Credit Union Fintech: FilingMate
FilingMate is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for insurance companies to find, manage, complete, and submit regulatory filings.
Insurance carriers, agents, and producers deal with mountains of regulations. As a result, they have quite the burden as far as paperwork is concerned. That could include:
- Licensing of an agent or agency
- Incorporation for setting up new agencies
- Related filings for state insurance or other regulatory bodies
For credit unions who provide insurance, this kind of regulatory management software represents the end to several headaches.
FilingMate removes a lot of the tedious, manual input required in filling out multiple regulatory documents. Automating portions of the process with auto-form population takes out a lot of guesswork and the risk of human error.
Finally, FilingMate helps with review and submittal. Users can rest easier knowing who did what and when. Plus, using e-signatures ensures that documents that must be approved across several departments don’t get caught up while waiting for signatures.
Top 3 Problems solved:
- Simplifies the regulatory process
- Determines which forms are required for each regulator
- Auto Fills forms based on prior information
