Adriatic Insurance Company has rolled into production with Maple Technologies’ Aspire Information System, which will handle a variety of functions for the US insurer, including electronic application processing, underwriting validation, policy issuance, and claims administration.
Adriatic is a surplus lines insurance carrier that principally underwrites commercial physical damage and motor tuck cargo insurance. The company operates in all 50 US states.
Maple’s Aspire, meanwhile, is a web-based real-time information system that will fully automate Adriatic’s business process through an ASP hosted e-commerce platform. The deal with Adriatic will involve a nationwide rollout of the technology.
We are very pleased to have completed our transition to an ASP information system platform, said Joseph Taylor, Adriatic’s president. It became very evident to us after Hurricane Katrina rendered our operations center in Metairie, Louisiana inoperable, that Aspire is the exact type of technology solution for our company. Aspire offers us complete portability, and safeguards us against business continuity issues.
