MakeRate Module

MakeRate is a unique module that allows the creation of customized rating systems for distribution both internally and to other parties needing your rates. For many companies, supplying CD's/diskettes has become the preferred method of receiving or distributing rate agreements.

Our MakeRate program simplifies the process of producing disks that allow each rater to be customized for the ultimate user. Using MakeRate, customized rating systems can be created containing your rates and pricing terms for distribution to specific customers or users.

MakeRate allows carriers to provide individualized systems that contain only the base levels, discounts, terms & conditions, value added services and/or other information applicable for the specific customer.
