Co-operative Insurance Selects Cloud-Based SurePower Innovation® Modern Enterprise Suite

San Jose, CA - May 5, 2015 - ISCS is pleased to announce that Co-operative Insurance Companies (Co-operative Insurance or Co-operative), a Middlebury, Vermont-based insurance company, recently selected ISCS's cloud-based modern enterprise suite, SurePower Innovation®, as the foundation of a legacy core administration and automation project. The suite will be delivered as a complete, managed SaaS solution via ISCS's SurePackageTM deployment option.

Co-operative Insurance, a 100-year-old property and casualty (P&C) insurance company, worked with Strategy Meets Action (SMA) on an exhaustive vendor and system selection process, which examined everything from the time and resources needed for a core replacement and available hosting services to the day-to-day reliability and responsiveness of available vendors. At the end of the process, ISCS met all the requirements and criteria, and presented a good cultural fit for Co-operative. Going forward, ISCS and SurePower Innovation will help Co-operative modernize outdated, existing systems and automate manual processes for efficiency.

"One of the key draws for us was ISCS's implementation track record and strategy which allows us to focus more on running our business and providing service to our customers," said Eric Rhoades, SVP IT for Co-operative. "At the end of the day, we picked a vendor that not only met our business requirements for the system, but had an impressive ecosystem built with many integration points with multiple vendors to run our business."   

ISCS's SurePower Innovation will provide a flexible platform from which Co-operative will be able to grow, enhancing the company's policy, billing and claims administration, as well as providing a firm foundation for expanded commercial lines, personal lines and farm lines. Implemented for Co-operative as a complete managed SaaS solution, SurePower Innovation enables Co-operative to enhance compliance capabilities, scalability, disaster recovery and business continuity.

"Co-operative had a clear vision of what they wanted and where they wanted to go," said Andy Scurto, president of ISCS. "We have the technology, the industry knowledge and service standards to make their vision a reality, and are very pleased the Co-operative team has chosen ISCS and SurePower Innovation."
