CSIO Launches eXchange Online Forum for Brokers, Insurers and Vendors

Toronto, ON (Oct. 20, 2014) – The Centre for Study of Insurance Operations (CSIO) is pleased to announce the launch of CSIO eXchange, an open forum for its broker, insurer and vendor members.

CSIO eXchange provides members with an opportunity to:

  • Share knowledge on workflow issues and exchange ideas that improve efficiencies in the broker channel;
  • Gain experience and diverse perspectives from industry peers on current and emerging trends;
  • Develop solutions that bring the industry together to improve the competitiveness of the broker channel.

“With CSIO eXchange, CSIO can build awareness and engagement by providing its members with online forums and discussion groups that promote open dialogue, networking and the exchange of ideas,” notes Ted Harman, President, Accent Insurance Solutions and Vice-Chairman of the CSIO Board. “I look forward to seeing the productive discussions that come out of CSIO eXchange because I’m confident they will generate ideas to improve the overall efficiency of the broker channel.”

CSIO eXchange has launched with one discussion forum – Pain Points – for positive discussions on topics related to workflow and technology pain points within the broker channel. CSIO will introduce dedicated forums for standards and forms working groups in the coming months, and members are encouraged to create new topics in the course of their participation.

An important topic currently being discussed on CSIO eXchange is commercial eDocs. CSIO invites all insurance professionals to contribute to this discussion to help generate feedback and ideas on how to increase eDocs adoption for commercial lines.
