and uploads claims documents in support of the CLASS (the Electronic Claim File – ECF).
TIW’s services cover the London Market’s electronic requirements without the need for any significant change to your current business processes.
