Covington, Ohio — (GLOBE NEWSWIRE — March 6, 2019) — Marias Technology, a provider of software testing and implementation services to the insurance industry, has been contracted by Farmers Union Mutual Insurance Company of Montana (FUMICO) to help define specifications for — and to test — FUMICO’s new core processing system.

“Kerri Bekker and her team were welcoming right from the start,” said R. Christopher Haines, President and CEO of Marias. “Putting the interests of their policyholders and agents first, they understood the importance of getting their system conversion done promptly and accurately. We’re proud and grateful for their faith in us.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Marias will help ensure system specifications are complete and accurate. Marias also will perform the requisite testing, including QA, regression, and UAT.
