Addison, TX (PRWEB) March 10, 2008
Skywire Software, a leading global provider of software and services for the insurance industry, today announced Montpelier US Insurance Company (MUSIC) has chosen Skywire Software’s iPPS as its policy production system. iPPS will give MUSIC’s general agents (GAs) the ability to produce policies from virtually anywhere, while reducing the risk of non-compliance.
iPPS from Skywire Software is a Web-based policy production suite that enables efficient and economical policy issuance from anywhere with an Internet connection. The software simplifies the production of policies requiring many custom, user-defined transactions, such as those common among excess & surplus (E&S) lines. By using Skywire Software’ iPPS, companies can cut policy issuance time by up to 70 percent and costs by up to 69 percent, all while handling more volume with existing staff.
The Web-based interface of iPPS ensures that agents always have access to the latest company forms library without the need to download and install software updates.
“We provide our general agents with a library of policy forms, and Skywire Software is their platform of choice,” said Patrick Porter, vice president and controller at MUSIC. “The use of a Web-based policy production system is a competitive differentiator for us. Often a GA can be producing policies that are out of date because they haven’t yet downloaded and updated their forms library. With iPPS, the updates are automatic, thus reducing exposure for the agents. This will solidify MUSIC’s position as a carrier of choice among GAs.”
“iPPS empowers GAs to issue policies, endorsements and renewals in minutes, providing better service to their customers,” said Bob Steinke, vice president of product development, Skywire Software. “Carriers who offer iPPS to their GAs gain greater reach and lower maintenance costs. They also receive policies immediately over the Web, reducing cycle times.”
With hundreds of sites installed, Skywire Sofware’s policy production software is the industry leader with one of the largest customer bases of all policy production systems. According to a recent NAPSLO survey, 67 percent of its general agent members and 62 percent of broker members use Skywire Software to issue policies. In the E&S lines market, Skywire Software is the industry standard.
