The Configuration Tool is a component of the absence management application which allows for application configuration for new client implementations. The end users of the Configuration Tool, primarily the Implementation team, will be able to define client requirements by selecting configuration values from a series of question-and-answer screens for each module.

Description of the project:

The Global Account Management System (GAMS) application is currently a consolidation tool which captures all pertinent client information at the parent and local levels, account brief information including account handling instructions and global program summaries, as well as policy digest summaries for all local placements. The consolidation also assists in the creation of financial and management reports for the benefit of both the client and account manager to make informed business decisions.

All Aon Global Client Network (AGCN) locations and offices handling major multi-national clients enter account data into GAMS, including all Strategic Account Management (SAM) initiative accounts.

GAM was built in Lotus Notes and has been in production for over 15 years. The Lotus Notes architecture has imposed a lot of restrictions to the data flow processes followed in GAMS today. The ‘Next Generation GAMS’ (NGG) project was kicked off to recreate the old application using modern technologies and improved processes, including workflow capabilities, improved reporting and means for monitoring client service performance and compliance. It also intends to bring GAMS at par with other ARS applications in terms of technology and establish communication with them in future phases.
