CSC (NYSE: CSC) has announced SafeAuto Insurance Company, a direct-to-consumer property and casualty insurance carrier based in Columbus, Ohio, has licensed CSC’s comprehensive legal matter management software, Legal Solutions Suite. SafeAuto, a new CSC client, sells, markets and underwrites state-required minimum-limit personal automobile insurance coverage in 16 states, as well as higher-limit options in multiple states, and has chosen Legal Solutions Suite to manage legal expenses and improve communication with outside counsel as the company expands operations into new geographic regions.
