Insurance software provider Applied Systems announced Wednesday the general release of Epic 7, the latest version of the company’s broker management system.
This is the first time Applied’s Epic system has been commercially available to brokerages in Canada. Earlier this month, Applied held a launch event in Toronto to explain some of the new elements of the system to the broker community.
Some changes include:
“This release of Applied Epic 7 is another example of our commitment to innovation and developing the most advanced technology for the insurance industry,” Reid French, the company’s CEO noted in the announcement.
“We continue to expand our offerings with solutions that drive greater value for our customers and are pleased to now provide the most advanced agency management system in Applied Epic 7 throughout North America.”
Alberta-based brokerage Western Financial Group, which has more than 120 locations, has already begun implementing Epic 7 across its network. In a blog post, the company’s president and CEO, Jeff Burke, noted that new technology will be the most important element of Western’s growth.
“A software system alone is not going to catapult any company in front of its competition,” he wrote. “Rather, it provides a foundation for success and growth.”
