Texas-based Argo Group US has selected Instec’s rating and policy administration software, quicksolver.

Earlier in 2009, Argo Group’s Argo Select business unit selected Instec’s quicksolver software for all its major standard commercial lines of business that require bureau content, as part of an enterprise initiative to consolidate multiple legacy systems.

Instec said in less than a year, production has been completed for the Businessowners, Commercial Package Policy (property, general liability, inland marine, and crime), commercial automobile, and workers compensation product lines in all 50 US states.

Additionally, Argo has expanded its use of quicksolver into the newly formed Alteris organization for Workers Compensation and Commercial Auto product lines.

Argo Group vice president and CIO for Commercial Specialty Richard Jolly said, Argo Select business unit needed the ability to quickly roll out new products and make changes to existing products with minimal reliance on a vendor. Quicksolver has played a key role in moving Argo Select in that direction.
