2012 RAVE Award Winners Revealed

Hoboken, NJ, May 10, 2012 - Tech Decisions and Novarica announced the winners of the third annual 2012 RAVE Awards this week.  The award program recognizes outstanding insurance software and IT service providers based on feedback from their customers.  Insurance technology decision makers at carriers completed a Novarica ACE (Average Customer Experience) Ranking survey for their vendor to be eligible for a RAVE Award.  

Customers rated their vendor and the solution in five specific areas: staff, organization, functionality, technology, and overall satisfaction. The categories included: agent connectivity, agent portal, claims, document management, financials, life policy administration systems, p&c policy administration systems, reinsurance administration, service, and other.

 “The RAVE Awards were designed to recognize those solutions that are delivering exemplary value to their customers as measured by those customers themselves,” says Matt Josefowicz, partner and managing director for Novarica. 

James Daggett, publisher of Tech Decisions, believes the RAVE Awards provide a valuable tool for solution providers as they provide input on what carriers like and don’t like about their solution partners. 

“This is our third year doing the RAVE Awards and what we have learned from the software companies and insurance carriers is that technology solutions involve a true partnership,” says Daggett. “We are proud to present the RAVE Awards and we congratulate those companies that have demonstrated superior value for their customers.”
