Wawanesa selected the TechCanary platform after an extensive proof of concept (POC) sufficient to demonstrate the system’s ability to scale, its breadth and depth of functionality, and its configurability to support the company’s needs.

“The smart application of the latest technologies, with an eye on emerging technologies, is critical to establishing and maintaining the most efficient operation that simultaneously provides an outstanding user experience, whether the user is an employee, a Broker, or a policyholder,” comments Graham Haigh, VP, Business Development, Wawanesa. “After considering all of the available options, TechCanary’s system with Salesforce was clearly the best choice for this pilot project.”

Extremely Knowledgeable and Responsive Team

“The TechCanary team was extremely responsive and knowledgeable throughout our early evaluation and the subsequent proof of concept,” Haigh adds. “Getting to know the quality of the team made us even more comfortable with our decision.”

Wawanesa’s selection of TechCanary gives the company an even stronger foothold in the Canadian insurance market, especially among carriers, according to Reid Holzworth, TechCanary co-founder and CEO. “We welcome Wawanesa to the growing TechCanary family of users and appreciate their confidence in both our platform and our people,” he comments.
