Gore Mutual Insurance Company Obtains CSIO Certification for eDocs

Toronto, ON (June 26, 2014) – The Centre for Study of Insurance Operations (CSIO) is pleased to announce that Gore Mutual Insurance Company has achieved CSIO Certification for its eDocs solution.

“Gore Mutual is thrilled to be recognized by CSIO’s Certification program for eDocs,” says Sara McLennan, Vice President of Marketing and Broker Services at Gore Mutual. “We join CSIO’s efforts to find ways to improve efficiencies for our broker partners and we look forward to expanding our current offering.”

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. 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.

“As a company that prides itself on being a paperless organization, we applaud Gore Mutual on receiving CSIO Certification for eDocs and continuing its long tradition of delivering service excellence to its broker partners,” affirms Catherine Smola, President & CEO of CSIO.

Since its launch, the CSIO eDocs standard has seen a significant increase in adoption across the broker channel. To assist brokers in calculating the time and costs savings of eDocs, CSIO has developed an eDocs Savings Calculator. Available on its website, the calculator allows brokers to determine the daily, monthly and yearly time and costs savings gained through the adoption of eDocs.
