Your models can’t be considered “models” unless you have strict model control and validation procedures.  ARC is here to help and our experts with years of Prophet and general modeling experience, can help identify potential pitfalls that may cause challenges with future development.

Model Compression

Are you spending too much time running your models rather than analyzing your models?

 

Why not reduce your hardware footprint, achieve faster runtimes and lower memory requirements, while maintaining the accuracy you desire?  What you need is ARC’s Accutility software package which reduces the size of your models using cluster modeling techniques while retaining a high degree of accuracy.  For additional information see Accutility.

ARC can help you automate the entire end-to-end process from admin system to ledger.  Our Prophet experts are available to assist you in reviewing your current processes and provide recommendations to improve your processes on the front and back end of your models. This will minimize or eliminate the need for individual involvement in the construction of data and assumptions for your projection needs and allow your actuarial staff to focus on providing valuable management decision making analytics.

Reporting

ARC can help you make the most out of your projection results.  From model design to data analysis, we can help you extract the data you desire, efficiently manage that data and produce the various reports, analytics and management summaries to assist you in your projection requirements.
