MILWAUKEE, Jan. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zywave, the leading insurance technology provider powering growth for its partners, today released its 2020 Stewardship Report detailing the company’s unrivaled accomplishments over the past year. Highlights from 2020 include several hundred product releases and enhancements, further expansion in both carrier and P&C markets, and two major corporate acquisitions that now position Zywave as the only insurtech provider to offer a complete package of front-office solutions for independent agencies across all lines of business.

“Zywave’s objective is to serve as the most impactful business partner fueling growth for insurance organizations,” said Jason Liu, chief executive officer of Zywave. “Over the past year, we have made monumental investments in the industry to demonstrate that value and commitment to the insurance space—and we’re just getting started. As we take on 2021, our partners can expect to see even more innovation and growth, which will translate to their continued success.”

To provide its partners with the best solutions in the industry, Zywave has been heavily investing in its existing products, while enhancing its product portfolio with new acquisitions. Following are the company’s highlights from the past year.

  • A new investor relationship with Clearlake Capital Group, L.P., strengthening Zywave’s position to achieve long-term, strategic growth
  • The acquisition of Advisen and London-based subsidiary WCL, preeminent providers of data, media and tech solutions, amplifying Zywave’s existing product portfolio and accelerating its global footprint
  • The acquisition of ITC, a leading provider of marketing, rating, and management software and services, which officially closed at the end of December 2020. The combined entities enable Zywave to deliver its innovative operations, sales and marketing solutions to agencies selling employee benefits, commercial or personal lines of coverage
