NEW YORK, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Rhoads Online Institute(TM) (ROi), marketer of the Professional Compliance & Requirements Management (PCRM(TM)) system for the insurance industry, today announced Great West Casualty Company ( has chosen to use the version of its licensing and appointments service designed specifically for insurance companies, PCRM Carrier(TM).

"As one of the largest insurance companies serving the trucking industry, Great West is driven to provide second-to-none service to everyone we deal with," said Great West's Vice President of Regulatory Operations and Compliance. "Since that service focus extends to the brokers and agents representing our lines, making use of a system that handles compliance matters, particularly appointments, with ease, speed and certainty is a necessity."

Great West felt it could not afford a licensing and appointment system that promised more than it performed so under the direction of their Underwriting Support Services supervisor, the company sought a system that, in her words, "worked as well to serve the customer as we do."

After an evaluation process, Great West, a unit of Old Republic International (NYSE: ORI) ( selected ROi's PCRM Carrier. A key factor in its decision was the flexibility of PCRM Carrier, a result of the system's high degree of configurability.

"Managing insurance licenses and appointments is a deceptively important process, one that truly allows insurance companies to function," said Charles D. Edinger, ROi's president. "Great West understands that and can expect to see the positive top- and bottom-line impact that PCRM Carrier, a high-value automated licensing and appointments processing system, can make."

It manages internal compliance workflow, files appointments and terminations, tracks continuing education across all U.S. states and jurisdictions as well as providing secure linkages to carriers' internal IT systems and enterprise-level applications.
