MFX today announced it is partnering with DrivenBI and Return on Efficiency, empowering their customers to uncover deeper analytics and operational insights in entirely new ways. MFX is offering a one-stop shop for its customers by unifying, analyzing and presenting data analytics from multiple functional areas of P&C insurance operations in shareable and actionable report snapshots and a real-time intuitive dashboard experience. The self-service analytics platform is thoroughly incorporated within MFX’s proven Integrated Insurance Platform (IIP) allowing end-users to “socialize” their actionable data analytics, acting immediately on their results to send alerts and notifications, delegate tasks, and share commentary. MFX will turn its depth and breadth of transactional information into operational, living reporting and insights, as defined, and created, by their end users themselves.
“MFX is very pleased to be working with DrivenBI and Return on Efficiency to bring a new level of business intelligence and reporting capability to our clients,” said Raymond A. Roy, Chairman and CEO of MFX. “Being able to access, manipulate and report on available data is crucial to today’s insurance carriers, particularly when data is transformed into usable information that can help our clients better manage their businesses. DrivenBI and Return on Efficiency understand that need. Their reporting and analytics tools, in conjunction with our end-to-end IIP, will truly enable our insurance clients to access this information more quickly and provide to them a superior level of service, allowing them to better understand and grow their business in new ways.”
“We are excited to partner with MFX and Return on Efficiency and to incorporate the next generation of self-service analysis engine, SRK, into MFX’s IIP platform because we believe that SRK’s user-driven data analytics raises the bar on how MFX customers will achieve the best insights into their operations, simply, elegantly and in a fraction of the time of other solutions. Our goal is to make data analytics work for business users, not the other way around,” said Ben Tai, CEO and founder of DrivenBI.
“By allowing its end-users flexible access to the wealth of information available in their IIP solution, MFX will quickly have a significant competitive advantage and provide additional value to their customers”, said Richard Eichen, Managing Principal of Return on Efficiency, LLC. He then added, “We leverage our Insurance operations and technology knowledge with SRK’s rapid implementation capability to build and launch user-driven data analytics and dashboards at our clients in significantly less time and cost as compared to other solutions.
Helping you meet your goals and needs is our culture and focus. Founded in 2001 and a wholly owned subsidiary of Fairfax Financial Holdings LTD, MFX combines the deep industry and technology experience of its employees with our culture of agility and business model flexibility to service all of our valued clients.
