Centric Revamps The Motorists Insurance Group Web Portal With Jahia Enterprise Edition

Regional Multi-Line Insurer Completed Major Web Presence Overhaul With Jahia's Web Content Integration Software 

WASHINGTON, DC--(August 26, 2009) - Centric, a leading management and technology consulting company, today announced completion of the new web presence for Motorists Insurance Group. Jahia, the premier Open Source web content integration software, has been chosen to power all external knowledge sharing solutions of the regional multi-line insurer. Motorists Mutual Insurance Company is the lead company in The Motorists Insurance Group, based in Columbus, Ohio. The group of companies is composed of nine property and casualty, life insurance and brokerage companies that operate in 25 states. At year-end 2008, the group of companies had $641.7 million in net written premium and $541.3 million in policyholder security funds.

The Motorists Insurance Group engaged Centric to manage and execute the multi-phased project to enhance their web presence. Working with The Motorists Insurance Group team, Centric redesigned six public-facing web domains and five company internal domains, and moved them onto Jahia. The project scope included building an agency dashboard that included several portlets that allowed agents to access policy and quote data across life, auto, home and commercial business. The dashboard provided a measurable increase in agent efficiency and satisfaction.

"Jahia fulfilled all of our criteria in regards to unifying our content. What we found most valuable was that Jahia not only offers web content management, document management and portal features, but that it fully integrates with standards based architecture using the latest technologies," explained Chad Caldwell, Senior Partner at Centric. "Equally important, the software met all the relevant regulatory standards while being open source. Jahia couples the innovation of open source with the stability of a true enterprise-class Content Integration platform, and makes it simple to capture, search and collaborate on content whatever source it comes from."

"Thanks to Jahia, our information and knowledge sharing process is permanently up to date, and is being performed without the need for IT. Thousands of agents and insured members are using our IT solution based on Jahia's Enterprise Edition and thus benefiting from all these functionalities," explained John Kessler, VP of IT, The Motorists Insurance Group.
