April 21 2020: Hubio Technology (Hubio), a provider of Property & Casualty (P&C) insurance solutions that enable frictionless transactions, is pleased to announce that Saskatchewan Mutual Insurance Company (SMI) has implemented real-time policy inquiry with their Brokers.

SMI chose Hubio’s collabor8, a digital platform allowing brokers to request and receive an instant and accurate snapshot of their insured’s coverage, claims, and billing details without ever leaving their Broker Management System (BMS). This is achieved through real-time integration of the BMS to SMI’s core transaction system via Hubio’s established collabor8 SaaS platform.

The solution is a win-win, delivering efficiencies for SMI and giving their brokers timely and accurate information to efficiently service their customers. The solution is designed to adhere to the Insurance Brokers Association of Canada real-time data exchange principles using CSIO standards.

Deployment to SMI’s full broker force has started and will continue throughout the year. The launch of policy inquiry is the first of a multi-phase digital transformation at SMI. The program includes the use of Hubio’s collabor8, a multi-line P&C digital platform that increases broker and underwriter productivity via straight through processing and a slick User Experience (UX).

Phil Henville, CEO of Hubio commented, “We are excited to embark on this journey with SMI and are thrilled to be working with a partner that is looking to redefine what it means to be a digital insurer. The collabor8 Policy Inquiry solution will enable SMI to focus on their core operations while also providing best-in-class service to their broker partners and end customers.”

“We have already received great feedback from test brokers on our new Broker Inquiry Solution, ”said Shelley Willick, President and CEO of SMI. “We are very excited to continue the next phases with Hubio to increase our digital footprint, which will enable us to provide better service to our Brokers and policyholders.”
