Vancouver, BC – November 8, 2010 – SCM Risk Management Services (RMS), in partnership with the Insurance Brokers Association of BC (IBABC), is pleased to announce the official pilot launch of iClarify services in British Columbia. More than 50 brokerages across the province have been selected to take part in this testing phase, which is expected to continue throughout the remainder of 2010, with a province-wide release targeted for the first quarter of 2011.
“We’ve been watching with great interest the development of this product and its roll-out in Ontario. We’re now pleased that BC brokers get their chance to put it to the test in their daily operations. We’re looking forward to hearing what brokers have to say about it,” said Chuck Byrne, Executive Director of the IBABC.
