Schenectady, NY – Keystone Insurers Group has identified DocStar as the premier solution for document management software for its agency partners. DocStar will offer educational seminars about the paperless office as well as preferred pricing for Keystone Partners.

As part of a document management education initiative, DocStar will sponsor live educational webinars for Keystone partners. “We have had a great relationship with several Keystone agencies,” says Tom Franceski, President and CEO of DocStar. “We understand what it means to be a service provider. Our goal is to help Keystone agencies achieve higher productivity and improved customer service while increasing the value of their agency.”

Keystone partner Jim Huckabee, a principal at Dominick, Huckabee, Noblin and Trent has been a DocStar user since 1999. “DocStar is the best, most efficient use of time and money to operate our agency more efficiently and help our bottom line,” Jim said, “We enjoy the fact that our staff does not have to run around looking for paper and lost files!”

DocStar offers users a familiar, easy-to-use interface and provides software integration with most agency management systems, including: The Agency Manager, Instar, AfW®, AMS360® and Sagitta.
