Technology Innovation Award Finalists Announced by IASA

IASA and Ward Group announced that Accident Fund Insurance Holdings, CNA Insurance, and Scottsdale Insurance are finalists for the 2013 Technology Innovation Award, which is sponsored by both organizations.

The announcement of the finalists took place during the 2013 IASA Annual Educational Conference & Business Show in Washington D.C. Jeffrey Rieder, partner for Ward Group, announced the finalists and outlined the process for the selection of the winner, which will take place at the IASA Executive EDGE Conference Sept. 29 and 30 in Hartford, Conn.

The finalists will present project details to an audience of their peers at the IASA Executive EDGE Conference, during which attendees will vote to select the winner of the award.

"The judging committee was impressed by the number of quality submissions received this year," says Rieder. "We look forward to seeing each finalist's case study presentation at the Executive EDGE Conference, having the opportunity to select a winner from this distinguished group, and being able to share such important innovations with the rest of the industry."

The finalists' submissions were judged by an industry panel to determine the most innovative and which best demonstrated delivering measurable business impact in the insurance industry. The panel of industry experts who participated in the judging of the award submissions included individuals from Catholic Mutual Group, Tech Decisions and PC360.com, QBE North America, Nolan Company, Ward Group, Insurance Networking News, and Insurance & Technology.

"This new judging format allows for increased peer recognition for the winners and offers educational opportunities about innovative leaders for all our members," says Celeska Fredianelli, vice president of financial planning and analysis for QBE North America and chief information officer for IASA.
