Our Story

Way back in 1991, Eddie Price, an entrepreneur by nature, started his own insurance agency.  Carolina Insurance, was founded in the small town of Forest City, NC. As the agency grew, Eddie realized that he would need to move from the world of paper to the world of technology. This would allow him to continue to grow as an agency and service his customers. The agency needed an agency management system so he built one. He decided what he wanted in a system and off he went.  Eddie began exploring other agency management systems as well.

Time for School

It was not long before he came to the conclusion that they were expensive.  And he was not finding exactly what he wanted in a system. So, he took programming courses and began to develop his own. Eddie was an insurance agent by day, a programmer by night. The team began using his system in his agency and named it Jenesis, after his daughter, Jenna.

It was not long before some of his agent buddies expressed an interest in the system. So, Eddie loaded his truck with a full size PC, a 17-inch monitor and 12 floppy disks, and headed out to demo his product. And, as luck would have it, he sold his first system! Then, another!  Before he knew it, a new business had formed.

Jenesis is Born

Jenesis Software was incorporated in 1999, and it now is fortunate to have agencies using the system throughout the US. The same care and commitment Eddie has always shown for agency customers is shared by the entire Jenesis team. There is nothing more important than providing personal service and a quality product! Because it’s built by an insurance agent, Jenesis has an incredible foundation that has only gotten better over time. Our software is our pride and our customers are our passion!
