Unirisx Enhances SaaS Policy Administration Platform with Integration of ISO Rating Service

RADNOR, Pa., and JERSEY CITY, N.J., November 16, 2009 — Unirisx Ltd., the leading global software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of insurance and healthcare services, today announced the integration of ISO Rating Service® into the Unirisx platform through an agreement with ISO.

Under the terms of the agreement, Unirisx becomes the first SaaS provider to fully integrate and offer ISO Rating Service, the industry-leading automated insurer rate-management system. Unirisx clients will benefit from significant efficiencies through full and direct electronic delivery of the service, avoiding potential delays and errors using alternate solutions. Unirisx also becomes a member of ISO’s Preferred Partner program, which certifies full integration and the ability to offer the service to Unirisx clients.

“The direct availability of ISO Rating Service through Unirisx’s web-based policy-administration platform further enhances a client’s ability to make faster policy-development, underwriting and pricing decisions,” said David Hollander, Unirisx CEO. “This agreement makes Unirisx even more attractive to North American insurers seeking real-time access to policy processing and management through Unirisx.”

Kevin Thompson, senior vice president at ISO, said the company was pleased with the speed and ease of access to the rating service through Unirisx’s integration. “We’re confident that Unirisx users will find easy access to the ISO Rating Service information and tools they need to make informed premium and risk decisions,” he said. “Making ISO Rating Service automatically accessible through premiere platforms such as Unirisx is a real benefit.”
