Southern Pioneer Implements ISCS's SurePower Innovation Policy Administration Suite
San Jose, CA and Jonesboro, AR - June 1, 2010 - ISCS is pleased to announce Southern Pioneer
Property & Casualty Insurance Company (Southern Pioneer) has
implemented SurePower Innovation® Policy Administration
Suite to handle processing of the company's homeowners', dwelling
fire, vacant dwelling fire, garage liability, commercial
property and liquor liability lines of business.
One of the main goals of Southern Pioneer, a specialty
property/casualty insurance carrier based in Jonesboro, Arkansas, was to
improve the company's business processes through the best practices and
workflow inherent to ISCS' SurePower Innovation. Southern Pioneer selected
SurePower Innovation in part to modernize the company's existing policy
administration system, as well as to provide easy cross-company reporting, and
enforcement of consistent company requirements- across all lines and products.
"SurePower Innovation allows us to provide our
agents with additional tools and support to serve our policyholders," said
Brian Hyneman, secretary/treasurer for Southern Pioneer. "It will also help us
become more efficient in our operations."
The implementation of SurePower Innovation at
Southern Pioneer has automated most of the company's critical business
processes, including underwriting, policy and claims management, reinsurance,
and billing. ISCS utilized agile
development methods, including defined sprints and comprehensive acceptance
testing, during the Southern Pioneer implementation to maintain project scope
and quality of deliverables.
"We are very pleased that Southern Pioneer chose
ISCS and SurePower Innovation to modernize their policy processes," said Andy
Scurto, ISCS president and CTO. "We look forward to continuing and expanding
upon the relationship between the two companies well into the future."
P&C carriers and MGAs rely on the modular, Web
and SOA-based SurePower Innovation Policy Administration Suite to perform critical business processes for commercial, personal and
specialty lines of business. These include automated
underwriting, policy and claims management, integrated
reinsurance, integrated billing and much more. The system
provides integrated document management, a rules-based data warehouse, and
document imaging client tool for bulk indexing and LDAP-standards security.
With modern highly scalable, extensible, and configurable technology, SurePower
Innovation enables insurers of all sizes to meet today's market requirement for
business agility. SurePower Innovation Policy Administration Suite is a
company-wide, strategic choice for carriers to both retain customers and
increase their book of business. For more information contact Phil
