EDGE Underwriting Manual Web-Compliant for Tablet Computing

Munich Re Canada (Life) today announced its EDGE underwriting manuals are fully web-compliant for tablet-based computers, including the Apple iPad®, Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire. All features, such as calculators, medical images and reference articles found in the EDGE Life, CI and DI underwriting manuals can be accessed and viewed on most tablet computers running Apple, Android and Windows operating systems.

“Delivering our EDGE underwriting manuals on tablet-based computers creates greater opportunity for field underwriters who require easy access to underwriting data to make quick decisions,” says Joan Tolan, Vice President, Underwriting, North America (Life), Munich Re. “We made certain that no special software or application is required for our current users to access EDGE.”

Critical calculators, including mature age, coronary artery disease and cholesterol retain their functionality and all publications in the Reference Library are available on tablet-based computers.

“Underwriting manuals have moved from spreadsheets to computers and from the office to the field,” says Marylou Dunn, Assistant Vice President and Chief Underwriter, Munich Re Canada (Life). “We want our clients to have access to EDGE at any time and in any situation to help them make informed and accurate underwriting decisions.”
