With the company in the midst of implementing a new billing system, Western National Insurance Group has selected Strategic Insurance Systems Initiatives Group (SiSi Group) to provide data conversion services.

The project encompasses the conversion of both personal and commercial lines data from WNIG's two legacy platforms. Tools used will include SiSi Group's proprietary Data Evolver data conversion software.

"We knew that choosing the new billing system was only part of the battle," says Carol Arel, WNIG's Corporate Controller, in a statement. Migrating the data from the old systems, including all of the necessary data validation and clean up, also presented a sizable task. We are pleased to have found a highly qualified partner like SiSi Group to help us through the conversion work."

The project will be completed in phases with personal and commercial lines data for the two legacy systems being handled each as a standalone conversion effort.
