With this in mind, The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. today announced the addition of several new businesses owners (BOP) and commercial package policy enhancements for its technology product suite.

"The Hanover really came to the table with a product that didn't just meet our needs, it exceeded them," said Arthur Bruinooge, who leads that technology practice at Cross Insurance Manchester.
