The awards recognize insurers, service providers, and technology firms that demonstrate leadership in the development and implementation of automation in insurance. According to Insurance-Canada.ca principal Doug Grant, the awards were developed to celebrate organizations that successfully realize the benefits of technology in improving service, reducing costs, and increasing productivity.
York Fire and Casualty received a "Best in Class" ICTA for their implementation of real-time policy change processing through their agent/broker portal the York Connection. Development of the portal and agency/broker connectivity was completed by iter8 and York. The connected portal enables independent agents/brokers to transact all business in a manner they prefer. For labor-intensive policy change transactions, agents/brokers can make the necessary changes within their Agency/Broker Management System, and connect seamlessly, in real-time, through the York Connection to make changes within the York Policy Administration System or they can simply access the York Connection on-line and make policy changes in real-time.
