All the critical financial information such as risk capital allocation by LOB and calendar year, and Tail Value-at-Risk for different time horizons can be computed in a matter of seconds. A company-wide report can be created effortlessly with a single report template.

These are also extended to include an intercept term and a constant accident period trend for each development period.
The resultant benefits
include forecast standard errors (instead of just a point value)
and the ability to test whether the assumptions made by the model
are carried by the data.
