Overland Solutions teamed with Adobe Systems and Avoka Technologies to take on a comprehensive overhaul of OSI’s systems and processes to create a state-of-the-art field representative inventory management and smart forms system, named OSITrac® ASPEN.
“We undertook the ASPEN project to improve the productivity of our field representatives, to standardize and structure the data we are collecting and to more quickly respond to our customers’ requests for custom reports and data feeds,” said Craig Locante, President of Overland Solutions’ Survey Division.
“In addition to enhancing the quality and time service of our traditional products, ASPEN also significantly advances our data solutions capabilities,” Locante said. “This international award from Adobe is a great compliment, and is evidence that the project team has succeeded on all fronts.”

Lastly, this mobile application supports the broadest possible range of computing platforms, including the transition to low cost tablet devices in the future.

OVERLAND SOLUTIONS, INC. ANNOUNCES NEW ONLINE PREMIUM AUDIT SOLUTION
AuditStream™ Web 2.0
Portal Reduces Insurer Risk and Costs By Boosting Completion Rates and Data Accuracy
OVERLAND PARK, KS – Overland Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of insurance services and solutions, today announced the availability of AuditStream, a secure online premium audit solution for commercial-lines carriers. AuditStream is the first industry solution that addresses the inefficiencies and costs associated with voluntary premium audits and related work flow processes. An intuitive Web 2.0 portal, with more than a dozen industry tracks, the carrier-branded portal manages service selection, increases overall completion ratios and gives policyholders a convenient medium for accurate data submission.
AuditStream, developed by Overland Solutions, Inc., is a secure workflow-based Web portal designed to manage voluntary premium audits for commercial-lines carriers. AuditStream provides the ideal selection process for smaller Workers’ Compensation and General Liability policies, at the most affordable cost, for a completed premium audit. The patent-pending portal was created in partnership with behavioral psychologists to provide a compelling user experience. Users enter required information into a secure Web site featuring intuitive questions that help guide them through the process. AuditStream applies configurable rules and best-practice processes to increase completion rates and trigger additional data requests or phone audits if needed. Each report is reviewed by an OSI premium audit professional for quality assurance or escalation. The result is a completed premium audit that can be immediately processed and billed by the carrier, reducing the need for any follow-up with the policyholder. Completed AuditStream reports are delivered via system-to-system (S2S), Web or email transfer.
“We believe AuditStream is the first solution to address the inefficiencies and costs associated with the process of conducting voluntary premium audits. The portal provides a dynamic, user-friendly automated platform that ensures better quality data, boosts response rates and brings greater value to the market,” commented Jeffery L. Haniewich, CEO, Overland Solutions, Inc. “Much like the due diligence we conducted in designing the AuditStream interface and intuitive workflow, we also ensured the portal was field-tested and as turn-key as possible. Several leading commercial-lines carriers have been using AuditStream for their smaller premium policies and noted increased completion rates and more comprehensive data.”
ROI and Availability -- The portal delivers 30% greater completion rates – and at a lower cost – than other mediums, by enabling policyholders to enter required data using a password-protected site at their convenience within a specified timeframe, and with online help and tips. Extensive interviews with P&C insurance carriers revealed that the typical response rate for voluntary premium audits completed manually is 50%. AuditStream pilot customers reported higher completion rates of up to 86%.
The Overland Solutions AuditStream Web 2.0 premium audit portal is available today, enabling commercial-lines carriers to quickly realize ROI by cutting costs and time spent and increasing data completion and accuracy for better underwriting and reduced risk. AuditStream offers one general and more than a dozen best-practice industry tracks, advanced workflow and configurable rules. Carrier-branded portals are typically delivered in one week. Pricing is based upon volume and escalation parameters.
