Instec, a provider of rating and policy administration software for the commercial property and casualty insurance industry, has launched the new release of its policy administration software quicksolver 3.

Instec said quicksolver solution uses Rich Internet Application (RIA) technology to deliver all the benefits of a web-based system, without the constraints of operating within a browser.

Additional features of new quicksolver 3 include: account-centric workflows and ‘capture once’ data entry for account, insured, location, producer and contact information content that spans multiple lines of business; Microsoft ClickOnce self-updating technology automatically keeps quicksolver up-to-date without IT administrator involvement.

The features of the solution also include: user aids such as online HTML help and go-to-error hyperlinks during the rating cycle that allow for real-time corrections by the user; background rating, forms assembly and printing increase user productivity; traditional web-apps adhere to a page-by-page model; conversely, only the parts of a quicksolver screen that have changed are updated which means fewer full-screen refreshes, fewer trips to the server, and fewer chances for error.
