Naperville, IL (May 30, 2013) –  Instec, a leading provider of policy administration services and technology to the commercial property and casualty insurance industry, today announced the introduction and immediate availability of Quicksolver Studio, a next generation software package that enables configurability of Instec’s flagship policy lifecycle platform, Quicksolver. This new product offering aligns with Instec’s strategy of delivering complete policy lifecycle management to provide insurers faster speed-to-market and lower total cost of ownership, while reducing risk.

Quicksolver Studio is available for both on-premise and Cloud delivery.

“Quicksolver Studio is the next generation of our configuration software and provides customers increased self-sufficiency and control over their insurance content,” stated Kevin Mason, Vice President of Product Development for Instec. “We believe this level of self-sufficiency will raise the bar for configuration software in the marketplace.”

“We’re seeing a high demand for greater product configuration capabilities,” says Karen Furtado, Partner, SMA. “Insurers need solutions that can help shorten product time to market while creating efficient maintenance environments.  Products such as Quicksolver Studio are positioned to support insurers achieve these goals.”
