InVEST® is pleased to announce that Applied Systems, a global provider of cloud-based insurance software, has donated $35,000 to the program.
Reid French, Applied CEO, announced the donation during a keynote presentation at this week's Applied Net 2018, the flagship conference for Applied software users and the largest gathering of independent insurance professionals in the world.
The InVEST contribution coincides with Applied Systems' 35th anniversary and reflects the company's continued commitment to investing in the future of the industry.
“Through Applied's generous gift to the InVEST program, young insurance professionals will be better equipped with financial literacy, insurance education and scholarships," says Bob Rusbuldt, Big “I" president & CEO. “Companies, educators, volunteers, agents and industry leaders like Applied Systems are key to the success of the InVEST program. We applaud and thank them for their commitment to this critical program."
A longtime InVEST advocate, Applied Systems also donates software used in insurance education courses and has supported InVEST with awareness-building media campaigns.
“The insurance industry is changing as the next-generation of professionals enter the workforce," French said. “InVEST is actively shaping the future of our industry with academic programs, online education and scholarships for high school and college students, and we are proud to continue our support and partnership with this outstanding organization."
