FINEOS will become the new enterprise-wide software solution for Thornton’s loss adjusting claims operations and provide major efficiency gains and an enhanced service to Thornton’s insurance clients. The new system offers a modern platform that will scale to meet Thornton’s predicted business growth over the next few years.
