IRMI Online Wins Best Of Show In BI Competition

Dallas, TX, November 8, 2002Business Insurance magazine has recognized IRMI Online, the online version of the complete IRMI reference library, as Best of Show in the Educational/Professional category in its 2002 Best of the Web Award competition. The Best of the Web Award was created in 2001 to recognize and promote excellence in Internet-based services for corporate risk and employee benefits executives.

Websites designed primarily for the buyer of commercial insurance services were invited to submit their sites for consideration. To be considered, entries were required to be freestanding sites on the World Wide Web, not private intranets or Web-enabled software. A panel of 10 independent judges reviewed and scored entries, judging such elements as functionality, interactivity, design, innovation, and relevance to the buyer of commercial insurance services.

IRMI Online provides direct access to the IRMI reference library over the World Wide Web. This reference library contains more than 22,000 pages (in print form) of risk management and insurance analysis, tactics, and advice. Subscribing to the library online makes it available from any computer connected to the Internet, allows for instant updating by IRMI (as opposed to receiving pages through the mail to file in binders), and gives the user the ability to electronically search the references for answers to questions or solutions for problems.

The award-winning site can be visited at
