We were attracted by Policy Expert’s proven track record, market-leading data management and reporting capabilities, and the expertise and vision of its leadership team. We are looking forward to a long and successful relationship to support Policy Expert’s continued growth,” according to Colin Johnson, Accredited CEO.
