Denver, CO—May 16, 2019—Vertafore, the leader in modern insurance technology, today announced it has acquired VUE Software (VUE) to complement its Sircon solutions and create the most powerful insurer distribution management platform in the industry.
Founded by Computer Solutions & Software International (CSSI) over two decades ago, VUE Software offers configurable solutions to meet the unique needs of the Life and Annuity, Health, and Property and Casualty markets.
