Michael Spiar, Broker Relations & Communications Specialist, CSIO | Alberta Broker, Aug. 2018
Say goodbye to paper! With CSIO’s My Proof of Insurance eDelivery solution, Alberta brokers can deliver digital auto insurance cards (eSlips) and policy documents to customers for all lines of business — even if your carrier partners are not using the solution themselves.
What’s more, My Proof of Insurance is available at no additional cost to all CSIO members as a core benefit. If your brokerage is a member of IBAA, you’re automatically a member of CSIO.
The solution allows brokers to create a fast, easy and convenient digital experience for consumers, who receive their documents by secure email—no apps, portals or log-ins required.
Happy Clients Make Happy Brokers
“The client satisfaction alone is well worth it to sign up,” says Otilja Majewski, marketing broker lead at Elevate Insurance in Grande Prairie. “This is a very technological age. Everything is on your phone. To have the eSlips literally at your fingertips is huge for every client out there.”
Hundreds of brokerages across Canada have signed up since the solution launched in February, sending thousands of digital documents to insureds in a short amount of time.
For Elevate Insurance, the benefits of using My Proof of Insurance were immediate—even without regulatory approval of eSlips in Alberta. “We just tell clients that this is a simple way to get your pink card, it’s secure in your smartphone’s digital wallet, but you still have to have the paper,” explains Majewski. “And they’re fine with that. They run with it, and they’re happy— particularly when picking up new cars at the dealership.”
Broker workflow is fast and efficient for Elevate, even though its broker management system (BMS) has not yet integrated with My Proof of Insurance. “It took me maybe five minutes to set up our templates, and the system guides you where you need to go and what you need to do,” says Majewski. “While we look forward to integration with our BMS, the ease of the system alone is well worth signing up for. The quick return that clients get on the eSlip is worth it.”
“We are very happy with this solution and the benefits it will provide to our members,” says IBAA CEO George Hodgson. “A simple, standardized option for providing a digital experience to consumers is precisely what many brokers are looking for when it comes to sending policy documents, and this solution will meet that need.”
