New on-demand anti-fraud solution for motor insurers goes live on schedule.

July 2004 brought the initial dual-running implementation of the new Motor Insurance Anti-Fraud and Theft Register (MIAFTR2) to a community of 200 Insurers. The transitioning of all Insurers was completed by the end of December 2004 on schedule.

The aim of the MIAFTR2 database is to reduce fraudulent motor insurance claims, which rose by 122%, from just under £3 billion to over £6 billion during a recent two year period. All ABI members have access to cross-reference claims to detect possible instances of fraud. HPI operates the new MIAFTR2 service on behalf of the ABI.


Aggressive deadlines demanded by the ABI required a completely new approach to application development. The service operator - HPI turned to Hyfinity to deliver the new system. MIAFTR2 went live within a record 6 months, reducing planned effort and costs by a third.


Real-time business process automation in Insurance - To meet the challenge, HPI engaged XML, Web Services and SOA specialists Hyfinity to deliver the new system. Using a mixture of Hyfinity's rapid web development tools and expert XML and J2EE skills, Hyfinity delivered the MIAFTR2 application to the tightest of budgets and timescales.

Key Features and Benefits

The following highlights some of the key on-demand functionality now available within the MIAFTR2 system:

  • Register and maintain claims in real-time

  • Search and match for potential fraud during the Quote or New Business processes

  • Track and monitor all claim activities

  • Deliver alert notifications for various critical business events via email or fax as they happen

  • Provide on-demand online reporting and analysis

Delivering Composite Applications The highly flexible architecture enables all core business processes to be accessed through a range of channels, including Self-Service Web Application, Web Services and traditional batch. To meet the tightest of timescales and cost constraints, Hyfinity constructed the solution as a XML-centric Service-Oriented Web Application. This approach meant that the system could be assembled from various services; some specially constructed, some assembled from third party web services, others re-using internal systems services.

Hyfinity's approach harnesses the power of an XML document-centric assembly from design to construction:

  • XML Schemas were used for all Information and Data Models

  • Web Services generated from Schemas

  • Generation of XForms-based Self-Service Web Application
