Sherrills Ford, NC – September 25, 2007 – Bouchard Insurance, the 75th largest broker in the U.S., as reported by Business Insurance Magazine, has chosen Blue Goose Technology Solutions, Inc. for their document and enterprise content management (ECM) needs. As part of their initiative to procure a sophisticated method for not only document management, but overall content management and versioning control, Bouchard researched over 30 insurance industry providers and determined Blue Goose to be the most flexible and customizable.

“With Blue Goose Technology Solutions, we did not see any limitations, only potential,” said Cathy Chafin, vice president of Information Technology for Bouchard.

Bouchard’s internal selection process began with face-to-face meetings at events, phone calls, and the submission of quotes from the over 30 vendors held for consideration. An executive committee was formed to spearhead the selection and employees were polled for their input on needs and concerns. The search was narrowed down to four vendors who were sent an RFP. Vendors were then invited to conduct a two-day demonstration where department representatives would rate them on a point system. Results were then tallied to determine the provider who most closely matched the needs of the agency overall. Blue Goose garnered the highest score.

Blue Goose met and exceeded not only their need requirements but also met many items on their wish list. “When we considered our overall objectives beyond document management, such as client Web portal, Google-like search capability, willing customization, the latest technology, and e-mail management, Blue Goose was by far the obvious choice,” said executive committee member Nancy Sheinberg.

“We were determined to include everyone, take the time needed and ask the tough questions, said Chafin. “By doing this, I believe with Blue Goose we’ve found the best solution both for our company and clients for today and in the future.”
