Springboard Managed Hosting says it has signed a multi-year agreement with Builders Mutual Insurance Company (BMIC) of Raleigh.

BMIC, which has more than 12,000 policyholders, markets property and
casualty insurance to the residential building industry in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin. It began as the N.C. Home Builders Self Insurers Fund Inc. in 1984 and converted to a mutual company in 1998.

Springboard says it will provide BMIC dedicated managed hosting, security and monitoring, management of its corporate website and a new web-based rating application to improve the efficiency of the entire underwriting process.

The new online application ensures that the BMIC agency network can input rating data, receive a quote, complete company specific edits, print a completed application, and electronically submit the completed application to BMIC for additional underwriting in less time than traditional paper based methods.

“They are a rock solid Triangle company that is nationally recognized for its business focus, financial performance and steady, sustainable market growth,” Rich Lee, chief executive officer of Springboard, said in a statement. “We’ve been providing hosting services to them for over a year now, and the fact that they decided to entrust us with their new online sales application speaks volumes about our relationship and the service levels we have been able to provide BMIC’s internal technical staff.”
