Executive Summary

Providing property and casualty insurance protection for homes, autos, farms, and businesses, Minnesota-based North Star Mutual has been in business since 1920. The company wanted to provide independent agents with new Web-based services to cut turnaround time on quotes and improve service. North Star Mutual reduced insurance quotation times from days to just seconds with a new Web-enabled solution running on a Unisys ClearPath Plus Libra server. Unisys innovative pay-for-use business model allowed North Star Mutual to tap into the server processing power needed to meet peaks in demand while containing costs. North Star Mutual relies on a ClearPath Plus Libra Model 590 server and its metering software to "Dial up" resources meet the unpredictable peaks in demand that are typical of the Internet.
