BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Blockchain-based insurance certificate service launched

Blockchain-based insurance certificate service launched

Patra Corp. has launched a cloud-based insurance certificate delivery and storage system that uses blockchain technology to secure the documents, the El Dorado Hills, California-based technology company said Tuesday.

CertVault, which is aimed at brokers but can be used by any company that needs to generate a certificate, uses blockchain to prevent certificates from being altered once they are entered into the system, Patra said in a statement.

Once an insurance certificate is entered into the system, recognition technology will be used to identify key data, the statement said. Parties designated to have access to the certificate will be notified and provided with a unique access code to download the document, Patra said.

CertVault will use a database of certificate holders and brokers and the service is priced on a per upload basis, Patra said.
