Since January 1, 2013, Vertafore completed over 100 million real-time transactions, and today stores over one billion documents in its data center.
This year, Best in Biz awards received more than 550 award nominations from public and private companies of all sizes, from virtually every major industry and region in the U.S. and Canada. Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2014 were judged based on scoring from an independent panel of 53 judges from highly recognized newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, radio outlets, and analyst firms. Vertafore was selected by Best in Biz for their comprehensive portfolio of technologies that enhance productivity, lower costs, and help agencies and carriers grow their businesses in an industry that represents 2.3 million U.S. employees and is valued at over $1.1 trillion in annual revenue – seven percent of the total U.S. GDP.
