Atain Insurance Companies (Atain) has selected Oceanwide’s Bridge Insurance Software Suite and Insurity’s Claims Decisions to support its commercial package, commercial property, and commercial general liability lines of business.

Atain will be using Bridge’s portal, policy administration, rating, billing, document generation, and reporting modules.

Atain conducted an extensive search to replace a legacy system that was not meeting its functionality or technology needs. Oceanwide delivered a proof of concept that provided Atain with a vision of its future system.

A key consideration for Atain was that Bridge could be used for carriers, MGAs and brokers – creating the possibility that they could leverage Bridge to address multiple functions across the enterprise.

H.W. Kaufman Financial Group information technology vice president and managing director Michael Paulin said: “We were impressed with the Oceanwide team and the Bridge and Claims Decisions solutions.

“As a part of H.W. Kaufman Financial Group, it was important that we selected a system that not only met Atain’s requirements but was also flexible and could be configured to improve the user experience across the many companies within our group.”

Oceanwide CEO Mitchell Wasserman said: “We are proud to be working with such a respected insurer and support their continued growth.

“We look forward to a long relationship with Atain.”

Atain Insurance Companies president Wayne A. Bates said: “Atain is excited about partnering with one of the leading IT companies in the insurance space.

“This investment is a key part of our strategy to continually improve the experience and efficiencies for our broker and agent partners.”

Oceanwide’s Bridge Insurance Software Suite is specifically designed to streamline processing for property and casualty (P&C) insurers, brokers, and MGAs.

Bridge features Smart Configuration (no programming or scripting) to provide a system that is configurable by business users. Bridge enables a high degree of self-sufficiency, and can handle multi-lingual and multi-currency transactions.
