NCJUA and NCIUA Select ISCS’s SurePower Innovation

San Jose, CA - June 8, 2015 - ISCS is pleased to announce the North Carolina Fair Plan, also known as the North Carolina Joint Underwriting Association (NCJUA) and the Coastal Property Insurance Pool also known as the North Carolina Insurance Underwriting Association (NCIUA), have selected SurePower Innovation® to modernize outdated processes and IT infrastructure that make daily business operations, as well as disaster recovery and business continuity planning, cumbersome and complex.

NCJUA and NCIUA (known jointly as the Associations) worked with Eastern Shore Consulting to complete a thorough selection process which carefully reviewed the features and functionality of ISCS's SurePower Innovation, a modern enterprise suite, using scripted and non-scripted demonstrations and customer site visits. The Associations provide property insurance coverages, as well as claims handling and underwriting services for policyholders in North Carolina.

"Our users rated the features and functionality as exceptional and appreciated the in depth understanding of insurance and insurance company operations by the ISCS staff," said Gina Schwitzgebel, CPCU, CIC, CRM, ARM, AIC, AMIM, general manager for the Associations. "Having the ability to provide outstanding claims service to the citizens of North Carolina during a catastrophic event is our primary focus. ISCS provides a web-based, SaaS solution, which has the ability to scale during a large claims event with real-time replication to three disaster recovery sites."

During the implementation, ISCS will work with internal experts from the Associations to design workflows that will specifically and significantly reduce operational friction and improve efficiency. SurePower Innovation is a highly configurable, cloud-based modern enterprise suite with a strong set of mobile capabilities and scalability options, which deliver accessibility and ease of use unequaled in the industry.

"ISCS invited our management to participate in their customer conferences and user groups and arranged for our team to visit several customers who had just finished installation of SurePower Innovation," said Schwitzgebel. "After talking with numerous ISCS customers, our management team was very impressed with ISCS's ability to complete complex installations within time, scope and cost; to improve the efficiency of their customers; and to exceed their customer's service expectations."

"The Associations knew the features and functionality that were needed in a new core administration suite, and were looking for a smooth implementation, guaranteed uptime, data redundancy and disaster recovery capabilities," said Andy Scurto, president of ISCS. "We'll meet these needs by delivering SurePower Innovation as a complete managed SaaS solution via our SurePackage deployment option. We are so pleased to have the Associations come on board as part of the SurePower User Group (SPUG) family."
