North Star Mutual Selects iPartners BI

The business intelligence platform will be delivered via a software-as-a-service model.

Cottonwood, Minn.-based North Star Mutual Insurance Company has selected the Insurance Scorecared business intelligence platform from Atlanta-based iPartners.

The goal is to gain robust reporting and analytics environment, dashboards, scorecards, key operating metrics, and detailed analysis.
