Pearl River, N.Y., September 22, 2014 – U.S. RE has announced that it has licensed the CATEX Pivot Point Transaction System to be implemented within its US reinsurance brokerage operations. U.S. RE’s analytics and its related resources have been cited in several quarters as among the leading resources and client service suites in the reinsurance business.
The Pivot Point Reinsurance Transaction System, used by a select number of leading reinsurance brokers, is a web-based transaction system encompassing placement, contract negotiation, binding, billing, accounting, claims, MI and the Data Vera conversion and analytics application. Premiums, endorsements, claims and reinstatements can be netted in a single transaction to allow for quick premium and claims payments on the SaaS system. CATEX was again named Best Technology Provider by Intelligent Insurer magazine on September 14th at the annual reinsurance Rendezvous in Monte Carlo. CATEX earned the same designation in 2013. U.S. RE and CATEX expect full system deployment by the end of October.
Marc Piccione, U.S. RE S.V.P, said, “We have always put top priority on providing clients with the best analytics and service capabilities available, and our partnering with CATEX is a perfect fit with that mindset. Our clients will enjoy an even higher level of efficient transaction processing and immediate access to important client data on a 24/7 basis. U.S. RE’s commitment to state of the art technology continues to expand with our acquisitions and new markets here and abroad.”
Frank Fortunato, CATEX CEO, said, “We look forward to working with the U.S. RE team, many of whom we have known for 20 years. We are in the process of beginning training and implementation in the U.S. and are being introduced to their overseas partners.”
The Pivot Point platform currently supports client operations in 20 countries; processes premium volumes of more than USD $4.5 billion annually; settles transactions in 75 currencies; and distributes invoices in 6 languages. The CATEX Data Vera product, used on CATEX systems, greatly improves the accuracy and speed of risk information uploads and provides real-time analytics and reporting production.
