BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--USI Insurance Services ("USI") announced today that it is ranked 100 in the 2013 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology. USI has ranked in InformationWeek’s top 500 for the past two years, but this is the Company’s first time earning a prestigious spot in the top 100.
“Every enterprise is now a digital business—or needs to become one fast. The companies in our ranking are leading the way.”
This award was given in recognition of USI’s innovation in collaborating across the industry with carrier partners to electronically receive insurance documents, verify the document types, and then automatically route them via a workflow engine to the appropriate recipient and work process, thus saving significant time and resources.
Stewart Gibson, USI’s senior vice president and chief information officer, said, “We are extremely honored to have ranked 100 in this year’s InformationWeek’s 500 ranking. Being selected to be in the top 100 is an extraordinary testament to USI’s commitment to enhancing our technological resources through innovation and investment.”
"The theme of this year's InformationWeek 500 is digital business. It's a movement, rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and other customer-focused technologies that are turning companies and industries on their ear," said InformationWeek editor in chief, Rob Preston. "Every enterprise is now a digital business—or needs to become one fast. The companies in our ranking are leading the way."
Gibson added, “As USI continues to be on the fast track for growth, our technology must grow and evolve, too. We have responded to the increasing digital demands of our clients and employees by constantly looking for ways to improve how we interact and communicate. I am excited to be in this top-tier group of technology innovators, and I look forward to USI continuing to lead the charge in our industry for years to come.”
