OKEMOS, Mich. - January 19, 2010 — Sircon, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vertafore Inc., today announced the release of its newest web-based compliance service, ProducerEDGE™. The service gives insurance agents, adjusters, customer service representatives (CSRs), and other insurance licensees the ability to manage their own insurance licensure and compliance easily online. Licensees can also track continuing education requirements against completions and remain abreast of status changes resulting from requests to each of the 50 state departments of insurance. ProducerEDGE™ grants producers access to a full menu of compliance services such as "Apply for a license" and "Renew a license," in addition to providing them with a personalized compliance tool which remembers them each time they return, from one convenient and secure online location.
Granting producers and other licensees on-demand, self-service access to their most frequently requested compliance information, is expected to drastically reduce the number of incoming calls to generally over-burdened state departments of insurance, and will provide insurance licensees with a simple, yet powerful tool to help them maintain compliance, allowing them to focus on what they do best â€“ serve their clients.
"Providing a tool to producers tasked with personally managing their licensing and compliance is long overdue," said Gary Gummig, Sircon's vice president of government services, "Never before has an individual producer had the ability to log in to one online service and get the answers to their most common compliance-related questions. Combining that personal information repository with a full suite of compliance-related services truly gives users a distinct advantage. In short, ProducerEDGE™ makes producers more self-sufficient. We believe ProducerEDGE™ is a true game changer, and presents a major strategic and competitive advantage as we continue to serve the individual producer market."
ProducerEDGE™ subscribers are able to view each license they hold, in each state in which they are licensed, along with each license's corresponding license number, renewal date, and other important related information. Producers and other licensees can choose to be notified via email when their license is approaching a renewal deadline, and can track continuing education course completions against outstanding requirements. ProducerEDGE™ subscriptions are being offered at no cost to the producer.
ProducerEDGE™ is available to all insurance licensees via: www.produceredge.com.
