We are proud of our team for their creativity and vision. By developing this unique, web-based platform, risk managers now have access to a faster and more efficient way to complete this time-consuming process.” Clients recognize ACE Risk Management for its commitment to service and the development of innovative technology solutions. Mr. Merna further remarked, “We built ACE Accelerator in response to a specific need identified by our clients. And, because all of the work was completed in house, we were able to incorporate client and broker feedback at every critical juncture. As a result, they helped to make ACE Accelerator what it is today.” To learn more about the 2013 Business Insurance Innovator Awards, please visit their website.
