ACORD and BlueLine Associates Partner to Align Global Standards to Business Processes

Cary, NC., November 3, 2015 – BlueLine Associates, a leading Business Process Management services provider, announced that they will be partnering with the insurance industry’s global standards and services association, ACORD, on an industry initiative focused on aligning global standards to business processes.

The initiative will result in aligning the messages to a business driven process across lines of business and geographies to provide members with:

  • A holistic, more meaningful view of business processes and the alignment to ACORD message
  • A baseline from which to measure, monitor & improve operational efficiency and data quality
  • A platform that moves the industry towards greater interoperability, reduced costs and better service to the client
  • The ability to focus on what’s most important to their business (profitable underwriting, capital management, customer service, etc.), rather than what’s simply operationally necessary
  • Training and certification in industry processes/Best Practices and Standards

“We are very excited to be ACORD’s partner in this process initiative. ACORD is a first-rate organization and our goal is to help create more value for their 5,000+ members and participants across the globe,” says Jenna Richardson, Senior Vice President for BlueLine Associates.

“ACORD understands the adoption and implementation challenges facing our member community,” said Peter Teresi, ACORD’s Vice President of Standards and Technology. “We are confident of the value that our standards provide to the community and industry, as a whole. This initiative seeks to define a much more holistic approach to delivery, certification and implementation of standards, regardless of geographic region or line of business, with the goal of driving operational efficiency and greater interoperability for our members.”

BlueLine brings to the project extensive long-term experience successfully transforming business processes for Fortune 100 organizations. BlueLine, recently ranked by Consulting Magazine as "Seven Small Jewels: Seven to Watch," has consultants with over 50 years of combined experience across the insurance industry.
