Surety broker that specializes in non-traditional markets uses iAutomate: Erlon Surety to streamline and manage workflow processes

WESTBROOK, ME – May 12, 2009 – The Insurance Automation Group, a Workgroup Company and Applied ConneXion® Integrating Vendor, announces that CCI Surety, Inc. has chosen its iAutomate: Erlon Surety workflow automation solution. CCI specializes in underwriting non-standard surety bonds, and iAutomate: Erlon Surety enables it to manage the specific notification and reporting processes required for that market space while streamlining its entire surety workflow processes.

CCI provides surety bonds to contractors that are entering the commercial marketplace.

“We researched a number of systems before deciding on iAutomate: Erlon Surety. Current users shared their great results, and recommended the product highly. And the company was extremely responsive in answering our numerous questions,” says Michael D. Williams, President, CCI Surety, Inc. “We believe iAutomate: Erlon Surety will help to make CCI even better at what we do every day in the Surety world.”

“CCI works with a market sector that requires it to track and manage a large volume of information – a challenge that requires a reliable and efficient automation solution,” says Jeff Bucci, National Sales Manager, Insurance Automation Group. “We’re pleased that CCI chose iAutomate: Erlon Surety to streamline its surety bonding workflow processes.”
