An Insider's view of DAIS Technology

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There is a lot of positivity radiating around the office. People are energized about the many improvements and low hanging fruit to remedy the situation that small to mid-sized insurance companies face. This a problem we are absolutely going to solve, and we’re going to have fun doing it.
