To facilitate producer/carrier communications, MajescoMastek, the New York-based U.S. subsidiary of global technology solutions provider Mastek Limited, introduced the Elixir Distribution Management Producer Self-Service Portal (EDM Producer Portal), an extension and enhancement to the vendor's Elixir Distribution Management (EDM) offering. As with other MajescoMastek solutions, EDM, including the EDM Producer Portal, is a web-based offering, enabling it to be delivered through traditional software licensing or via a private cloud option.
EDM, with the new Producer Portal, is available for immediate delivery and for use as a standalone solution, with MajescoMastek's Elixir North America Policy Administration System, or with the STG Suite of products. EDM and the Producer Portal can be used by both P&C and life/annuity insurers to increase distribution channel productivity and enhance the relationship between producers and the carriers they represent, according to the vendor.
The Producer Portal is designed to allow producers to communicate with carriers on all aspects of their business, and provides Internet connectivity from any location and via any device, including mobile. Features of the EDM Producer Portal include:
"As mobile devices become more prevalent and a new generation of producer joins the workforce, the demand for carriers to deliver anywhere, anytime information and functionality is only going to increase," commented Erik Stockwell, MajescoMastek's senior vice president, in a press release.
