Insurance Industry Leaders Gather for 2012 E-Signature Forums Series

October 3, 2012

Montreal, QC, October 4, 2012 – Silanis, the leader in enterprise electronic signature solutions with the largest e-signature deployments, today announced its series of E-Signature Forums for Insurance, which will be held this year in Chicago, IL October 25, Columbus, OH November 1, and Boston, MA November 13. Featuring speakers from IBM, Locke Lord LLP and Silanis, these half-day events will address the big questions facing insurance carriers who are considering adopting e-signature technology, like case law and regulations surrounding e-signatures, technology challenges, adoption trends, and insurance industry best practices. With analysts predicting that the majority of new business in insurance will be submitted electronically by 2016, carriers must look to enable straight-through processing of new business applications, including disclosure delivery, policy delivery and servicing, and claims and contracting with e-signatures. As an essential technology for enabling e-submissions, e-signature technology is being chosen by carriers looking to meet their customer demands for improved service in all sales channels and the desire for mobile transactions using tablets and smartphones. Carriers are also adopting straight-through paperless processing to help them remain salient in a competitive market. Sponsored by IBM, Insurance Networking News and Silanis, the half-day agenda includes:

  • The Legal Landscape: E-Signature Legislation and Case Law
  • Enterprise E-Signature Requirements
  • Best Practices for In-Person and Remote E-Signing
  • Closing Keynote: Smarter Insurance: Global Markets, Technologies and Implications
  • Continental breakfast and a networking “Birds of a Feather” lunch for attendees to deep-dive a specific topic and have a chance to network with their peers.

As the leading enterprise e-signature provider to the insurance industry, Silanis was awarded the 2011 IBM Beacon Award for “Best Insurance Industry Solution.”
