Founded in 1984, Input 1 provides business process outsourcing and software solutions for the insurance premium finance industry, offering both a complete outsourced model, as well as a licensed, on-premise version of its software.

"NaviSite's comprehensive suite of solutions for ISVs includes consulting services, ranging from initial architectural planning for SaaS deployments to the development and testing of SaaS application changes required to deploy secure, reliable solutions on our virtualized VMware server platforms or managed dedicated hosting solutions."
