“Their in-depth industry knowledge enabled them [TIW] to spot issues with the BMS, that most would have missed.”

The Problem

Commercial motor insurer Tradex wanted support with ensuring the modification and implementation of a third-party bordereaux management system (BMS), which was originally designed for the Lloyd’s market, met their own needs.

The Solution

TIW undertook User Acceptance Testing for the modifications made to software provider Vipr’s Intrali BMS in order to not only ensure the bespoke changes to the system were fully functioning but that the back-end reporting was fit for purpose.

TIW worked closely with both Tradex and Vipr to deliver this project following an initial meeting with the two parties. TIW reviewed the business and technical specifications and broke down the test scripts into several key sections including Configuration, Field Validations, Power BI, Coinsurance, Post-go live smoke testing and executed test scripts.

Through this process TIW identified 94 issues and worked closely with Vipr to ensure they were fixed. These included several bugs that needed to be overcome, the identification of several specification changes that had been overlooked in the build and agile development to deliver on the bespoke coinsurance element.

The Outcome

Tradex Insurance was able to go live and be fully confident that its modified version of the Vipr BMS, including the addition of a bespoke reporting element, was fit for purpose. The whole project, from start to finish, was completed in six months with no disruption to business.
