Edge Mutual Announces New Broker Integration Functionality Using Custom Software’s I-Company Solution

Drayton, ON (Apr. 21, 2017) – Edge Mutual Insurance Company and Custom Software Solutions Inc. (CSSI) are pleased to announce the release of New Business and Policy Change integration functionality for both Private Passenger Vehicle (PPV) and Habitational (Hab) lines using CSSI’s I-Company solution.

Effective April 1, 2017 Edge Mutual brokers can seamlessly submit new business and make mid-term policy changes for PPV and Hab from their Power Broker broker management system (BMS) using a Mastercom plugin, or Applied Systems BMS using Warp. The data is uploaded for real-time rating and submission on Edge’s back-end policy management system (Titan) using I-Company. Further BMS integrations will be announced as they are completed.

“We are very excited to be going live with new business and policy change allowing our Broker Partners to gain ease of doing business with Edge Mutual as well as allowing Edge to be more efficient in the process. Edge partnered with CSSI to provide a non-vendor specific portal solution open to the majority of our Brokers. This is an exciting first step”, stated Ruth Donkersgoed, President and CEO of Edge Mutual.

“Edge Mutual and CSSI have worked on this project over the last number of years leveraging knowledge from both organizations to begin to deliver an automated efficient solution benefiting both Edge Brokers and the Company. We will continue on the path to integrate with additional BMSs and to deliver further efficiencies,” stated Brock Andrew, COO of CSSI.

Edge Mutual and CSSI have started the rollout of the integration effective April 1st with further announcements to follow.
