Company selected open source web content integration software to power all external knowledge sharing solutions

Centric, a management and technology consulting company, has completed the new web portal for Motorists Insurance Group. Jahia, the open source web content integration software, has been chosen to power all external knowledge sharing solutions of the insurer.

The Motorists Insurance Group engaged Centric to manage and execute the multi-phased project to enhance their web presence. Working with the Motorists Insurance Group team, Centric redesigned six public-facing web domains and five company internal domains, and moved them onto Jahia. The project scope included building an agency dashboard that included several portlets that allowed agents to access policy and quote data across life, auto, home and commercial business.

John Kessler, VP of IT, The Motorists Insurance Group, said: Thanks to Jahia, our information and knowledge sharing process is permanently up to date, and is being performed without the need for IT. Thousands of agents and insured members are using our IT solution based on Jahia’s Enterprise Edition and thus benefiting from all these functionalities.
