Unico American has selected Wyde, a provider of software and outsourcing solutions for the insurance industry, to deploy a new policy administration system for its subsidiary Crusader Insurance as well as to support other subsidiary operations.

Cary Cheldin, chairman and CEO of Unico, said: “Configuration and implementation work just got started. For the foreseeable future, this fully web-enabled, open-architecture platform should support every dream imaginable, enabling us to meet and exceed the expectations of our agents and our customers while the insurance business and the buying habits of people continue to change.

“Our selection of the Wyde and of their Wynsure product is the result of an exhaustive search which we began two years ago. We believe that the Wynsure product is vastly superior to that offered by most other firms. The new system will replace our legacy system, which will be phased out over several years.”

Unico is an insurance holding company that underwrites property and casualty insurance through its insurance company subsidiary; provides property, casualty and health insurance through its agency subsidiaries; and through its other subsidiaries provides insurance premium financing and membership association services.
