The Texas Lawyers’ Insurance Exchange (TLIE; Austin, Texas), a provider of malpractice insurance for Texas lawyers and judges, has selected Insurity’s (Hartford) core property and casualty insurance software suite, Bridge, including the Bridge Policy AdministrationBridge Claims, and Bridge Billing modules. The specialty insurer plans to replace existing core processing systems with the Bridge Insurance Software Suite to modernize its operation, gain improved efficiencies, and enhance system security, according to a vendor statement.

TLIE’s modernization effort was prompted by the insurer’s realizing that it needed to change out its core infrastructure to be able to meet the evolving product and service expectations of its member insureds, according to Insurity. TLIE chose Bridge owing in part to the breadth and depth of the offering as well as the system’s configurability and flexibility to address TLIE’s unique product and process requirements, Insurity reports. The vendor says the insurer was also impressed with the strength of the Bridge professional and skilled staff able to support the implementation effort as well as provide on-going support for TLIE’s long-term success.

“The quality of the Insurity team was just as important to our decision as the Bridge products themselves. We look to have a long-term quality vendor partner and felt strongly that Insurity was a good fit for our organization,” affirms Jett Hanna, Senior VP, TLIE. “We look forward to enjoying all that the Bridge solutions have to offer our operation and our policyholders.”

Configurable to Specific Needs

“We are thrilled to have been selected to replace TLIE’s current technology platform,” comments Lani Cathey, chief revenue officer, Insurity. “It is especially important to specialty insurers like TLIE to have a system that has the flexibility to be configured to their specific product and processing needs—and these are the exact goals we had in mind when designing and developing our solutions.  We look forward to working closely with the TLIE team to meet its goal of a production environment in late 2018.”

Insurity describes the Bridge Insurance Software Suite as specifically designed to streamline processing for property and casualty (P&C) insurers, brokers, and MGAs. Bridge features Smart Configuration (no programming or scripting) to provide a system that is configurable by business users. The vendor asserts that Bridge enables a high degree of self-sufficiency, and can handle multi-lingual and multi-currency transactions.
