The XCelent Functionality Award for the best solution in the “Breadth of Functionality” category is based on several criteria, including the power and ease of use of rules, workflow, product configuration, and document management capabilities; basic, advanced, and additional functionality for the base offering; references’ view of features and functions; and number of deployments for various personal and commercial lines of business.
