Brovada Obtains CSIO Certification for eDocs

Toronto, ON (Nov. 16, 2013) – The Centre for Study of Insurance Operations is pleased to announce that Brovada Technologies has obtained CSIO Certification for eDocs.

“We’re dedicated to giving our customers the best user experience possible. By obtaining CSIO Certification for our eDocs solution, we’re confident that brokers and insurers using our technology will support eDocs downloads as efficiently as possible,” says Michael Wright, Senior Vice President of Operations at Brovada. “We recognize the value of providing standards-based solutions and are thrilled to be among the first vendors certified.”

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.

“We applaud Brovada for taking the initiative to apply for and ultimately obtain CSIO Certification for eDocs. This accomplishment signifies Brovada’s commitment to helping brokers serve their customers more efficiently,” says Catherine Smola, President & CEO of CSIO. “It is encouraging to see more P&C industry stakeholders obtaining CSIO Certification for eDocs as this indicates a widespread commitment to the principle that technology solutions should be implemented consistently across the broker channel, rather than in proprietary ways.”

CSIO Certification is available to member insurance companies and vendors. eDocs is the first business activity available for certification, with plans to expand the program to cover other activities.
