System modules

Module 'Products'

The VVS product definition subsystem is a powerful set of tools that allows an authorized user to develop new insurance products and corresponding tariff rates, with no or minimal assistance from programmers.

The product subsystem is used for definition of all types of insurance (P & C, life, health etc.). Some of the basic elements of an insurance product defined by the product subsystem are:

The product subsystem significantly simplifies and speeds up the process of development, testing and introduction of new products into the production. For simple products, it takes only a few hours to develop a product, from the idea to its use in the production.

New products which are similar to the already defined ones may be very easily developed by means of the copy and change functions. Additional validations, initiating policy variables, computation subroutines, etc. are installed into the product by the UEX subsystem. VVS has its own script language that can be used for these purposes.

The most important advantages of the VVS product definition subsystem:

From the technical point of view, the product definition subsystem is the key module of the VVS system.

Administration modules

VVS contains various support systems. These serve the purpose of supporting employees and the system administrator in maintaining records, managing dates, History and payment transactions as well as the assignment of user rights and document printing.

The following features are required to maintain records effectively:

Displaying an Overview of Records

Records can be selected according to various properties, i.e.:

Basically, records are displayed sorted by increasing creation date.
The overview of records can also be accessed from completely different VVS modules.

Displaying Annual /Monthly /Daily Overviews

Creating/Editing Records

Record Deletion

Record Quitting

Record Answering

Record Forwarding

'History' Service System

History is a VVS service system providing the capability to record all events related to a contract, benefit claim or person in chronological order. History records of certain important actions are created automatically by VVS. The History functions can be used to observe the chronological development of essential business and customer operations.

History entries can also be created manually. Automatically generated history entries cannot be deleted manually.

If all Forms are printed, this event is automatically recorded in History.

Each History Entry entry can contain the following data:

The object key can consist of various criteria, i.e. policy number, benefit claim number, customer code number, etc.

The possibility to enter additional text creates a tool for detailed observation of client behavior and transaction development over any period of time.

History queries are available from each concerned object. A dialog box with one row per each history entry is displayed. Entries containing additional text are marked.

System of User Rights

The following overview is meant to briefly describe the key terms of the VVS user rights system.

Each VVS user logging in to the system identifies him/herself by entering the user ID and correct password.

Each user also exists as a person in Persons Management. Each user entry belong to an organization unit such as a department, work group, project team, etc.

The organization unit membership determines which contracts or benefit claims can be processed by each particular user.

A user rights profile is assigned to each VVS user. This profile specifies the operations the user is allowed to carry out.

Organization Unit

Policies belonging to an organization unit are only accessible to the unit itself and to its superior unit.

Group Rights Profile

Functions that are subject to an authorization check include among others all application programs (Icons), menu commands, documents, processing functionality, etc.

Print Outputs

Many VVS dialogs are offering a supplementary feature – the creation of a template.

For example in the payments blockage dialog box, it is possible to set up a template for the blocking note to the active payments blockage.
