Zywave Enhances BrokerageBuilder Email Encryption With RPost
MILWAUKEE, WI (CRANBERRY) September 5, 2012 - Today, Zywave, Inc. announced a partnership with vendor RPost for encrypting requests for proposal (RFPs) sent via email through BrokerageBuilder, its industry-leading agency management system.
The switch to RPost represents a significant enhancement in functionality, with a number of benefits for both insurance agency users of BrokerageBuilder and carrier contact recipients of RFPs.
— RPost can be used to deliver documents electronically in compliance with HIPAA standards relating to the security of electronic personal health information (PHI).
— RPost offers an extremely simple, user-friendly process for accessing encrypted emails that fits into normal workflows. Carrier contacts will not have to register or remember login credentials--yet the RFP remains securely protected with a password that is sent directly to the recipient’s email inbox for easy access. Plus, there are no special browser or system requirements--only an up-to-date PDF viewer is needed.
— Account managers can prove email delivery and content with a legally verifiable Registered Receipt for each encrypted RFP email they send.
— RPost also allows recipients to easily send secure replies back to the original sender of the email, for ultimate security partnered with ease of use.
“The RFP process is a vital component of an insurance account manager’s daily job, and we want to ensure BrokerageBuilder remains the tool of choice for supporting this essential need,” said Krista Seidl, Zywave product director of management systems. “In evaluating different encryption options, our goal was to make the process as efficient as possible without sacrificing security. We found exactly that with RPost and we’re confident that both our clients and their carrier contacts will appreciate this enhancement.”
“We use RPost in our own agency and Zywave just can’t put it into BrokerageBuilder fast enough for us!” said Ruthanne Trubich of The Horton Group, a Zywave customer. “It is one of the easiest encryption services I’ve viewed, and we work with many on a daily basis through various carriers.”
