CSIO Launches Scorecard Tool for Brokerage Technology Adoption

Toronto, ON (Feb. 24, 2016) – The Centre for Study of Insurance Operations (CSIO) is pleased to announce its new Technology Scorecard tool, providing brokerages with a snapshot view of their technology adoption in comparison to the provincial average, encouraging further tech adoption for a stronger competitive position.

The scorecard builds on CSIO research used to develop its TLS eMail Security and Mobile Website adoption maps, adding data on Industry Forms, CSIOnet, eDocs, eSignatures, search engine optimization (SEO) and social media.

The research results have also been summarized in map form (see below), displaying the technology adoption average for each province. The national average across all brokerages is 56%.
