Test Results: 44% Response Time Improvement Over Previous On-Premise Environment
Hartford, CT – January 15, 2020 — Insurity, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based solutions and data analytics for the world’s largest insurers, brokers, and MGAs, today announced that its cloud performance test results with Nationwide, a Fortune 100 company and one of the largest and strongest diversified insurance and financial services organizations in the United States, have shown performance improvements as high as 44% over its previous on-premise environment. Testing was applied to Insurity’s Policy Decisions solution, which has been used by Nationwide on-premises for over 20 years, and was just recently migrated to Insurity’s cloud-based platform.
“As one of the world’s largest insurance companies, we handle and process tremendous amounts of important policyholder information every day,” said Mike Nance, director of IT applications at Nationwide E&S. “We were extremely pleased with the results of Insurity’s performance testing, which will translate to both internal efficiency improvements, as well as quicker and more efficient experiences for our agency partners and policyholders.”
Leveraging Insurity’s industry-leading cloud platform, Nationwide saw major speed advantages in core functions within its policy administration system, which handles over $800 million in direct written premium (DWP). Transaction types tested, and their respective performance improvements, include writing new business (44% improvement), endorsements (31% improvement), reinstatements (35% improvement), and cancellations (43% improvement). All testing was performed under peak hour conditions.
“We’ve been a proud partner of Nationwide for over 20 years, providing them with the latest technology solutions to manage their policies across many different lines of business including general liability, auto, workers’ compensation, umbrella, and inland marine,” said Michele Shepard, chief revenue officer at Insurity. “Nationwide joins over 200-plus clients that have already migrated to our cloud-based offering, taking advantage of our leading cloud and data security expertise and experiencing first-hand the types of performance increases that Insurity’s cloud platform is able to deliver.”
Insurity’s Policy Decisions solution is built for high-volume and package policy processing, supports over 20 commercial, bureau-based lines of business, and leverages the largest API ecosystem for connecting third-party data and services in the industry. By moving their policy administration system to the cloud, Nationwide has gained a more agile, flexible environment that more efficiently captures and processes data, and cost-effectively scales based on changing workload requirements.
