What are your thoughts/reactions to the recent Vertafore/Progressive announcement?
After carefully reading the recent press release on the new Progressive/Vertafore interface, you will notice the conspicuous absence of ACORD standards being mentioned. The interface is described as a "direct download." Since the use of ACORD standards is predominantly highlighted in any press release, how is the data being exchanged?
The press release also does not mention IVANS (owned by Applied Systems), only the "direct download" description is used.
