US property underwriter ICAT has deployed OneShield Dragon as its policy management solution from OneShield, which the company claims to accelerate its ability to expand in the property underwriting market.

ICAT has installed the solution to bring process efficiencies, increasing productivity while providing superior service to producers, the firm added.

The administration platform is equipped with Dragon’s workflow engine, which enables ICAT’s underwriters to access an online, integrated underwriter workbench which will streamline and automate workflow to reduce processing costs and allow ICAT to deliver faster turn-around time to producers.

ICAT CIO Mike Ferber said, "OneShield truly understands our unique business needs. With the flexibility that Dragon provides, we have the capability to migrate our products to a single platform which will simplify our technology landscape, improve our operating efficiency and allow us to focus on better service to our producers and clients."

Additional, the policy administration offers automated current internal processes such as risk clearance, triage, risk-sharing assignments, underwriting, rating and quoting; and treamlines customer, partner and producer management, claims ICAT.

ICAT Managers, the principal underwriting subsidiary of Paraline Holdings, offers its services to commercial properties located in catastrophe-exposed regions of the US.
