URS addresses P&C carriers' needs for ceded and assumed reinsurance administration

OAKLAND, Calif., June 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Universal Reinsurance System (URS®) v 7.1 from StoneRiver, Inc. facilitates user interaction with a newly designed launch page optimized for clean, efficient navigation. The P&C reinsurance solution automates ceded and assumed reinsurance business, including reinsurance underwriting, claims processing, and accounting. URS is in production at dozens of insurance carriers across the country.


URS v7.1 also adds support for a Microsoft SQL Server relational database to the existing support for IBM DB2 and UDB. With the fresh launch page, carriers experience:

  • Streamlined navigation
  • Reduced training time for first-time users, and
  • A clear snapshot of workload for both the individual user and the company

"There is increasing interest among primary insurers in reinsurance solutions that provide recordkeeping and execution capabilities to make reinsurance programs provide the value they were designed to do," said Donald Light, Senior Analyst of Celent, an international strategy consultancy. "URS provides the comprehensive administrative functionality that spreadsheets cannot address."

"The new launch page will be popular with system users, and the additional database flexibility means carriers using SQL Server can take advantage of this powerful system," said Sue Peirce, AVP of Reinsurance Operations at StoneRiver, Inc. "Spreadsheets have helped carriers with reinsurance for years, but spreadsheets alone cannot ensure regulatory compliance or prevent overlooked recoverables to the degree that URS's complete automation of reinsurance administration can."
