We are continuously focused on the ease of doing business aspect of our business, and having the ability to import new and renewal quotes, including the complicated automobile coverage for policies of all premium sizes, is a tremendous efficiency gain for our partner brokers” states Peter Silk, Senior Vice President – Business Processes for Lombard Canada.

The import function that we have piloted for some time – now in full release – is a very positive step forward from Lombard. I was always concerned about the duplication of work despite many of the other benefits of Business Choice, however, the duplication issue has been eliminated making Business Choice an even more valuable tool in our office, a tool that only Lombard offers.” stated Mark Lowry, President – Dale and Morrow Insurance
