Northern Mutual Contracts with Marias Technology

Marias Technology, of Piqua, Ohio, announced today the signing of Northern Mutual Insurance Company to a contract for insurance technology services. Under the agreement, Marias Technology will provide Northern Mutual with system hosting and system management assistance for their policy administration system. Since 1999 Northern Mutual has used The Diamond System, the award winning policy administration system from Insuresoft, LLC, for policy administration. Marias Technology and Insuresoft entered into an agreement in 2011 in which Marias provides value-added services such as system hosting, system management, and system testing as complements to The Diamond System.

In the agreement with Marias Technology, Northern Mutual will utilize the functions and features of The Diamond System in their own office, but the system will be hosted and managed from the Marias datacenter in Covington, Ohio. Northern Mutual will use Marias resources and their insurance technology experience to establish a stable environment in which to do business with their agents and policyholders.

“We are very excited to be working with Northern Mutual,” stated R. Christopher Haines, Vice President of Marias Technology. “By hosting the system at our datacenter, with our resources assisting with the day to day administration of the system, Northern Mutual can harness the power of The Diamond System without being overwhelmed by the challenges often associated with operating a policy administration system.”

“We are pleased with our decision to contract with Marias to host our system. This will allow us to spend more time on the business of insurance instead of spending so many hours managing IT functions,” said Mike Godby, President of Northern Mutual Insurance Company. “We also feel very strongly about the benefits of a more secure site with backup power, and other redundancies in place that will provide our agents with a much more reliable system.”

About Marias Technology: Marias Technology offers insurance technology services to small to mid-sized insurance companies. Services range from system hosting and management, to business process outsourcing solutions, such as system testing, implementation services, and print and mail services. Marias also specializes in availability services, providing business continuity solutions, workplace availability, and cloud-based backup. Marias Technology is headquartered in Piqua, Ohio, with a datacenter and availability lab in Covington, Ohio.
