@Global Announces General Availability of Allegro Business Intelligence Portal

5 August 2008

@Global, a software solution provider to the property and casualty insurance industry, today announced general availability of its Allegro Business Intelligence Portal (Allegro BI Portal). Allegro BI Portal is a business intelligence suite designed to provide insurance organizations with a virtual window into their business operations. Allegro BI Portal offers business managers timely access to the critical business intelligence information needed to make the most appropriate business decisions.

In today’s competitive insurance environment, many organizations are striving for a more effective means of tracking key processes and identifying quality exceptions. Traditional methods for managing business processes, such as relying on paper reports and spreadsheets, are no longer adequate. These highly manual approaches require significant maintenance and the information is frequently incomplete or dated, offering little value to decision makers.

The browser-based Allegro BI Portal addresses this information challenge by acting as the single point of access to corporate data sources that are often strewn across the enterprise and a variety of systems. Allegro BI Portal accesses, organizes, and assimilates key critical and performance data, presenting the information at a summary or detail level, enabling users to drill down as needed.

Commenting on his organization’s use of Allegro BI Portal, Yul Garces, director of operations with Coventry Workers’ Comp Services, said that he has seen significant productivity and quality improvements. According to Yul, “The BI Portal has given me the ability to take a detailed looked inside my operation, detect bottlenecks and quickly identify opportunities for improvement. I can now make more effective business decisions in less time. Our customers and our bottom line are both benefiting.”

“Our mission at @Global is to develop software which enables insurance organizations to dramatically improve and transform their business processes, and Allegro BI Portal was developed with that goal in mind,” said Steve Graham, president and CTO of @Global. “While the solution has been in production for some time, we are very pleased to announce the general availability of Allegro BI Portal.”

Highlights of Allegro Business Intelligence Portal include:
• Key process indicator (KPI) trending capabilities based on on-line analytical processing (OLAP) technology
• KPI alerts for automatic notification when a KPI is not being met
• Quick and easy export of data ‘views’ to spreadsheet and reporting writing programs, email, or .PDF files

• Available as either an ASP-delivered or client-hosted version
• Easy-to-use, intuitive user interface
