Martin & Company is proud to announce the launch of CompliPoint, a new dynamic online compliance database developed in partnership with the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (“NAMIC”).

After seeing the capabilities of other Martin & Company web applications Status Report ADVISOR (“SRA”) and Bureau Monitoring ADVISOR (“BMA”), NAMIC reached out for consultation on how to build a similarly structured database for the information captured in their “50-State Survey” PDF documents. NAMIC recognized how critical compliance is, especially for insurance companies writing in multiple states, and wanted to provide their members with a straightforward yet robust solution.

CompliPoint, the result of this partnership, allows NAMIC members to search, filter and navigate through compliance information on over 60 topics. Information is summarized in unique fields specific to each topic and links to state sites for the full text of the citations and/or bulletins. Users are able to search on exactly which states, categories and topics they are most interested in and create customized filter presets that produce Excel and PDF exports.

“Through our partnership with Martin & Company, CompliPoint has proved invaluable in meeting our member’s compliance needs,” says Sarah Schnettler, Project Manager at NAMIC. “Both Martin & Company and NAMIC pride themselves on providing the highest level of service to their clients, so this partnership was a natural fit,” adds Sonja A. Rodebaugh, Vice President and Director of Compliance & State Filings for Martin & Company. “We are excited to join a long line of impressive informational resources that NAMIC offers to their members.”

The launch of CompliPoint is just the beginning as Martin & Company plans to provide updated compliance and regulatory information on existing topics, new insurance related industry topics and additional features such as customized e-mail alerts.
