BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Members of the Novarica Insurance Technology Research Council, a knowledge-sharing group of hundreds of insurer CIOs, have selected Homesite as one of two winners for Digital initiative, based on a review of case studies published today at https://novarica.com/compendium2017/.
Homesite Insurance launched a sales portal with new policy and billing core systems implemented in the cloud. Completed in a little over a year, the project supports product bundling, delivers up to 40% premium cost savings to customers, and enables expansion for other lines of business.
“Providing customers a seamless experience while utilizing technology was a major motivator,” said Dustin Hubbard, Chief Digital Officer and Vice President at Homesite. “As we continue to grow, we are focused on creating new ways to make our customers’ experience efficient and convenient.”
“Homesite’s initiative was selected by the committee for its effective use of technology and real-world business impact,” said Matthew Josefowicz, President/CEO of Novarica and moderator of the Council.
The case study, along with case studies of seven other winners, and more than 20 additional cases considered for Impact Awards, was published today in Novarica’s 6th Annual Best Practices Case Study Compendium, online at https://novarica.com/compendium2017/. Novarica has published more than 175 case studies through this program since 2012.
