ABSTRACT
The article focuses on factors to be considered by U.S. insurance companies before signing a contract with information technology vendor. Dave Homan from McGohan Brabender advises insurers to have extensive googling, requesting a client list and calling referrals and lost customers. It is also important to look for warning signs like inflexible software and problems with system reliability and scalability. Open communication with technology partners is also vital to a long-lasting relationship.
