Mary LaPorte quoted in “The Demotech Difference” article, Summer 2018

The summer 2018 issue of “The Demotech Difference” carries and article titled “Paperless versus Less Paper – Can the Two Coexist”.  The article focuses on the ongoing struggle in the insurance industry to move toward a paperless environment.  In preparing this article, authors Mark and Karen Harris interviewed Mary LaPorte, asking her to comment on this transition as seen from her viewpoint as an operations consultant with agencies and brokerages.   LaPorte points out that when moving to a paperless environment, the agency must first be assured that their digital records are complete and accessible.  All “email, policy documents and underwriting documents must be attached to the customer record in the agency management or document management system.”  The article was written by Mark Harries, CIC, CEO and President of Quadrant Insurance Managers and Karen Harris, MLIS, VP – Director of Corporate Marketing at Quadrant Insurance Managers.
