You provide commercial surety as a service to your existing accounts but typically the penal sums are low and it's expensive to maintain in-house expertise for this specialized business. Every time you issue a surety bond by hand, you lose money.

With FLEX for Surety Bonds™, you can turn your cost center into a profit center. FLEX automates the application and issuance process while maintaining rating and service consistency so you can transact more surety business with a positive return on your investment.

FLEX for Surety Bonds uses standardized, government-issued bond forms and issues continuation, endorsement, and cancellation certificates to manage your bonds throughout their lifecycle. FLEX also provides:

  • Immediate issuance
  • Obligee management
  • Single or multi-year bonds
  • Specimen copies

FLEX currently issues 70% of all carnet bonds and 35% of all lost document bonds sold in Canada. Our clients also use FLEX for Surety Bonds for:
