SEATTLE, July 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Milliman, Inc., a premier global consulting and actuarial firm, announced today that it has released version 2020b of its Arius® solutions, a family of state-of-the-art reserve analysis systems for property and casualty insurers. This update provides significant enhancements to the systems' analytical capabilities, together with key additions to the reporting and data management tools.
This release adds new generalized linear modeling (GLM) capabilities to help actuaries better model and understand their claim costs. GLM tools can be especially valuable when analyzing periods of inflationary pressure on the claims process or significant changes in claims handling within a company or throughout the industry.
In addition, the new release of Arius Enterprise® – Milliman's reserving solution designed specifically for larger insurers and self-insureds – helps actuaries analyze results at one level of detail and then report on them at different levels. The system's new allocation tools more reliably and efficiently perform the summary and reporting work that is typically accomplished using riskier spreadsheets.
Ken Scalf, reserving products manager at Milliman, noted, "Our Arius solutions are specifically designed to help our clients better understand and account for the complexities in their business. This release provides a number of new tools to help actuaries with sophisticated calculations, as well as data and report management, so they can focus on the areas where their substantial expertise can provide the most value to their organization."
