“Acuity focuses on creating a workplace culture that promotes growth and advancement of employees of all ages, genders, and backgrounds,” said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO. “Our workplace initiatives have had a significant impact on staff recruitment, development, and retention, including millennial women.”

The ACORD Case Study Award is presented to organizations that have demonstrated how the implementation of ACORD standards significantly improved business processes. Acuity earned two awards—one for using ACORD-based services to support real-time online integrations with independent agencies and one for utilizing ACORD standards to interface with HSB to deliver additional products to agents and customers.

“Acuity’s work to build integrations, using ACORD standards, between our rating and policy systems and those systems utilized by agencies and digital platforms allows agents to focus on providing guidance and coverage customization, rather than entering data,” said Marcus Knuth, Acuity Vice President – Enterprise Technology.
