Insurance software company Applied Systems announced plans to open a Canadian data center in the third quarter of 2012, in order to provide “additional data storage for the growing number of insurance brokers who choose online broker management systems and request data storage within their national borders.”
The facility will be Applied Systems’ third data center and its first outside the United States.
CEO Reid French noted that the company is “committed to helping our customers realize the greatest value from their Applied Systems software investment. As we invest further in the Canadian marketplace, the new data center will afford our Canada brokers all of the advantages of a leading broker management system with the additional advantages of the online environment.”
The announcement also indicated that “increasing numbers of agents and brokers are choosing online management systems for advantages that include enhanced security against physical and electronic intrusion, remote accessibility, and better disaster recovery. The company says agencies that have embraced the online environment report increased ability to focus on serving clients instead of administering IT.”
