Distribution Modernization “Jazzed” attendees at SILA 2013 in New Orleans


The VUE Software team got “jazzed for the future” at the SILA’s 24th Annual Educational Conference at the Marriot Hotel in New Orleans on September 22nd to the 25th. The conference featured many industry professionals that conducted sessions providing priceless information. SILA ‘13 sessions offered a wide range of topics, from producer licensing basics to agency-carrier communications best practices. Among the topics that had the most interest were: how to maintain compliance when paying commissions for different types of products including annuities, misconceptions and taboos related to meeting federal and state requirements by using background checks, and how the insurance industry can incorporate social media into their business model.

The SILA 2013 topics are perfectly aligned with VUE Software’s Distribution Modernization initiative. Modernizing core systems by shifting from manual processes and spreadsheets to smart and cost-efficient solutions, can help companies provide better producer satisfaction while saving money, time, and resources. Distribution Modernization is designed to streamline the licensing, compliance, onboarding, appointment, commission management processes, and ultimately increase company revenue.

Change management expert and motivational speaker Mr. Jonathan Edison shared insightful secrets on how to adapt to change without losing sight of your vision and goals or compromising your integrity. In addition, the SILA conference featured several roundtable sessions with state regulators from the Northeast and Midwest regions where attendees got a chance to get answers to state-specific questions.

Again, this year VUE Software submitted a two-minute video for the customary vendor commercial competition, which was well received. Congratulations to the National insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) who took the first place as the winner of the “People’s Choice Award” for the 2013 video competition.

The 24th SILA Conference was a great place to network and see some familiar faces, as well as a chance to learn more about the current trends in insurance licensing. We want to congratulate the 2013 SILA Board of Directors, especially Diana Capes, Executive Vice President, for an outstanding execution of such an important event. We look forward to attending next year for the SILA Educational Conference’s 25th Silver Anniversary at Disneyland!
