How Does Rating Integration Work?
Any vendor offering integration through standard .AL3 files work similarly. For non-standard .AL3 partners, the rating integration process is outlined on their individual pages.
Exporting From Newton
The specific rating bridge must be configured first. Select the desired vendor from the chart above for specific instructions. Once the desired bridge is configured, follow the steps below.
- Load a Client on a client tab.
- Select the Download tab.
- Left-Click the (+) band to expand the desired policy number.
- Right-Click on the bottom or most-recent downloaded transaction and select the configured Upload to ... option.
Importing Into Newton
Any incoming file is processed through the standard download management system. The files should be placed in the same \Empire\Download\ folder used for daily downloads.
If the rating vendor supports launching an external program automatically, an optional program is available that will move the files to the correct download destination automatically.
The program will be located at \Empire\Programs\QueueDL.exe. To use QueueDL.exe, pass the file name to the executable.
For example, from the command line: S:\empire\programs\QueueDL.exe C:\filelocation\somefile.al3
It will briefly show this window, then vanish in a few seconds; it requires no user interaction.
The files can now be imported through the normal daily download process.
