Zywave stems from the business unit of a large Midwest insurance firm
who pioneered the first software-as-a-service, or SaaS, insurance claims
data tool. SaaS was barely an emerging concept in 1992, but the tool was
highly successful. In 1995, the business unit went independent and the
newly formed Zywave began offering insurance brokers first-to-market,
mission-critical software rooted in industry expertise.
With deep industry insight, Zywave's focus on providing clients innovative
ways to differentiate and grow their business evolved into insurance broker
marketing communications, agency automation, client portal and data analytics
technology tools that continue to set the industry standard. In 2010, Zywave
acquired Specific Software Solutions to offer clients workers' comp mod analysis
as a point of competitive differentiation.
