Kentucky National Insurance Company (KNIC, Lexington), a provider of dwelling insurance and preferred-risk, private passenger automobile insurance in Kentucky and Tennessee, has selected Marias Technology (Covington, Ohio), a provider of software testing and implementation services to the insurance industry, to test changes being made to the carrier’s legacy administration system. The firms say that the engagement is likely to be expanded to further testing of the insurer’s new, end-to-end processing system, currently in early stages of development.

John Miner, President, Kentucky National Insurance Company.

“Given the great deal of experience Marias has, and the number of systems they’ve successfully worked with, we have confidence they could do everything we needed to have done,” comments John Miner, President, Kentucky National. “The Marias team knows our business and quickly got to work with little-no learning curve and limited ramp-up time.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Marias will test changes to the Kentucky National legacy system, as dictated by current business needs, and in parallel, will provide user acceptance testing for the KNIC’s replacement system.

“We’re very grateful for this opportunity to work with Kentucky National,” comments Chris Haines, President and CEO, Marias. “We’re happy to have the opportunity to leverage the knowledge we have acquired through a vast number of successful insurance technology projects to help Kentucky National achieve their goals.”

KNIC’s market proposition features a combination of local service, competitive rates, and business expertise, highlighted by distribution exclusively through independent insurance agents in local communities.
