Seibels has a rich history in Columbia and the insurance industry. The first commercially available policy administration system for carriers came out of Seibels in the 1970s. Fast forward to today, and there are numerous insurance technology and services providers in the industry. On a local level, take a look at the 15+ member companies in Columbia’s Insurance Technology and Services Cluster, iTs|SC, which is “dedicated to promoting the Greater Columbia area’s wealth of opportunities within the insurance technology sector.” All of these companies are nestled in our Famously Hot capital city and contribute to the growing economy in SC.
