Canadian Broker Network launches first AI automation bot

Toronto, ON (Aug. 29, 2023) – Canadian Broker Network (CBN), Canada’s leading network of independent insurance brokers, and insurance automation startup Quandri are pleased to announce the launch of CBN’s first artificial intelligence robot to transform the way CBN brokers work.

The Vancouver-based company’s robot will help CBN’s broker members save time and money by eliminating huge quantities of duplicate data entry in their broker management systems, thus streamlining data accuracy and service to their insurance customers from coast to coast.

“Having a robot for our home and auto insurer portal entry will save our members tens of thousands of dollars per year, improve processing productivity up to 800%, enhance data accuracy and customer service by enabling our members to reallocate resources towards meaningful customer value activities,” said Lorie Phair, CBN President. “CBN has always stayed at the forefront of customer-centric innovation in our industry. This is an exciting step in our modernization journey and a great example of how our members empower each other to gain the necessary solutions, service, scale and competitive advantage to help secure the future for independent brokers in Canada.”

Quandri CEO and Co-founder, Jackson Fregeau said CBN joins many other leading insurance groups that work with Quandri to eliminate hours of repetitive work.

“We are thrilled to partner with Canadian Broker Network to help brokers automate time-consuming and repetitive processes with our technology, which has been specifically trained on portal entry for Canadian Broker Network brokers,” said Fregeau.

The robot was first successfully piloted by CBN member brokerage Bauld Insurance, based in Nova Scotia. “We wanted to explore the potential of AI and Robotic Process Automation to alleviate or eliminate redundant data entry, which is so common in personal lines. This allows us to reallocate resources to our real customer value proposition: speaking with customers and providing advice,” said Steve Earle, President of Bauld Insurance.
