[Newsletter] - APEXA July 2014

Jul 31, 2014 3:00:00 PM / by Richard Sachs

Apexa_Full_Colour_High_res_scaled275pxThis is the fourth in our monthly series of communications where we update you on the progress of our Industry Solution, APEXA, and we are excited to share all of what this past month has had in store. At the forefront of all that we do is our team’s belief in our industry-supported solution, APEXA. While there may be other industry services that seem similar in nature, what sets us apart is not only the transparent nature of our culture but the fact that we are an industry-led solution, working closely with our nation’s stakeholders including Canada's Provincial regulators. 

July has proven to be an even busier and exciting month than we had expected, and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have shown interest in our initiative. We are equally thankful to our existing partners for their continued support as well as to our new partners BMO Life Assurance and SSQ Financial. This is the perfect moment to publicly thank them and welcome them aboard; merci et bienvenue! 

Among these milestones, July also brought with it the all too familiar internal project meetings. Follow-ups were had with our Project Leadership Steering Committee, where the APEXA branding was finalized, including the logo and tagline, and we are very pleased with the outcome. As you may know, the name APEXA is derived from the word “apex” – the highest point, and we are confident that our branding (which we are excited to unveil in the coming months) will denote this notion of “industry strength”. 

Finally, at month’s end, we launched APEXA’s MGA Workshops, which aim to invite all contacts to an information webinar session introducing them to APEXA. If you would like any additional information, we invite you to visit our Resources Page.

Below are listed a few of our key milestones that we are pleased to share. Feel free to forward this Newsletter to others in your organization so they too can get excited about our vision.
