This year the seminar will occur on Wednesday May 3, 2006 at the Ontario Bar Association Conference Centre in Toronto Ontario
The use of standards in the Canadian life insurance industry is gaining momentum as efforts within the industry over the past few years are finally reaping results for companies. For our 2006 annual seminar, we will be examining:
The results of a CLIEDIS commissioned study on trends in the use of
the ACORD XML for Life data standards. The report shows a real momentum
towards the use of standards in the industry. Byren Innes, Senior Vice
President and Director at NewLink will discuss the results.
FundSERV’s VP Customer Relations, Stuart Reynolds will speak about
how FundSERV played a primary role in the mutual fund industry ensuring the
widespread use of standards and what lessons the insurance industry can
learn from their experiences.
CITS (Canadian Insurance Transaction Standardization) is creating
energy within the industry that has never been seen before. The drive to
use ACORD XML for Life to communicate with business partners began in 2005
and is gaining momentum with new initiatives continuing this year. Hear
how CLIEDIS provided the driving force to get this project done and is
providing leadership for future initiatives.
Developing systems and communicating with business partners using standards is a strategic business decision that makes sense and dollars. This seminar is a must for senior executives who recognize the need to respond quickly to today’s business demands and how this momentum will affect your decisions in 2006 and beyond.
Meet vendor members who are implementing solutions with the ACORD XML for Life data standard. Take the opportunity to network with other professionals in the Canadian financial services industry over breakfast and lunch.
