Certified Integration Partnership further extends Assurex Global Partners’ access to innovative software solutions
University Park, IL – July 6, 2017 – Applied Systems today announced the release of an Applied Certified Integration between the Assurex Global Passport solution and Applied Epic. The Applied Certified Integration expands risk sharing business opportunities, increasing Assurex Global Partners’ ability to serve their global clients.
Assurex Global is an exclusive partnership of the most prominent independent insurance agents and brokers in the world. The Assurex Global Passport integration with Applied Epic via Applied SDK enables Assurex Global Partners to more easily share clients’ risks between their partner agencies. In addition, it improves insureds’ access to policy information through seamless document exchange between Assurex Global Partners using Applied Epic and the Passport system. Via the Passport integration, Applied Epic users can now transfer documents in a few simple, secure steps, while staying within the Applied Epic application. Further, this enables documents to be easily shared at the client or policy level of another Assurex Global broker’s Applied Epic application. Simultaneously, the Assurex Global Passport system logs the document exchange and also maintains a copy of the document, improving staff productivity.
“As a global partnership, our brokers are focused on providing superior service for shared clients across the world,” said Jim Hackbarth, president and chief executive officer of Assurex Global. “In expanding our partnership with Applied, Assurex Global Partners are able to more seamlessly share and manage risks between firms, ensuring the best protection and superior service for their clients.”
