RTLabs to make more data available to Russian Union of Motor Insurers via SMEV

30 November

Issuing and renewing Third Party Liability insurance policies is now getting easier

Rostelecom’s subsidiary RTLabs has won the contest held by the Russian Auto Insurers Union (RSA) to select a software developer to establish data exchange between insurance companies and government agencies via the System for Inter-Agency Electronic Exchange (SMEV).
Access to document details of policy holders and their motor cars through SMEV will help streamline the process of issuing Third Party Liability (OSAGO) insurance policies, making it publicly available and minimizing the risk of counterfeiting at the time of policy issuance.
As part of this project, RTLabs will develop Information Exchange, a subsystem of Computer-Aided System OSAGO, to ensure that insurers can access information on motor vehicles and their owners at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Federal Tax Service, the Ministry of Defence, the Federal Customs Service and joint stock company E-Passport. The solution will be powered by Rostelecom’s National Cloud Platform.
RSA will be consolidating requests from insurance companies and transmitting them to SMEV2 and SMEV3 to retrieve the information they need. The key link in this data exchange process will be the Integrated Access Platform developed by RTLabs to establish an exchange between commercial entities and E-Government infrastructure. RTLabs will also be providing 24/7 technical support for the Subsystem over a year from the launch of the solution.
‘With this solution in place, insurance companies will no longer need to scan policy holders’ documents or motor vehicle documents. They will only have to request minimum information to issue an OSAGO policy,’ said RSA President Igor Yurgens.
SMEV is part of the E-Government federal infrastructure, developed by Rostelecom as the sole contractor. SMEV is already used by credit organizations, non-governmental pension funds, multifunction centres, credit bureaus and state corporations Rosatom and Roscosmos. To mobile operators SMEV connection will become available from 1 June 2018.
‘Impressive expertise and unique competences accumulated over eight years of work in operating and developing the E-Government infrastructure will help us develop a software solution that meets requirements of RSA members for sustainable communication with executive authorities. Data exchange with government agencies will bring the insurance market to a new level, raising the efficiency of insurers’ business processes and streamlining bureaucratic procedures. For us this project is an important stage in developing a balanced model for the community and business to interact with the state,’ said Mikhail Bondarenko, General Director of RTLabs.
