Applied Systems Obtains CSIO Certification for eDocs

Toronto, ON (Nov. 4, 2013) – The Centre for Study of Insurance Operations is pleased to announce Applied Systems has obtained CSIO Certification for eDocs.

“Applied Systems is pleased to be recognized as the first insurance technology vendor to receive the CSIO eDocs Certification for both Applied Epic and Applied TAM,” said Jeff Purdy, Senior Vice President of International Operations at Applied Systems. “The ability to move documents electronically from insurer to broker to consumer is critically important in today’s ever-changing marketplace. Participation in the CSIO Certification process reinforces Applied Systems’ continued commitment to the industry and the enhancement of standards for document distribution and efficiency.”

CSIO data exchange standards are company neutral and help solve data compatibility issues, facilitate more efficient and seamless integration of information and improve implementation of technology solutions.

“As an increasing number of brokers across Canada adopt CSIO eDocs, the need for consistency in standards implementation becomes vital to the competiveness of the broker channel,” says Catherine Smola, President & CEO of CSIO. “We applaud Applied Systems on being the first technology vendor to receive CSIO Certification for eDocs, signifying its commitment to delivering automated workflows that serve customers faster and more efficiently.”
