Marsh Canada, VerX team up to create national licence monitoring service
TORONTO, Ont. — Marsh Canada Limited and VerX Direct Corporation have teamed up to create a national driver’s licence and class verification system.
Through VerX, Marsh Canada clients can obtain direct, real-time access to most provincial and territorial driver’s licence databases (except Newfoundland and Labrador), and determine, within a few seconds, whether a licence is valid, suspended, requires a driver interlock device, or is fraudulent. For the commercial trucking industry, the system can also verify the class of licence.
“Drivers with invalid licences represent a significant risk, not only to other drivers on the road but also to the organizations that employ them,” said Greg St. Croix, national transportation risk focus leader for Marsh Canada. “With VerX, we are able to offer organizations an easy and inexpensive way to check driver license status and class, helping them to reduce accident and impoundment rates, mitigate various liability risk issues, and ultimately improve their bottom lines.”
“Several types of users of the VerX system, including car and truck rental organizations, fleet operators and insurance companies, have found it to be a simple, fast, inexpensive, and proven way to mitigate several risks associated with drivers,” said George Sutej, founder and CEO of VerX.
