Okemos, Mich. - Minnesota Department of Commerce has implemented Sircon for States, a Web-based solution from Sircon Corp., making Minnesota the 14th state to adopt the online compliance technology for producer licensing and appointment.The conversion from a legacy system to a hosted solution is aimed at increasing the online services Minnesota provides to insurance carriers, agencies and producers across the country, enabling customers to connect with the Minnesota Department of Commerce 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"In Minnesota, we serve over 85,000 active agents and over 7,600 active agencies," says Commissioner Glenn Wilson. "When you're handling that kind of volume on paper, it not only produces additional work for state employees, but creates a significant lag-time between the time an agent applies for a license and when that process is complete and they can begin working. In our first three weeks of operation, 950 new license applications were approved and licenses were printed immediately."
