CSIO Welcomes IBAC's Support for eDelivery Solution

(Toronto – February 7, 2018) CSIO and the Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) are pleased to see the growing number of provincial broker association endorsements of CSIO’s eDelivery solution. The solution will enable CSIO member brokers and carriers to send digital policy documents and eSlips for personal and commercial lines to consumers.

“IBAC has been pleased to see the growing support for CSIO’s eDelivery solution from broker associations across Canada,” says Peter Braid, CEO of IBAC and Guest Member of the CSIO Board. “This solution will provide real benefits to the broker network. The endorsements from many of our Member Associations will help get the word out and educate brokers about this important resource.”

The eDelivery solution was developed by CSIO in collaboration with brokers and carriers from across Canada. eDelivery works without proprietary software applications and allows policy documents to be emailed directly to the consumer, co-branded with both brokerage and carrier logos.

“We appreciate the encouragement and enthusiasm from IBAC, and Peter Braid in particular,” says Catherine Smola, President and CEO of CSIO. “The eDelivery solution will support brokers in strengthening their value proposition to consumers, improving their ease of doing business within the broker channel.”

Release of the eDelivery solution is expected in mid-February 2018, and will be available to CSIO members at no additional cost. Visit www.csio.com/edelivery to learn more.
