Starr Insurance Holdings, Inc. Selects Adaptik’s PolicyWriter as a Policy Administration Platform

Bethlehem, PA – July 17, 2013 – Starr Insurance Holdings, Inc., a member of the Starr Companies, and Adaptik Corporation, the provider of the PolicyWriter P&C policy administration software solution, today announced that Starr Insurance Holdings, Inc. has selected PolicyWriter as its policy administration platform for its General Casualty, Energy, Environmental and Commercial Auto lines of business.

“We needed a highly configurable policy administration platform that would meet our complex commercial business needs,” said Ed Myers, Director of Underwriting Systems, of Starr Insurance Holdings, Inc. “PolicyWriter proved to be extremely flexible, intuitive and user-friendly. The Adaptik team was able to rapidly adjust their pre-configured General Liability product to meet our specific needs. While reviewing the system, we were able to see the changes we requested being made in real-time, envisioning the ease of configuring future enhancements or adding new product lines to match Starr’s fast paced growth.”

Starr Insurance Holdings, Inc. took advantage of the Adaptik Challenge to evaluate and ultimately select PolicyWriter as one of their new policy administration platforms. The Challenge highlighted PolicyWriter’s rapid configuration and prototyping capabilities. Due to PolicyWriter’s highly configurable nature, it took only weeks for a fully functional first cut of the system to be created and reviewed live by Starr Insurance Holdings’ business and operations management.

“We are proud that Starr has selected PolicyWriter as one of their policy administration solutions,” said John Pettit, President and CEO of Adaptik Corporation. “The Adaptik Challenge allowed Starr to thoroughly vet PolicyWriter and our team, and experience how quickly PolicyWriter can be configured to bring up complex new commercial lines products and solve seemingly intractable business problems. We are looking forward to a successful implementation and a strong continued partnership with Starr Insurance Holdings.”
