ACE Group today announced a significant enhancement to the ESIS Global RiskAdvantage® (GRA) Risk Management Information System (RMIS) that combines meaningful analysis of loss data with the power of Web technology. The enhancement is designed to capture and organize information more efficiently and provide users with instant access to multiple views of their company's claim history via its expanded and fully customizable dashboard. Users can now establish up to four dashboards with each providing unique views into their data; a workers compensation claim dashboard, a quick access to claims dashboard, a financial dashboard, and an expense-monitoring dashboard are four examples of the different ways to create multiple dashboards.
ESIS will present the upgraded technology at the upcoming Risk & Insurance Management Society (RIMS) 2014 Annual Conference & Exhibition to be held in Denver, Colorado, April 28-30, 2014. ESIS GRA representatives will highlight the application and its distinctive features and functionality.
“Risk managers make critical decisions every day,” said David Patterson, Division President of ESIS, Inc. “ESIS is committed to providing our customers with technology tools that help fuel good decision making. Our continued investment in GRA is a tangible demonstration of that commitment.”
The GRA system is versatile, secure and highly adaptable, with recent enhancements that give users the ability to identify trends without the need to generate additional reports. This means users can change the parameters of their analysis as they work. This intuitive and interactive method saves time and further exploits the power of the technology.
“Our goal is to match our technology to the distinctive needs of our clients,” said Lee Farrow, Senior Vice President of Sales and Service for ESIS, Inc. “The views are user friendly and provide multiple ways to link to information on any given day.”
This most recent enhancement of ESIS GRA represents an intensive development effort. “There are many new features,” said Debbie Johnson, Vice President ESIS Business Support Services. “We have totally redesigned our home page by combining home page features and dashboard functionality and providing users the ability to create four different dashboards. Also, report data is now portable, meaning users can take their data out of GRA and conduct extensive drill down or 'what if' functions without the need to generate additional reports."
ESIS is known for its industry leading RMIS system. ESIS GRA can do all of the following:
- Calculate frequency and severity of losses and rank them

- Analyze workers compensation claims to provide repeater and disability duration

As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.
