HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - April 6, 2010) -  Connective Technologies announces the contract signing of TEAM-UP™ Download with Old Missouri Mutual Insurance Company for download servicing of premium information with their independent insurance agencies.

TEAM-UP provides once-and-done download processing in an industry compliant, data-secure environment.

Keith Rollings, Company Manager of Old Missouri Mutual, states, "TEAM-UP download further reinforces our neighborly, friendly founding principles for making it convenient for agencies to do business with us. We researched the marketplace, reviewed our peer competitors, surveyed our agencies and determined that TEAM-UP is the leading market provider for real time agency downloads. Our agents are excited about receiving daily downloads of their premium data and being able to leverage additional simple and secure features that TEAM-UP offers directly from the Internet."

Dic Marxen, President and CEO of Connective Technologies, adds, "Old Missouri Mutual is our fifth Rural Computing Consultants ("RCC") farm mutual client in the last couple of years to adopt TEAM-UP. Our overall dominance in the mutual market continues to flourish as carriers seek out strategic investments in premier automated services like TEAM-UP for making it easier for agencies to do business with them."

TEAM-UP is an Internet-secure offering with a clientele, representing both carriers and vendor alliances of over 70, in providing accessibility to over 30,000 communicating agency pairs using more than 40 different agency management systems throughout every region in the United States. Now in its third major release, the product has matured to ensure agencies have a seamless migration from other download processes. The improved self-reliant features such as single-policy, real-time archival retrievals by the agents, improved group management distribution and tracking features that ease and accelerate the registration process for both agencies and carriers, have been implemented with TEAM-UP's Service Oriented Architecture. This environment ensures a seamless fit into carriers' existing agency portals and incorporates a single-process entry point at the agency for accessing multiple carriers downloads.
