SmartCompliance Integrates with
EZ CERT Management
The Automated Solution for Franchises to Track Certificates of Insurance
College Station/Bryan, Texas – April 6, 2021
SmartCompliance, the powerful software that streamlines the compliance management process, announces its integration with EZ CERT Management, one of the biggest companies that specializes in insurance management for Franchises.
This innovative platform will centralize and speed up the process of tracking Certificates of Insurance to ensure Franchisees’ end-to-end compliance.
By using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, the platform avoids manual data entry and creates a searchable database organized according to different requirement groups. The software tracks Certificate of Insurance, Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD), and Insurance Policy’s detecting non-compliance status to send an automated notification to the involved parties.
Tropical Smoothie Cafe, a nationwide cafe chain with more than 920 franchises, is the first brand that decided to optimize its process of collecting, tracking, and monitoring compliance status using SmartCompliance software.
“We are providing Tropical Smoothie Cafe a cutting-edge technology that will dramatically improve their ability to collect and track Certificates of Insurance in a business where staying compliant is fundamental for maintaining safe and secure operations. We accepted the challenge of eliminating the burden, cost, and time-consuming effort that the Vendor Process brings to companies and developed an automated solution that increases efficiency and secures Compliance,” explain James Benham, CEO of SmartCompliance.
“We combined SmartCompliance technology with the expertise of EZ Cert Management in monitoring franchises’ insurance certificates to develop a software that uses Optical Character Recognition and leading-edge technology to ensure compliance. Imagine having an elite team of auditors always on alert to track and monitor franchisees’ compliance status. In one cloud-based platform, we streamline all the stages of the management process.”
James Benham, Co-founder, CEO at Smart Compliance.
“The franchise business model requires the management of numerous Certificates of Insurance (COIs) and that all the Franchisees have Insurance Coverage. After working with multiple clients, we saw the need for an up-to-date insight to manage Insurance Compliance data in a more efficient way. This is why we decided to integrate with SmartCompliance. We have been working together for several years and they have never disappointed us. For this challenge, we wanted to facilitate the search for information and compliance tracking to ease the task of reviewing Insurance Compliance while our clients work in the field. With this centralized and cloud-based software, we are re-writing history for the Franchise Industry.”
