NU Online News Service, April 3, 1:50 p.m. – Antares Management Solutions, Westlake, Ohio, and Westfield Services Inc., Westfield Center, Ohio, a unit of the Westfield Group, have formed a marketing alliance.

Antares sells technology and claims-processing services to health insurers, and Westfield sells similar services to life and property-casualty insurers.
