FUMIC selected Ebix to support their current business and future product development and to provide enhanced operational efficiencies for their growing agency distribution channel.

EbixAdvantage is a modern and powerful pure SaaS-based, multi-lingual, multi-currency system, designed to cater to the complete range of general insurance activities such as client management, policy administration, rating and quoting, claims management, accounting, and document management while providing an option to do comparative quoting for direct broking operations of insurance carriers, MGA's and brokers.  

"Ebix's industry knowledge, depth of functionality, SaaS based technology, and end-to-end solution approach were key in our selection of Ebix," said Mark Anderson, General Manager – FUMIC-ND. "We are confident that Ebix will help us provide deep and broad functionality for our core operations and has the flexibility to help us quickly and effectively deliver enhanced customer service."
