Economical Insurance Implements CSIO’s My Proof of Insurance for Digital Document Delivery

(Toronto – February 17, 2021) – CSIO is pleased to announce that Economical Insurance has implemented CSIO’s My Proof of Insurance as its preferred solution for the digital delivery of policy documents in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic region. Customers insured through Economical Insurance will now have the ability to request personal and Individually Rated Commercial Auto policy documents and liability slips to be sent securely via email. The solution also provides customers the option to store their liability slip as an eSlip in their mobile wallet.

“We continue to inspire confidence by listening and responding to feedback from customers and brokers, with the goal to make insurance simpler and more sustainable,” said Tatjana Lalkovic, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Economical Insurance and CSIO Board Member. “With our customer experience rapidly becoming more digital, we’re pleased to now offer the option for customers who prefer electronic documents instead of print.”

Launched in early 2018, My Proof of Insurance was developed as a result of industry collaboration among insurers and brokers to meet the growing consumer demand for easier and convenient digital options within the P&C landscape. Benefits of using the solution include the ability for insurance providers and brokers to send policy documents to customers across the country instantly, saving significant time and money associated with traditional paper mail. Bank-grade security built within the solution also ensures personal data is protected. Since its release, support for My Proof of Insurance has grown year over year, with 2020 seeing a 400% increase in eSlips and documents sent compared to 2019.

Economical Insurance, known for providing brokers and customers with meaningful solutions, remains committed to that promise with their decision to leverage My Proof of Insurance.

“CSIO’s My Proof of Insurance helps us provide customers a convenient option to access their insurance documents digitally,” says Lalkovic. “This advancement reflects our commitment to drive innovation in the broker channel and to help our broker partners empower their customers with reliable and innovative service.”
