“Insurance Board has grown steadily over the years and we wanted to upgrade and consolidate our systems for gathering and analyzing underwriting information and generating policies for our members and participants,” said Joe K. Boyd, director of Underwriting for the Insurance Board. “Origami’s platform simplifies our underwriting process and drives efficiencies by streamlining workflows, increasing automation, and enhancing accuracy.

“While Origami’s versatile platform can accommodate specialized underwriting and policy management needs, such as those of the Insurance Board, carriers can use Origami to meet a full spectrum of their administrative needs,” said Christopher Bennett, president, Core Solutions division, Origami Risk. “Over the years, we have consistently helped our clients drive efficiencies and improve performance through a steady stream of innovation and by tailoring our tools and functionality to their individual needs.”
