Ron Dudley, ACORD's Vice President of Standards, commented "We appreciate INSTEC's membership in ACORD and applaud their commitment to utilize XML as their interoperability standard. INSTEC has long been a leader in the commercial rating market and the ongoing necessity for claims, billing, and policy administration systems to effectively communicate with the INSTEC rating engine is the perfect example of the need for standards in our industry. We look forward to working with the INSTEC team on the continued implementation of ACORD standards."
