(Toronto – February 13, 2023) – CSIO is pleased to welcome Wynward Insurance Group and Maple Mutual Insurance Company as its two new insurer members.

Wynward Insurance Group

Wynward Insurance Group has been insuring Canadian businesses for more than 100 years and is proud of its distribution channel exclusively through their valued brokers. The insurer plans to leverage CSIO’s Application Programming Interface (API) Data Standards and the resources in the CSIO Reusable Services Library. In doing so, their ultimate aim is real-time data exchange with their broker partners’ broker management systems.

“The shared use of APIs is integral to the long-term success of the broker channel,” said Darryl Levy, President, Wynward Insurance Group. “We are confident that Wynward Insurance Group has the tools and technology needed to implement real-time data exchange for the benefit of our broker partners and our customers.”  

Maple Mutual Insurance Company

Maple Mutual Insurance Company has operated for over a century and continues to expand its broker network and open new offices while remaining committed to the Dresden, Ontario community. They will be using CSIO’s My Proof of Insurance solution to securely send their customers electronic pink slips and insurance policy documents, and integrate CSIO Data Standards into their rating tool to further enhance quoting capabilities.

“Growing our presence in the broker channel has enabled Maple Mutual Insurance Company to reach new customers with increasingly diverse insurance needs,” said Dean Muharrem, Interim President and CEO, Maple Mutual Insurance Company. “Technological advancements to our operations have played a key role in ensuring those needs are met and we look forward to continuously leveraging technology to further improve the customer experience.”

Working Together

“I welcome Wynward Insurance Group and Maple Mutual Insurance Company to CSIO’s ever-growing member network,” said Catherine Smola, President & CEO of CSIO. “Our suite of Standards and solutions are created and enhanced through industry collaboration.
