COLUMBIA, S.C., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Dovetail Insurance Corporation, an insurance industry services provider, announced today that they have launched a new workers compensation insurance program for NetComp in only 75 days using the latest advances in technology to make it possible. The program required an internet portal for the agents, a processing system implementation to support policy issuance and maintenance and staffing for the entire back office.  This program was the perfect fit for Dovetail's new Program in a Box(sm) service offering.

NetComp contracted with Dovetail because they saw a niche in the insurance market that they wanted to take advantage of and Dovetail had the insurance knowledge and operational ability to make that happen for them very quickly.

The Program in a Box(sm) toolset, including the Duck Creek Policy Administration™ system, provides a base that offers unsurpassed flexibility and is designed to expedite the implementation process. This foundation incorporates an internet based system that provides a link between the portal and processing system for storing data used in predefined, industry specific workflows and referrals and subsequently creates a data repository for management reporting. Using this approach NetComp was in production and generating premium in just weeks.

John F. Seibert, President and CEO of NetComp, stated, "Dovetail's Program in a Box(sm) services offering is a perfect fit for NetComp. Our goal is to deliver a product to independent agents that is fast and takes the complexity out of the process of underwriting, rating and issuing a policy. Dovetail's solution makes that possible."

Steve Francis, President and CEO of Dovetail Insurance, stated, "Dovetail is uniquely positioned to launch insurance companies and programs using our innovative proprietary technologies. One of our primary goals as a service provider is to change the way that companies enter new markets or launch new products by leveraging the latest in technological advances, incorporating insurance processes and industry specific factors to deliver solutions much quicker and more cost effectively than has been done historically while improving quality."

"Our partnership with Dovetail enables them to offer their outsourcing customers a well engineered, modern technology solution, which gives carriers like NetComp the ability to move quickly when they see an opportunity in the marketplace," commented Steve Hall, Duck Creek's President and CEO.
