In January 1983, while a senior in high school, Mark Malis took his first computer class. It was during this time that Time Magazine named “The Computer” as the “Person of the Year”. Mark was so fascinated by computers that, after taking just one computer class in his first semester at the University of Florida, he chose Computer Engineering as his major.
For his senior class project, Mark developed AutoFile, an agency management system for his father Gerry’s auto insurance agency. The product was so good that Gerry sold it and Mark supported it while he was still in college. The program was written on a “laptop” computer that weighed more than 20 pounds. The source code was stored on 5.25” floppy disks
After college, Mark and his dad continued selling the agency management system while Mark developed QuickQuote, a comparative auto rater. In those early days, Mark would code during the day and make copies of floppy disks at night. Frequently, he would have to deliver hundreds of floppy disks to the post office at 3:00am to get the rating updates to the agents on time.
Later, both QuickQuote and AutoFile were transitioned from DOS to Windows, and, more advanced features were added. AutoFile was renamed QuickFile, adding QuickBooks integration and document scanning, while QuickQuote added bridging and binding.
In 2003, Gerry Malis retired to spend more time with his wife Elaine and to try to break 100 in golf.
In 2009, the company was rebranded and renamed QQSolutions to better reflect the company’s mission to provide innovative technology solutions to insurance agencies nationwide.
The company, based in Deerfield Beach, Florida, was recognized as one of the “25 Fastest-Growing Technology Companies” in South Florida by the South Florida Business Journal.
In June of 2015, Vertafore acquired QQSolutions, creating the largest and most complete portfolio of Agency Management and Rating for the independent insurance channel.
