Electronic Signature Solution Increases Efficiency and Expedites Authorizations
ORLANDO, FLA. (April 26, 2010) — AssureSign LLC’s Electronic Signature Technology has been selected as the electronic signature solution by Western Computer Services, Inc. (WCSI), the Software as a Service (SaaS) provider of policy management and claims management for a growing list of Farm Bureau Insurance companies.
In general, Farm Bureau Insurance markets insurance products to business and consumers in some of the most rural areas of the United States. A significant challenge to serving these regions is securing the business after a quote has been given to a potential customer; most consumers don’t have fax machines, and travel in many parts of these regions, for both the customer and the agent can be quite time consuming and cumbersome.
AssureSign’s Web-services enable WCSI to embed electronic signatures into their insurance application, for seamless integration into their existing business process. Applications are routed to the insured’s email for signature or in the agent’s office, and the signed document triggers policy creation and delivery to underwriting and imaging for archival.
Since the entire AssureSign Electronic Signature process is tracked digitally, users have a complete forensic audit trail of the delivery and signing process. This enables users to know exactly when documents are received, when they are signed, and who has or has not signed them, providing users with complete control over the signing process. With the implementation of AssureSign, Farm bureau Insurance can follow the signing process from start to finish and receive notification the moment that signing is complete.
Implementing AssureSign Web-based electronic signatures greatly helped WCSI and Farm Bureau Insurance’s customers and their agents with the customer acquisition process. The sales process has become much more timely and efficient, and the costs associated with faxing and mailing documents has been eliminated.
Philip Teagle, Application Development Director for WCSI noted, “Incorporating AssureSign’s web based electronic signature into our policy processing systems has opened up new channels for our customer’s agents to be more agile in conducting business, and has eliminated the need for distribution and maintenance of digital signature equipment for agents using our systems.”
“The true benefits of AssureSign electronic signature applications are recognized when they are deeply integrated with existing business applications, such as Farm Bureau’s web-based policy system,” said David W. Brinkman, president and chief executive officer of AssureSign LLC. “This integration allows for document creators to automatically create documents from within existing applications, triggering front- and back-end workflow, so the entire process saves the organization both time and money.”
