TechCanary Announces Availability of Insurance Platform for Canadian Market

Staff Writer | July 31, 2017

TechCanary, a provider of a cloud-based, analytics-driven insurance solution, announces the availability of its broker management system on the Salesforce AppExchange, designed for the Canadian insurance market, empowering businesses to connect with their customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. 

The original TechCanary platform serviced the Canadian market for brokers selling group benefits products. This enhancement provides Canadian brokers and insurers with additional Canada-specific capabilities supporting personal and commercial property & casualty (P&C) lines of business.

With the Canadian insurance market a key region for TechCanary, the development and introduction of the TechCanary BMS offering provides a disruptive insurance technology on a proven platform designed to address the unique requirements of Canadian insurers and brokers. In addition to TechCanary’s support for both P&C lines of business and group benefits, region-specific functionality includes support of CSIO data standards and downloads, and integration with PowerSoft Development’s Canadian comparative rating solution.

“Canada is definitely a strategic market for us and key to our growth plans. We’ve been doing business in Canada for some time, but have really seen a significant increase in demand for our platform in the region over the past year.  We thought it well worth the investment to build in additional capabilities that are unique to the Canadian market and expand the portfolio of Canadian lines of business we support,” says Reid Holzworth, TechCanary CEO and founder.

“The insurance industry is facing major disruption with new entrants and today's customers expect smarter and faster service on their channel of choice. This makes it critical for brokers to deliver more responsive and predictive offerings to differentiate themselves in a highly competitive market,” says Saima Shaukat, vice president, financial services, Salesforce Canada. “Leveraging the Salesforce Platform, TechCanary’s solution is designed to accelerate growth by empowering brokers to build deeper relationships, supercharge productivity and engage with customers at anytime and on any device.”

Existing TechCanary Canadian client, Tim Miller, president of Capri Insurance, says, “We appreciate TechCanary making such a significant investment in the Canadian market. We’ve been using the TechCanary solution for some time for group benefits and are enjoying a multitude of benefits. If I tried to take it away from our users, I’d probably be facing a mutiny. We now have a single view of the customer after consolidating our databases and are able to easily track our sales and complex commission processes. And the customization is the best, enabling us to add and remove lines of benefits for policies and customize reports to meet virtually any reporting need we have.”
