Pembridge Insurance Company Launches Second Phase of Broker Connectivity

MARKHAM, ON, Feb. 16 2011 – Pembridge Insurance Company announces the launch of Broker Connectivity Upload, the second phase of a joint venture with Brovada Technologies that offers real-time transactions aimed at improved broker workflows.

Last November, Pembridge delivered Single Sign On and Inquiry functionalities using a combination of Brovada’s NexCenter and NexExchange solutions. Broker Connectivity Upload allows brokers to begin and end a new business transaction in their own Broker Management System, ensuring a straightforward approach for Pembridge brokers which will significantly enhance customer experience. In response to the needs of their brokers, Pembridge has become one of the first insurers that doesn’t require the use of a portal.

“Pembridge Insurance Company has listened to the needs of our brokers to improve data exchange by offering them a more efficient way to access real-time information. The launch of Broker Connectivity Upload in partnership with Brovada Technologies demonstrates our continued commitment to making it easier for brokers to do business with us.”, said Bob Tisdale, President & COO of Pembridge Insurance Company.

“The first time I processed an auto application with Pembridge’s Broker Connectivity Upload, I couldn’t believe how fast and easy it was. This solution allows me to provide better service to my customers by making my office more efficient and my records more accurate.”, said Hilary Santelli, Dawson & Keenan Insurance.

Brovada’s Broker Carrier Connectivity solutions connect Broker Management Systems to Insurer Systems for processing Inquiry, New Business and Endorsement transactions all in real time, eliminating the need to re-key data.

“Brovada set out from day one to provide brokers enhanced connectivity and productivity, all with the end goal of single entry. We continue to execute on that strategy and are pleased to add Pembridge to our growing list of NexExchange supported companies.” states Karl Greenlaw, CEO of Brovada.
