  • Launch new programs within 30-90 days; and
  • Advance ProSight’s digital strategy by supporting the different channels used by partners and customers.

“Our mission is to create unrivaled value for our customers by delivering unique and comprehensive solutions,” comments Darryl Siry, chief digital officer, ProSight Specialty Insurance. “In today’s market, however, it’s takes more than great products. It takes getting those products to market quickly, being able to make changes quickly and making sure your customers have extraordinary experiences on and off line.

  • Deployment in 50 states for admitted/non-admitted business; and
  • Bureau-based products (ISO, NCCI, AAIS and independent state bureaus) with deviated rates, rules and forms. Distribution via exclusive agency partners.
