A company called Agency Records Control (ARC) began as a card tabulating service for independent insurance agents. ARC was the precursor to what we now know as Vertafore, while card tabulating was the precursor to what we now call computers.
ARC introduces a minicomputer system with software specifically built to meet the needs of independent insurance agents.
With almost a decade of preliminary successes under its belt, ARC acquires Agency Data Systems (ADS). Soon after, the ARCom’s User Group is formed, a precursor to the modern-day NetVU
ARC merges with a similar, but newer, company called Agency Management Systems (AMS). The resulting company, known as ARC/AMS, begins marketing an in-agency micro-computer.
ARC/AMS is acquired by Hellman & Friedman and JMI Equity, and takes on the name Vertafore.
Amidst the changing technological landscape, Vertafore shifts its focus from product to market-focused segments, including Agency, Carrier and MGA/MGU specific software.
Vertafore acquires QQ Solutions, rounding out its status as the largest and most complete portfolio of Agency Management and Rating solutions for the independent insurance channel.
Vertafore is acquired by private equity and tech giants, Vista Equity Partners and Bain Capital. Amy Zupon is hired as Vertafore’s new CEO.
Vertafore acquires RiskMatch, a business intelligence and analytics company that provides industry-leading portfolio management and placement solutions to insurance brokers and carriers.
The first Vertafore “Center of Excellence” and our new corporate headquarters opens in Denver, CO.
Vertafore acquires VUE Software to expand our capabilities and provide a complete distribution management solution that does not exist with any other single provider.
Vertafore, the leader in modern insurance technology acquired VUE Software (VUE) on May 16, 2019, to complement its Sircon solutions and create the most powerful insurer distribution management platform in the industry. With this transaction, Vertafore expands its suite of insurer solutions with VUE's distribution technology. The resulting solution, Vertafore’s Distribution Management Suite, improves operational efficiency, minimizes risk, upgrades the distributor experience, and organizes the entire distribution management lifecycle.
Life at Vertafore
We’re growing, successful, and striving to be the best. We are good at what we do. We especially like bright, talented people who enjoy working in an energetic team environment, and who are always striving to learn and improve. Our industry leading technology is highly recognized, and the people that create our technology are absolutely the best.
At Vertafore, we believe great people make a great company. If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you.
Vertafore cares about the health and well-being of its employees.
Corporate life incorporates one of the most often-discussed topics in human resources: Work–Life balance. People frequently debate what should be done and what shouldn’t be done to ensure harmony in the work place. Striving to provide the best possible work culture, we blended “life” as an integral part of work. We realize that it’s not just technology that keeps evolving; it’s also the people who work on those technologies that change in their demands and aspirations. We’ve set up internal committees to define new programs to respond to the ever-changing needs of our employees while retaining fun as a key element. This process has served us well and we continue to walk that path.
At Vertafore, we take a 360° view to ensure our employees’ well-being. We understand that the right mix between fun and work brings forth the best from everyone. It is this celebration of work and play that helps us in creating a vibrant environment for all our associates to grow with a positive spirit.
Like many corporations that believe in social responsibility, Vertafore thinks it is important to give back to society, particularly in local areas where we live and work. We have initiated and continue to explore several programs where we can make a difference.
Our first initiative “Vertafore Cares,” started relatively small with big aspirations. The Vertafore Cares Team is interested in helping various segments of society, but our main focus is on helping needy children (orphanages), elders (old age homes) and those with physical/mental challenges and creating social awareness of health and the environment.
