Keal and Economical Insurance Announce Commercial Integration

Keal Technology’s comXP to upload to EXPRESS™, a web-based commercial application from The Economical Insurance Group®.

TORONTO, ON, November 12, 2008 – Today, Keal Technology and The Economical Insurance Group® (TEIG®) have announced a joint venture to integrate their systems for the benefit of their brokers.

TEIG’s® web-based commercial application, EXPRESS™, will integrate with comXP, Keal’s commercial management system (CMS). The synergy created by the advanced combination of the robust architecture of comXP and the ease of use of EXPRESS™ will now allow brokers to employ a single entry commercial workflow by uploading small commercial property package information from comXP directly to EXPRESS™.

“EXPRESS™ was the first comprehensive technological solution for small and medium sized businesses in the Canadian market, and remains the coverage and ease of doing business leader,” stated David Crozier, Vice President of Commercial Insurance for TEIG®. “Integration with comXP will capitalize on its advantages, and further streamline our brokers’ processes. That results in better service and more competitive premiums for our customers.”

“We are very excited to deliver comXP integration to TEIG® brokers,” said Pat Durepos, Keal President. “Keal is committed to bringing increased ease of doing business for brokers. Using the proven existing technologies of both comXP and EXPRESS™, brokers will be in a position to increase productivity and better serve their clients. This will be the first of many projects with TEIG® to simplify processes and bring added value to our broker clients.”
