Silanis and e-SignLive Applaud CSIO eSignatures Vendor Dashboard for Insurance Brokers

MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - July 25, 2014) - Silanis Technology, the leading e-signature provider for insurance, applauds the Centre for Study of Insurance Operations (CSIO)'s eSignatures Vendor Dashboard released Monday. Included in this review was e-SignLive™ by Silanis, the e-signature choice for business.

The release of the eSignatures Vendor Dashboard from CSIO demonstrates the acceleration of e-signature use by insurance brokers in Canada. Now, with this review, brokers will be able to research e-signature vendors, understand the benefits and easily adopt e-signature technology thanks to the dashboard's easy comparison of a number of vendors serving the insurance market.

e-SignLive customer Petley-Hare Limited recognized the benefits of e-signatures early on: "The adoption of emerging technologies can increase efficiency and create more effective relationships with our customers. We've recently contracted with our first e-signature partner and are looking forward to adding another tool to our tool belt that will facilitate a more seamless customer experience," said Petley-Hare Limited owner, David Hare.

The benefits of e-signature technology extend beyond its ability to offer an improved customer service and convenience. According to a recent blog series by the author of CSIO's Advisory Report: Electronic Signature and Delivery Daniel Fabiano, Partner with Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP, there are obvious and powerful advantages to an e-commerce platform. A well-designed electronic process can heighten compliance measures, increase security, and enhance business intelligence, all resulting in risk mitigation.

"With broker dealers driving the majority of insurance sales annually in Canada, CSIO has created a reference for both insurance carriers and brokers, enabling them to offer a better customer experience while reducing costs and creating compliant transactions," said Silanis Technology CEO and co-founder Tommy Petrogiannis. "Technology has evolved so there is choice as to whether the broker dealer or the carrier offers the e-signature technology."

For insurance brokers looking for further information on the Canadian legal best practices for e-signatures in insurance, Silanis has produced a recent webcast available for download called Insurance Documentation: E-Signature & E-Delivery and featuring Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP Partner, Daniel Fabiano.
