RSA expands availability of electronic document download using CSIO XML standards

EZ-Docs via EDI now available for all major broker systems

Toronto, ON (Jul. 19, 2013) – Leading property and casualty insurer RSA has added Applied Systems’ TAM to the list of broker systems compatible with their electronic document delivery, opening the door to greater efficiency and streamlined workflows for almost all their brokers.

Last summer RSA announced transmission of policy documents using CSIO XML standards to brokers using PowerBroker, sigXP, and The Broker’s Workstation systems. Now brokers using TAM (v.12) will also be able to receive copies of eligible policy documents daily via CSIOnet, for attachment in their system without manual intervention.

“RSA is committed to continuous investment in our broker partners, and ease of doing business is a significant part of this,” said Donna Ince, Senior Vice President, Personal and Commercial Insurance, RSA. “We’re extremely pleased to share that EZ-Docs via EDI is now available for all major broker systems – it’s a major step forward in our ongoing journey of improving broker efficiency.”

“Applied Systems continues to deliver technology innovation and work with RSA and other leading insurance carriers to advance the business of insurance,” said Jeff Purdy, senior vice president and general manager, Applied Systems Canada. “The adoption of the CSIO XML eDoc standard for real-time information exchange is a significant technology advancement that benefits the insurance industry as a whole.”

RSA offers extensive online resources and training about EZ-Docs as well as individual support for brokers adopting paperless workflows.

“eDocs will benefit both Insurers and brokers, with dramatic new efficiencies, real cost savings and more consistent documentation,” said Brenda Rose, Vice President and Partner, FCA Insurance Brokers. “When we all work better and smarter, consumers will win!”
