By making integration easier, ACS adds value to insurers by helping them manage their rating functions more efficiently and obtain underwriting reports," said Sean Quillivan, iiX general manager.

'Integrated underwriting reports from iiX, combined with underwriting edits in ACS2000, provide agents with the tools necessary for accurate point-of-sale quoting.
