We use to develop spreadsheets as internal tools to verify premium calculations from the field. We then expanded the use of such spreadsheets for a select group of clients who also wanted it for internal use. After a while, the word spread that we had such a tool, and then everybody wanted it for production use. Prior to the adoption of the Pagos platform, we would have to send updated versions of the spreadsheets to all of our clients, every time we needed to make a change. It became very cumbersome, and we had no control over which version people were using. The Pagos tool removes all of that headache, and now we have full control over the users, the version they are using, and we can implement new versions without them even knowing. It’s a superb tool.
