Topa Insurance Group Selects Core in the Cloud with ISCS’s SurePower Innovation®

Cloud deployment via SurePackage and Amazon Web Services provides reliability, redundancy and scalability.

San Jose, CA - December 14, 2016 - ISCS, developer of cloud-based, property and casualty (P&C) insurance software solutions, is pleased to announce Topa Insurance Group recently selected SurePower Innovation® implemented via ISCS's cloud deployment option, SurePackageTM, to handle all of the group's core administration needs, and to serve as a platform for innovation and growth.

Topa Insurance Group includes several specialty insurance companies and solution providers, including Topa Insurance Company, Alphyn Universal Insurance Solutions, Dorchester Insurance Company, NevPac Reinsurance, and Topa Insurance Services, located throughout California, the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). Beginning in Topa Insurance Group's home state of California, this implementation will focus on the company's commercial lines of business, including commercial property, commercial package, general liability and excess liability, sold through an exclusive network of wholesale brokers and general agents across all of the company's subsidiaries.

"We selected SurePackage on AWS Cloud because ISCS on AWS provides a robust foundation for innovation, growth and efficiency," said Brian Schween, CIO for Topa Insurance Group. "The resulting business agility and ability to stay current with future product releases will strengthen our focus on ease of doing business for our partners and customers."

During the selection process, SurePower Innovation's configurability, services-based architecture, and cloud offering with advanced business intelligence (BI) capabilities hit all the right notes with Topa Insurance Group. Further, executives from Topa Insurance Group agreed that ISCS's implementation track record, investment in research and development (R&D), and comprehensive insurance business knowledge, stood out from the ranks of other companies in contention for selection. 

"Consolidating to a single, highly-configurable platform will make it easier for our customers to do business with us, allow our talented employees to design and deliver even more innovative products and services, and increase internal efficiency," said Schween.

"As the bar continues to be raised on customer service and experience, 24x7x365 accessibility, and speed of doing business, the ability to provide core administration in the cloud has become a key differentiator for ISCS," said Andy Scurto, president of ISCS. "We have been working quietly with AWS to provide state-of-the-art cloud hosting and services to the insurance industry since 2008. We couldn't be more impressed with the level of service and commitment to delivering a quality experience AWS has enabled ISCS to provide to insurance clients ongoing."
