Predictive Analytics

Solartis Explore

Our analytical tool for book of business level ("what if") analysis and processing activities

Policy administration systems are designed to manage policy activity on the individual policy level, not at the book of business level. Insurance Carriers and MGAs have had to resort to manual activities to perform predictive (“what if”) analysis on their books of business, and back-office IT activities to make changes at the book of business level versus the individual policy level.

Solartis Explore solves both these challenges.

Predictive (“what if”) Analysis

Today, many insurance actuaries and business analysts are still using Excel spreadsheets to perform analyses on their insurance products and books of business. They have been waiting years for the right tool.

The Solartis Explore platform is the right tool. Solartis Explore is an analytical tool for modeling and testing future scenarios for targeted insurance business processes such as pricing, demand forecasting, and profitability analyses. Solartis Explore supports a wide variety of analysis use cases, including:

Analyze the impact on in-force accounts due to changes in eligibility rules, rate factors, coverages, and coverage options.

Identify off-balancing factors to minimize the impact of other changes on the book.

Evaluate new opportunities including new products/markets for the existing book.

Estimate the impact of future volatility and variability (randomness) on pricing adequacy (Stochastic Modeling).


After a one-time set up of a Use Case Model, the Customer imports the Source Data files into Solartis Explore, runs the Source data against the Target System, and generates the target reports for visualization and hypothesis analysis.

“Solartis Explore is a critical analysis tool we used to analyze the pricing adequacy and competitiveness of a proposed new rate structure for our program. The granularity of the data Solartis Explore produced highlighted the need to file a new company LCMs. Had the tool not identified this issue, our proposed rate structure would have proved disastrous for our larger accounts and potentially jeopardized the existing book of business. I can say with confidence that the detailed pricing simulation provided by Solartis Explore saved us and our carrier partner not only time and money; but also gave us critically needed certainty in initiating state filings of the new rate plan.”

“Book of Business Level” Changes:

Solartis Explore brings book-of-business level system and transaction changes out from behind the scenes to the business user. Solartis Explore is an easy-to-use tool that allows you to perform any transaction type at the book of business (or segment of the book) level. Here are a few examples used by Solartis customers:

Aggregate Management: Solartis Explore automatically monitors a carrier book’s Total Insurance Value (TIV) to ensure it is within the defined capacity. If thresholds are crossed, Solartis Explore will perform automatic shutdowns or refer geographic regions for manual review. The system will also restart when the TIV is within an acceptable aggregate range.

Cease Bind: Prevents the binding of new business and policy changes in specified regions during turbulent weather or named storm events.

Bulk Policy/Account Migration: Provides the capability to move a book of business (or a segment of the book) to a different carrier or program. It also supports moving the book from one system to another.

After a one-time setup of the Bulk Transaction Change Use Case Model, the customer can manage changes and analytics according to the unique needs of the business. The customer can choose to manually activate the bulk system change or to activate Solartis Explore's monitoring and automation capabilities. Solartis Explore can continuously monitor the policy administration system’s performance and automatically perform the bulk change based on the requirements defined in the Use Case Model.
