Staff Writer | December 20, 2016

Oragami Risk, a provider of software and services to the risk and insurance industry, announces it has acquired Claimwire, a provider of automated workers’ compensation forms, compliance resources, and regulatory information to the insurance industry.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Origami Risk, Claimwire will continue to operate independently and maintain all of its services to its clientele of insurers, third party administrators, risk managers, and software vendors. In addition, the acquired firm’s employees, including Steve Schmutz, CEO of Claimwire, will remain in their respective roles at Claimwire.

“At Origami Risk, we have always employed state-of-the-art automation within our model in order to maintain the industry’s most satisfied customer base while achieving steady growth,” says Aaron Shapiro, executive director, Origami Risk. “Claimwire is a valuable outsourced regulatory compliance resource for many claims organizations, serving up-to-date workers’ compensation rules, forms and tools on a silver platter of automation. Adding Origami’s expertise and support to Claimwire ensures the future of this resource for TPAs, insurance carriers, self-insureds and for other software vendors throughout the industry. This was an excellent opportunity for us to offer efficiency to our customers, partners and many other users.”      

“This combination is truly a win-win for both organizations and our clients,” says Schmutz. “We are thrilled to be part of Origami Risk. We look forward to enhancing Claimwire’s capabilities through the expertise and resources Origami will contribute while affording us the opportunity to operate independently, and to continue serving all segments of our clientele.”
