During the research process we encountered many solutions for our challenge. However, none were targeted for the smaller insurance carriers. We began to research the conversion of our current raters to a web based format and we came upon SpreadsheetWEB from Pagos. The SpreadsheetWEB product provided a great solution to our challenge and had pricing options affordable for smaller insurance carriers. Pagos’ level of involvement from sale to implementation met our expectations and we are glad we chose to partner with them on this project.
