RegEd Reaches 15 Million Alerts Processed on Credentialing Data Management Solution

RegEd Reaches 1.5 Million Alerts Processed on Credentialing Data Management Solution

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.

RegEd Revolutionizes Producer and Adjuster Licensing Maintenance with Fully Automated Credentialing Data Management Solution

RegEd Revolutionizes Producer and Adjuster Licensing Maintenance with Fully Automated Credentialing Data Management Solution

RegEd, the leading provider of Licensing and Registration technology solutions to the financial services industry, today announced that it has launched Alerts 2.0, a module of its Xchange Enterprise Licensing and Registration solution. Alerts 2.0, through integration with the NIPR Producer Database (“PDB”), will significantly expand the range of data for which firms can receive automated change notifications and systematized, timely reconciliation of changes with the firm’s back-end database.

“Maintaining accurate, up-to-date individual and agency information can quickly become overwhelming for insurers and distributors. With the sheer volume of daily updates, it’s impossible to maintain current records across the firm’s population using a manual process. At the same time, as regulator focus on this process intensifies, inaccurate information can lead to significant consequences,” commented Jacob Spitzley, Senior Product Manager at RegEd. He continued, “Automated monitoring and data reconciliation offer firms a significant reduction in the time and resources required to manually check the PDB for relevant changes, and instill confidence that the firm’s records are consistently synchronized with the official filing office record.”

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., which beta tested the solution, commented, “RegEd Alerts 2.0 will increase efficiency and reduce our spending on PDB reports. The service notifies us of data changes as they occur on the PDB, and allows our licensing team to review and sync the data with the touch of a button. The saved PDB reports, audit history, and data comparison features make this functionality a must-have.”

For carriers, Alerts 2.0 will automatically update licensing data without the need to rely on individuals or distributors for updates. Distributors will 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 will notify the distributors immediately, enabling them to take corrective action.

RegEd will host invitation-only webinars in June to demonstrate the unique, innovative capabilities of Alerts 2.0. For webinar information please contact sales@reged.com.
