Mar. 22, 2013 – iter8, a leading software solutions provider to the insurance industry, is pleased to announce that Aviva Canada has gone live with a real-time new business upload solution for Aviva’s Leisure & Lifestyle RV Insurance point-of-sale system. This allows brokers to make inquiries, obtain new business quotes and bind new policies all in real-time. L&L is an expanding market and providing brokers with ease-of-doing-business comparable to other personal lines products is an important step for Aviva.
iter8 participated in the development and integration of the solution using communic8™ to map data from the point-of-sale front end to the Aviva policy administration while leveraging CSIO XML standards.
Greg Somerville, Aviva’s Executive Vice President, Broker Distribution commented, “Working with iter8, we have created an electronic bridge between RV Tarif and LeisureQuote broker-facing web sites and the Aviva policy system so that we can seamlessly capture and process new business. This is another example of Aviva making it easier for our brokers to do business in the Leisure & Lifestyle space.”
The communic8 implementation takes the information provided by the brokers and integrates it with Aviva back-end systems, providing underwritten policies back to brokers. The same communic8 software supports several other critical Aviva initiatives involving real-time and batch integration for upload and download. Aviva’s eDocs solution, currently under development, will leverage the communic8 platform as well.
Glen Piller, President of iter8 commented, “Aviva is a leader in continual innovation and the application of new technology in order to enhance integration and ease of doing business with their broker partners. We are extremely pleased to be associated with a company in which new technology is a priority”. He added, “communic8, and the newer communic8 real-time™ represent core products in iter8’s market leading insurance transactions technology services.”
