Today, InsuraSphere is one of the leading core administration suite solutions selected by P&C insurers every year.

"On behalf of Century-National Insurance Company's IS staff, I would like to congratulate our dear friends at IDP on this milestone achievement," said Saro Hamamah, vice president of IT for Century-National Insurance Company. "We're fortunate to engage the expertise and knowledge of the business and technical team at IDP to help guide us in setting strategies and best practices. IDP has been our technology partner since the early 1990s, and the team at IDP continues to support us through the challenges we face in running the information systems and operations of an insurance company. We appreciate all that you have done and continue to do, and wish IDP management and staff continued successes and many more milestones."

Throughout the company's history, IDP has reinforced relationships with insurance company customers to create true partnerships. In addition to Century-National, some of the company's longest-standing customers include Security Mutual Insurance Company and Kingstone Insurance Company. Having developed significant expertise in providing intuitive, agile technology solutions via a private cloud in a managed environment, IDP now also offers a robust bureau reporting service which further empowers insurers looking to minimize operational expenses and grow new business.

"We're not sitting still. IDP makes investments into our solutions and our company and our customers every day," said Joe Friend, SVP of IDP. "It doesn't take any effort to do the same thing year after year, but we're not interested in the status quo.
