Insurance technology and strategic solutions provider StoneRiver announced the recipients of its Excel Awards during their annual client conference, the StoneRiver Summit, this week.

In this third year of the Excel program, the Excellence in Value Achievement Award recognizes recipients in five categories for innovative methods of maximizing the value of StoneRiver solutions to achieve corporate goals and improve business results. StoneRiver recognized Amica Life Insurance Co. for its resourceful use of solutions and positive return on investment in supporting business objectives.

“We appreciate the recognition with this award,” stated Steve Dolan, VP, Life Finance, at Amica Life. “One of the most important decisions when embarking on a major technology project is selecting the right strategic partner. We’ve worked with StoneRiver for nearly 18 years on various system implementations towards our goal of straight through processing. Together, we’ve effectively managed budget and scope control of our projects, while providing a better customer experience and a solid return for our stakeholders.”

The Excel Award for Excellence in Project Management honors organizations for implementing best practices to achieve project milestones in a progressive manner while implementing and maintaining StoneRiver applications. Allianz Life Insurance Co., TASB – Risk Management Services and BrickStreet Mutual Insurance received recognition.

“The successful implementation of any system is dependent on software that meets the business needs; project management routines that ensure execution; and a mutual respect of all team members working toward a common implementation goal,” stated Tony Laska, SVP and CIO at BrickStreet Mutual Insurance Co. “BrickStreet has chosen StoneRiver’s PowerSuite software to enable our business to grow. Our project was large and complex, with an aggressive time line. I am excited about the recognition awarded our internal team and our StoneRiver partners. This implementation is truly a team effort.”

The Excellence in Technical Innovation Award was presented to organizations that are highly rated in progressive use of technology through implementation and integration of StoneRiver products. The winners named in this category were Liberty Mutual, Country Financial Insurance Group and Pekin Insurance.

Customer communities are the foundation of the StoneRiver client conference.  The Excel Award for Excellence in Customer Community Leadership recognizes individuals for overall superior leadership within the customer communities for their respective StoneRiver products.  Clients receiving this honor were FBL Financial Group and Merchant Mutual Insurance Group.
