Web-Based Solution Helps Insurance Carriers Streamline Producer Management Efforts

Okemos, Mich., December 22, 2005 - Sircon Corporation, the only service provider that offers strategic producer-centric solutions for insurance carriers, agencies and state regulators, today announced the newest release of Producer ManagerTM 3.5, which includes multiple enhancements and improved online help functionality.

Producer Manager is an enterprise producer information management solution that allows carriers to maintain vital compliance and contract information on all individual and firm (agency, brokerage, and bank) producers. The system enables carriers to maintain information about contracted producers as well employees, across all business units and distribution channels, including the challenging issue of "shared" producers.

Producer Manager integrates with Sircon's Compliance ExpressTM for communicating with state regulators and Producer ExpressTM for managing the producer acquisition process. Producer Manager combined with Producer Express and Compliance Express provides the most advanced Producer Lifecycle ManagementTM platform in the industry. This built-in connection saves time and money by allowing carriers to appoint, terminate, and renew producers while automating the licensing and license renewal process. Producer Manager can also integrate with other backoffice systems including those used for compensation management, policy administration, human resource management, or document imaging.

"As a core component of the Sircon for CarriersTM suite of solutions, Producer Manager provides a complete data management solution that allows carriers to grow and manage their producer network with the flexibility to react quickly to business opportunities.," said Bob Nero, CEO for Sircon. "From a cost savings perspective, this solution also plays a key role in controlling IT and staff costs".
