WESTBROOK, CT--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2013) -  O'Brien Communications Group (OCG) has been selected by Brovada of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to position and promote its brand in the U.S. market. A provider of connectivity to insurance carriers, brokers, MGAs, and retail agents, Brovada's software helps all parties to insurance transactions interact more quickly, efficiently, and effectively.

"Since we only work with companies in which we believe implicitly, being selected by Brovada makes us especially proud," said Mark O'Brien, founder and Principal of OCG. "The principled integrity of the Brovada team -- combined with their commitment to improve the industry they serve -- made them an attractive prospect. Because of that, we're pleased they've become a client."

Brovada offers complete, round-trip connectivity for carriers, brokers/MGAs, and retail agents, providing an integrated environment that includes everything for agencies from inquiry to new-business processing, from ratings and rules engines to endorsement processing and management system integration -- and everything for carriers from inquiries to new-business submissions and policy changes. Brovada enables more work to be done with fewer screens, lets agents work in their own systems without having to re-key data, and accommodates policy changes and endorsements.
