Sword Insurance (soon to be AgencyPort Software), a provider of software and services to the insurance and reinsurance industries, has released Turnstile, a standards-based PDF conversion solution for the cloud. Available to insurance carriers, MGAs and insurance technology vendors, the service immediately converts ACORD PDF forms to ACORD XML for point-of-sale, rating or policy administration systems.

Sword says that, for most carriers, a considerable amount of time is spent manually rekeying data found within a PDF email attachment. Turnstile is designed to convert this information automatically, allowing carriers to handle more submissions quicker. Sword says Turnstile will be updated as new ACORD forms and new form editions are published.

Sword says turnstile is a highly secure service for any agent portal and interface that shortens intake time and reduces processing costs. It is hosted by Rackspace Hosting.

Turnstile can be integrated into a carrier’s front-end solution or carriers can work with the Sword Insurance professional services team to complete the integration. The web service can be adapted to either modern or legacy architecture, says Sword. The pay-per-use service is available as a standalone solution or as an add-on for existing AgencyPortal and BookSmart customers. Turnstile requires no software downloads or middleman websites, significantly simplifying the process.
