- Allow for ad hoc analyzes and standardized refunds
- Simulate the impact of a change in gaming ranges or distribution channels.
- Permanent audit trail on the restatements produced by the tool
– High legibility of rules and cost drivers
– Traceability of the information produced
- Simulation capabilities
– Variability of the allocation of cost drivers
– A perspective on various simulations
- Securing the cost-effectiveness analysis
– Automation of the repository and database update
