Press Release: Surex Serves Notice With Three National Award Nominations
Magrath, AB – Surex will once again be in attendance at the Insurance Business Awards as a finalist for a trio of awards: Best Brokerage Over 10 People, Insurance Industry Employer of Choice and The KEAL Technology Award for Digital Innovation.
The second annual Insurance Business Awards, which recognizes and honours achievements and contributions in the insurance industry, will take place at the Liberty Grand in Toronto, Ontario on November 30th, 2017.
‘’We’re honoured to be a finalist for these three awards,’’ Matthew Alston, COO of Surex, said. ‘’They all go hand-in-hand; the calibre of colleagues we have, and the emphasis we place on developing new technology, are at the core of what makes our brokerage one of the best – if not the best – brokerage in Canada.’’
Since inception in 2012, Surex has grown to boast a book of business of over $45 million in annual insurance premiums. Having entered Canada’s largest market, Ontario, earlier in the year, Surex now offers insurance in six provinces and two territories.
‘’We’re proud to be recognized with these nominations but let’s not forget who benefits the most from our tremendous employees and our industry-leading technology,’’ Lance Miller, CEO of Surex, said. ‘’The customer is always #1 for us. As a 100% Canadian company, our goal has always been to provide Canadians with the best customer proposition, rates and service in the country.’’
Surex’s customer proposition allows customers to get up to 10 online auto, home or condo/tenant quotes in 5-10 minutes. The 100% transparent pricing model allows customers to see which companies are offering what price for their business. From there, the customer’s personal broker will contact them to verify their quote and make sure they’re getting all the discounts available to them. Customers then sign for their documents online, through e-signature, and will have instant access to proof of insurance.
Along with the above nominations, Surex placed 5th on the 2017 Top 10 Brokerages in Canada list, by Insurance Business, earlier in the year. In 2016, Surex placed 30th on the Startup 50 Canada list, by Canadian Business & PROFIT.
