FIRST Canada and Vertafore Canada announce launch of payment integration within SIG™
Ease and innovation for payments now available via FIRST Pay™ for SIG integration
MONTREAL (April 5, 2021) – FIRST Insurance Funding of Canada (FIRST Canada), the industry leader in insurance payment solutions, and Vertafore Canada are pleased to announce that innovative payment solutions are now available directly from within SIG™.
Redefine your client payment experience without ever leaving Vertafore SIG. In a few simple clicks, SIG users can now provide financing quotes and payment plans for new business and renewals along with the policy proposal, at the point of sale.
In addition, SIG users now have the ability to retrieve real-time client payment status, installment schedules, and documents, and to create “what-if” payment scenarios, all without ever leaving their BMS.
“The ability to provide payment choice and access real-time payment information elevates the brokers’ client experience,” said Stuart Bruce, CEO of FIRST Canada. “The fact that it can be done within existing workflows is a real win for SIG Brokers and their clients.”
“This partnership with FIRST Canada marks another important step in Vertafore Canada’s commitment to helping our customers simplify their business processes, as well as another step forward in our vision of being Canada’s leading ecosystem-friendly InsurTech provider,” said Dimitrios Argitis, GM and VP of Vertafore Canada.
