Horizon Casualty Services Selects @Global’s Allegro Business Intelligence Portal

9 July 2008

@Global, a software solution provider to the property and casualty insurance industry, today announced that Horizon Casualty Services (HCS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, has selected @Global’s Allegro Business Intelligence Portal (Allegro BI Portal) software to help it integrate, manage and simplify key database information. The implementation is currently underway and on track for production use in September 2008. Implementation includes the development of key performance indicators (KPIs) specific to HCS.

“We are always looking for innovative technologies and approaches to help us continuously improve our precision in meeting client-based performance metrics. With @Global’s business intelligence tool we found a powerful, yet easy-to-use application that will enable us to tap into our vast database and leverage higher performance,” said Ilene Wachs, president of Horizon Casualty Services. “By putting critical business intelligence information into the hands of our decision makers, we seek to improve the effectiveness of our business processes and deliver increased value to our customers.”

HCS will take advantage of Allegro BI Portal’s capabilities to more effectively track key processes and identify quality exceptions, offering a much more powerful approach to managing business intelligence information. HCS’ current data reporting approach requires an array of ad hoc reports and queries. With the Allegro BI Portal, HCS will have a single and easy-to-use tool to better meet its business intelligence information and operations requirements with complete and up-to-the-minute information. Additional benefits will include automated publishing and distribution of reports, enabling HCS to easily provide access to selected business intelligence information for its clients and vendors.

“We thank HCS for selecting @Global and our Allegro BI Portal. We appreciate their confidence in both our product and our staff,” said Steve Graham, president and CTO, @Global. “Our goal with Allegro BI Portal is to help companies such as HCS achieve innovative business solutions in the area of performance improvement by empowering their staff with complete, current, and relevant information in order to make the most informed and timely business decisions.”

@Global’s Allegro Business Intelligence Portal is a business intelligence tool that offers organizations a virtual window into their insurance operations. Allegro accesses, organizes, and integrates critical information contained in corporate data sources, which are often spread across a variety of systems. Without experiencing the difficulty and expense of integrating diverse systems, Allegro provides organizations with a single point of access to vital business intelligence information at a summary and/or detail level, enabling the users to drill down as needed.
