Anchor General Insurance Agency sets master plan in motion for future growth with successful implementation of Decision Research Corporation’s DecisionMaker™ Suite Stand-Alone Rating Module to service their Personal Auto line of business.

This technology upgrade marks the first in Anchor General’s plan to execute a series of phased implementations with DRC, which will result in a complete system upgrade, including, Portal, Quote, Policy, Billing, and Claims.  

John Amat, Vice President of Anchor General notes, “We have worked with DRC’s system and team for many years.  Their flexible and adaptable products and forward thinking team made the decision to upgrade our rating engine an easy one.”  Amat adds, “We look forward to being able to take advantage of all the rating system’s offerings including the configurable product templates, secure and controlled environment, and its adaptability to the changing market.  With the initial rating roll-out underway, we have begun the installation of DRC’s new Claims system which will be followed by Policy Administration and Billing, as part of our phased upgrade and conversion plan.”

DRC’s President Karen Yamamoto offers, “With the implementation of DecisionMaker Rating, Anchor has taken an important step to transition full rate program build and maintenance to the business units, thereby reducing IT’s involvement to initial integration and final migration”  Yamamoto adds, “This innovative new model of collaboration between the business units and IT, along with DecisionMaker Rating’s speed and flexibility contributes directly to Anchor’s goals of increased operational efficiency and positioning for future growth.”
