A quotation is a risk record by another name but with certain differences.
Setting up a Quotation
To create a quotation use the QUOTE program followed by create new quotation or use the QUOTENEW program. The next available quotation number is assigned to the new quotation. The quotation details are completed, including each section, in the same way as a risk record is completed but with the following differences:
- Although the quotation number must have a year assigned, the year has no structural significance. The quotation number alone uniquely defines the quotation record. The year may be changed the quotation is converted to a policy (using the QUOTEPOL program). Quotations can not be renewed.
- The division may be left blank
- The line slip and its year, and the binder number and year are left blank
- The cl/ins/reins code must be completed. This field is the (re)insured.
QUOTENEW: This program can be used to invoke the SLIP, QUOTED/QUOTER, PROFSCHED and QUOTEPOL programs only. Risk details can be configured for a quotation in exactly the same way as for a risk record.
A quotation can be modified at any time because transactions can never be processed against a quotation.
SLIP: This will accept either a quotation number or a policy number and date. A quotation cannot be created from within the SLIP program – this functionality is in the QUOTENEW program. Multiple slip versions can be produces for a quotation - however, a risk can only have one slip version.
QUOTEPOL: This program converts a quotation to a policy. A chosen slip version is copied over to the new policy number and assigned slip version 1.
Additional fields for the period, lineslip, binder, and division must be completed. All records for risk_details, risk_notes and any pro forma market are copied over to the new policy number.
