17 © Xchanging … this is a user template Rollout Approach Brokers divided up into implementation convoys CRMs will offer brokers an implementation slot Aim to have majority of brokers connected by year end LMBC will monitor feedback from the CRMs and assist where required to resolve issues If you are developing DRI then consider using Direct Load in the short term If you are a niche broker make your CRM aware that you require Release 2 and Release 3 functionality to process any volumes

19 © Xchanging … this is a user template Common Issues (1) Training and testing are crucial to a smooth and successful implementation –Common submission problems –Training & testing enhanced with common learning Dont underestimate the cultural change within your organisation –For example broker technicians repeated hitting send on DRI creating multiple packages Remember to try and replicate the current paper process – if it happens on paper then chances are it should continue to happen in an electronic environment – e.g. multilayered risks written on one slip should continue to be sent in as one work package (per paper) The Work Order is key to getting your work processed quickly and correctly –get the 8 fields correct –However we will not reject if they are wrong

20 © Xchanging … this is a user template Common Issues (2) Resolution of queries and rejects require the workpackage to be returned to the control of the broker rather than resolution and amendment of queries via the phone on paper –it will feel like more queries are being raised but this isnt the case, and this process has a more robust audit trail and allows for rejects to be resolved much quicker than on paper via vans Expect the backend output to look different and make sure the technical accounting teams are prepared for a different output from XIS –our implementation testing helps with this
