Accessing Producer Data

2 Producer Data Web Service

The Producer Data Web Service (PDWS) is a web service that provides real-time, up-to-date access to producer records. This service is the XML version of the same data that is available to a user accessing the Producer Manager application. It can be used by a carrier system to access data.

This service is expected to be used on an as-needed basis as events occur during the producer lifecycle. It is not intended for regularly scheduled refreshes of the entire producer population. For this purpose, please call your account manager to engage with Vertafore's Professional Services department.

Sample Use Scenario—Producer Portals
Some carriers have created producer portals to give distributors access to producer and product information. The Producer Data Web Service can be used in a producer portal to show an agent's license and line of authority information, so any discrepancies can be resolved by the licensing services department.
