Building Something Big in Denver
We've served the insurance industry for more than 45 years. We're with you for the long haul.
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 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.
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.
