Raleigh, NC, Sept. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
RegEd, the leading provider of Licensing and Registration technology solutions to the financial services industry, today announced that Alerts 2.0, a module of its Xchange Enterprise Licensing and Registration solution, has processed more than 1.5 million alerts since its launch earlier this year. Alerts 2.0, through integration with the NIPR Producer Database (“PDB”), significantly expands the range of data for which firms can receive automated change notifications and systematized, timely reconciliation with the firm’s back-end database.
“Monitoring, updating and maintaining accurate credentialing data continues to be a challenge for insurers and distributors, and is especially burdensome for firms with a large number of producers” said Kristy Locklear, Senior Vice President, Product Management at RegEd. “Processing 1.5 million alerts to date demonstrates the solution’s ability to drive efficiency at an enterprise scale. This approach to managing producer data is rapidly becoming the gold standard.”
Using Alerts 2.0 insurers and distributors can automatically identify changes, and then reconcile and synchronize those changes with the firm’s back-end database.
Dani Fields-Damato, Vice President, Marsh USA Inc., an early user of the solution, commented, “Within the first three months of using Alerts 2.0, our Agency has received more than 300,000 alerts notifying us of data changes on PDB. We were able to review these changes and update our database with minimal intervention. This is a major advancement in our journey to managing by exception.”
For carriers, Alerts 2.0 automatically updates licensing data without the need to rely on individuals or distributors for updates. Distributors benefit from automatic notifications on appointments. In the event that producers are appointed by carriers that are not approved or do not have sell agreements, Xchange notifies the distributors immediately, enabling them to take corrective action.
Alerts 2.0 will be among the solutions featured by RegEd at the upcoming SILA National Education Conference in San Antonio, Texas, on September 18-21, 2016. During the conference, RegEd representatives will highlight the firm’s innovative enterprise solutions for contracting/onboarding, appointment processing and credentialing management.
