NIP Group Brings Policy System In-House with Selection of Instec Platform

Instec, the market leader in insurance software for commercial program and specialty writers, announced today that NIP Group has selected the Instec Policy system, for its Specialty Programs business.

NIP Group’s carrier partner supported the company’s move to own their system. Instec reports that it has seen several carriers take this stance. It provides the carrier relief from the burden of supporting a system for the MGA, while benefiting the MGA through unrestricted access to their data. In NIP Group’s case, since their carrier partner maintains an Instec system for its own use, compliance is simpler because both companies run on the same software.
