Canal has offered commercial auto liability, truckers’ general liability, physical damage, and cargo coverages for over 80 years. Historically, Canal utilized the basic payment functionality inherent to the company’s core administration system. The increasing need for more robust digital payment capabilities prompted the search for a technology partner able to provide a full inbound payment solution, according to a One Inc statement.

“We had planned to modernize our payments system as part of our ongoing commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience, and One Inc’s solution had the expansive features and functionality we were looking for,” comments Kevin Brannon, VP and CTO, Canal. “We appreciated their focus on service, knowledge of the insurance payments ecosystem, as well as flexibility to phase in the integrations according to our schedule.”
