Western Reserve Goes Live on AQS Access

Ohio Insurer Leverages Self-Development Tools and Maintenance, ISO Rates

HARTLAND, WI--(Marketwire - September 18, 2009) - AQS, Inc., a provider of policy administration systems for property/casualty insurance, today announced that Western Reserve Group's Commercial Auto business went live on AQS Access in Ohio and Indiana on September 1. Western Reserve licensed AQS Access -- plus ISO Rating Service -- for all its commercial lines in Ohio and Indiana. In time, all those lines will be converted to AQS.

"We need a system that will allow us to quickly react to the ever changing market needs," said Randy Donnamiller, Commercial Lines Manager for Western Reserve. "We have to be able to remain current with ISO rates, rules, and forms and implement our own proprietary rates and forms. We look forward to our continuing partnership with AQS as the industry and technology continue to evolve."

AQS Access has rate-quote, underwriting, and policy-management capabilities for all P&C lines -- including self-service options for product configuration. It integrates ISO Rating Service and packages ISO's loss costs, rules, and policy forms information.
