CSIO Releases eSignatures Vendor Dashboard

Toronto, ON (July 21, 2014) – The Centre for Study of Insurance Operations (CSIO) is pleased to announce the release of its eSignatures Vendor Dashboard, a new resource designed to facilitate the research of eSignatures solutions within the broker channel.

Based on vendor research conducted by CSIO, the Dashboard reviews eight eSignatures solutions available in Canada against the following criteria:

  • Legislative and regulatory compliance;
  • Workflow efficiency and user experience;
  • Pricing and support.

“eSignatures technology enables customers to easily sign insurance documents electronically via computers, tablets and smartphones,” notes Catherine Smola, President & CEO of CSIO. “The resulting transactions are fast, secure, verifiable and paperless, improving customer convenience and reducing costs for brokers. Using the Dashboard is an excellent first step for brokers when deciding to investigate a solution that best fits their organizational needs.”

The Dashboard and other educational resources on eSignatures, including the CSIO Advisory Report, videos and articles, may be accessed at CSIO.com/eSignatures.
