Say It, Do It

We honor every one of our commitments because integrity is important to us.

We've served the insurance industry for more than 45 years. We're with you for the long haul.

Vertafore is Born!
1969

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.

Computing Meets Insurance
1975

ARC introduces a minicomputer system with software specifically built to meet the needs of independent insurance agents.

A Growing Organization
1976

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.

New Partners, New Opportunities
1984

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.
