TORONTO, Ontario, Canada – June 22, 2012 – Keal and SGI CANADA have entered into a significant partnership by signing an agreement to install Keal’s application in SGI CANADA’s Broker Model Office. This agreement includes full technical and application support, to benefit brokers across the country.
“Our Broker Model Office provides us with the tools to better understand our business partners’ workflows and systems by mimicking the broker environment,” says Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO of SGI CANADA. “Keal’s technology and support fits our strategy of becoming a stronger eBusiness organization and makes it easier for brokers to do business with us.”
Keal, SGI CANADA, and their mutual brokers will now be able to work together to provide better EDI (Electronic Data Interface) integrity, as well as coordinate more efficiently on special projects such as electronic reconciliation of accounts and eDocs using XML standards. Keal is making available its API (Application Program Interface) as well as demos of its products and training on these to SGI CANADA’s Broker Services support team.
“We are now building bridges between brokers, insurers and BMS vendors for the benefit of the entire broker distribution network,” says Pat Durepos, President, Keal Technology. “We are extremely excited with this approach.”
