Overview: This document is intended to gather information from prospective clients in order to enable StatPro to substantiate an effort estimate for the implementation of Raison SPS. All answers and opinions will be kept strictly confidential and for use only by StatPro. Please enter both your name and the name of your company in the 'Name' space below.


  1. Environment Setup StatPro charges a one time fee to cover the costs and efforts to set up the computing environment, database and telecommunications for the client. This effort is based on the modules, number of users and user IDs that a client requires. With this information in hand we will be in a stronger position to provide you with an cost/effort estimate for the one time environment setup. This estimate is also dependent on whether the implementation is completed on a license or ASP basis. Please specify:

    License - Client owns term license to software and hosts hardware and software on client site.
    Application Service Provision (ASP) - StatPro hosts all hardware and software, client connects to StatPro to run the software.

  1. Environmental Requirements Please note any specific environmental requirements that your organization has. (i.e. Specific type of database, specific communications protocols, security requirements, etc)

Factors that will impact the scope, timeline and effort include but are not limited to: •Whether a historical data conversion is required and if so, the amount of history •Quality of data provided for conversion and file layouts •Raison SPS modules included (covered above) •Extent of any customization required Type of Conversion required (select ONE):

    As at Conversion – Convert portfolio / security positions as of a specific date. (If you select this response, please skip to question #11)

  1. Conversion File Layouts Depending on the number of portfolio/security positions and volume of transactions to be converted, either manual or electronic conversions are available. Typically, if there are less than 200 portfolio/security positions and no historical data conversion, a manual conversion is feasible. This is the lowest cost scenario, as clients usually initialize data with assistance from StatPro. For higher volumes, an electronic conversion is required. With an electronic conversion, there are numerous options for which file layouts to use. StatPro typically provides standard file layouts and asks that clients populate data in these standard layouts. (The format can be Excel, CSV, etc). Alternately, StatPro can take any form of source data and ‘map’ the data to Raison SPS data values on behalf of the client. This is called a custom data conversion. Based on these descriptions, please specify ONE of the following:

    Manual conversion
    Electronic conversion – use StatPro standard file layouts
    Electronic conversion – client specified file layouts (custom conversion)
    Unknown, requires further discussion

  1. Reporting Specify the types of reports you require. Please provide samples via email to your StatPro Sales Representative, if available.

  1. Customization There are two possible areas of customization - programming and reporting. In both areas, our approach is to determine exactly what is required and then provide a fixed fee quotation for the effort to deliver the customization. Are there any areas where you feel customization will be required? Area’s to consider: •Interfaces required to or from other internal or external systems (i.e. Transactions, pricing, security profiles) •Proprietary calculations specific to your products •Customized reporting for clients or management
