Toronto, ON (Dec. 23, 2013) – Keal Technology announces that they are now CSIO eDocs Certified. This national program demonstrates that Keal’s Broker Management System (BMS), sigXP, which is a leader in utilizing the CSIO (Centre for Study of Insurance Operations) XML eDoc standards, has now achieved CSIO Certification. This means sigXP’s integration solution can be uniformly applied to all insurance companies who follow the CSIO XML standards for eDocs across Canada.
The eDocs process uses CSIO data standards to transmit via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) attaching an XML message to the transmission. The eDoc process, implemented by Keal, automatically attaches a pdf copy of electronic documents, such as a declaration page, directly to the insured’s file in sigXP without human intervention on a broker-defined schedule. sigXP automatically creates an Activity (historical record) with each eDoc transaction for brokers to search, report, or audit against. eDocs is supported by Keal’s BMS, sigXP and Document Management System, dokXP.
Bill Redford, Director of Development at Keal Technology, said: “Keal is excited to be one of the first BMS providers to be certified with this program. While working with CSIO to create the eDoc standards it was clear to us that CSIO was demonstrating its commitment to responding quickly to the changing needs of the industry. This CSIO Certification Program is a great driver to ensure we are all using the standards to create unified and efficient solutions which is what we need CSIO to continue to do.”
“We congratulate Keal Technology for achieving certification,” says Catherine Smola, President and CEO of CSIO. “With a CSIO Certified solution, Keal affirms its commitment to a unified, standardized approach to data transfer facilitating industry-wide workflow efficiency and cost savings.”
Keal now offers its CSIO Certified eDocs solution with Aviva, Intact, RSA, Gore Mutual, Economical, Wawanesa, Northbridge, Portage Mutual and SGI CANADA.
