SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 18, 2014) -  ISCS is pleased to announce The Philadelphia Contributionship (TPC) has successfully implemented the company's SurePower Innovation® Modern Enterprise Suite (SurePower Innovation), recently going live for new business in Maryland.

"Ultimately, we selected ISCS and SurePower Innovation because their integrated suite provided agents and employees with the same intuitive user experience that enhances ease of doing business and provides opportunity for internal efficiencies," said Robert G. Whitlock, Jr., FCAS, MAAA, President and CEO of TPC. "We were also impressed with ISCS's agile implementation methodology, which we believed increased the likelihood of success."

TPC, a group of regional insurance companies that focuses on providing personal property and related liability coverages in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, sought a new, robust core administration suite to replace an outdated, legacy system.

"Since SurePower Innovation is easy to use, we expect our Maryland agents to quote our products more frequently," said Whitlock. "They now also have the ability to initiate more endorsement transactions on a self-service basis, which increases productivity for both our agents and employees. We enhanced our billing options to make our products more attractive, and finally, the technology allows us to deliver product changes to the market much faster than we could in our legacy system."

Going forward, TPC plans to utilize ISCS's SurePower Innovation as a key component of the company's efforts to achieve greater diversification within their existing geographic footprint. By relying on pre-integrated, yet modular, components to automate core administration (policy, billing and claims), TPC looks to ISCS to help streamline critical processes, create a more customer-centric environment, lower operational and system maintenance costs, and provide greater ease of doing business through self-service opportunities for agents, employees and policyholders.

"The pre-integrated components and the capabilities offered by our portal solutions were essential for TPC," said Andy Scurto, President of ISCS. "They will quickly realize benefits from being able to get products to market faster, as well as improved customer satisfaction and retention. We are looking forward to working with TPC for many years to come as we help them achieve their strategic goals."
