Frequently Asked Questions
Why do insurance/financial advisors need BlueMind?
Lost time. Wasted energy. Missed opportunities. Those are problems for the majority of insurance/financial advisors, especially solo practitioners. Most are using multiple tools to manage their business. Often the tools are outdated. The focus is not on clients. Nor do many tools do a comprehensive job at helping manage a practice.
BlueMind is an all-in-one digital platform that includes:
- Relationship Management
- Automated Reminders
- Task Prioritization
- Notes & Correspondence
- Prospect Management
- Revenue Optimization
Think of BlueMind as a digital assistant. It helps advisors focus on being an advisor because it keeps all data — from contacts and correspondence to policy details and quotes — secure, well organized, and easily searchable.
Other reasons insurance advisors need BlueMind:
- Younger clients are looking for a digital connection. They want new progressive ways to communicate and buy insurance products. BlueMind is at the cutting edge.
- Competition is intense. BlueMind is a way to professionalize and differentiate without a steep learning curve.
- Too much administrative work limits growth for solo practitioners. BlueMind reclaims many of those hours, freeing you to nurture relationships and scale your practice.
Is BlueMind only for insurance/financial advisors who are relatively new to the field?
No. BlueMind is for all advisors, even those who
qualify for the Million Dollar Round Table.
It helps new advisors build a strong practice faster.
For experienced advisors, it helps them optimize the value of their established book of business and
organize for succession planning.

The portal will also enable your clients to book consultations, which is convenient for them and time-saving for you.

Sales Related Questions
How is BlueMind different from CRM software?
The problem with most CRM applications is that they are generalized for all users. So to customize them for advisors can take time, money, and usually entails working with a tech developer.
In the end, CRM can still feel like a half-baked
BlueMind has been designed from the ground up for insurance/financial advisors. It works as soon as you upload your data. Uncomplicated yet powerful, it is laser-focused on saving administrative time, meeting compliance regulations, selling insurance and investments to clients by offering a better experience, and protecting lifetime income.
How is BlueMind different from similar products on the market?
BlueMind consistently gets high marks for ease of use and because it requires very little training.
There’s no need to spend time and money configuring the software. It’s ready to use. It is the only software of its kind (that we know of) built for insurance/financial advisors by an insurance/financial advisor to address the “pain points” of solo practice.
We believe that BlueMind is in league of its own.
How much time will it take to learn the system and adapt my processes?
Because BlueMind has been repeatedly simplified over many months of development, it should only take a few hours of practice to understand the key functions of the software. You already know the “advisor’s journey” and the client buying process. BlueMind has been mapped to those. Compliance is built in with a pre-determined checklist.
BlueMind’s many tools and resources will feel familiar in no time.
How can BlueMind help me sell more and capture cross-sell opportunities?
When advisors use multiple tools, information is scattered and difficult to interpret. BlueMind unifies your data and reveals opportunities with existing and potential clients. It also takes care of vital business-building tasks like sending birthday greetings, setting up meetings, and prioritizing your day.
BlueMind will help you:
- Build scalable outreach engagement programs with many more contacts than you could previously handle.
- Send personalized digital communications at key moments in the customer life-cycle.
- Focus on prospects based on key buying
- Dramatically improve the health of your
Data & Security Related Questions
My data is stored on multiple systems. How do I get it into BlueMind?
Like most tech tools that involve data imports and exports, BlueMind accepts CSV (spreadsheet) files that include contacts and policy details. The process is straightforward. We will provide onboarding support if needed.
What about data security and privacy?
All documents shared through BlueMind are encrypted and sent via the cloud.
BlueMind meets the following standards:
- Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre (FINTRAC)
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPAA)
- California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
- California Privacy Protection Agency (CPRA)
- Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA)
Regarding privacy, one of the unique features of BlueMind is that advisors are able to segregate the stored notes regarding each company policy or investments. So if one company wants to audit the client file, only the documents and files related to that company are made available. That’s good for the advisor and the client.
Features Specific Questions
How does BlueMind handle Reason-Why letters for Canadian advisors?
BlueMind automatically generates a Reason-Why letter after the FNA recommendation when the policy is completed. Copies are sent to the advisor and the client.
This solves a big problem in the industry. A recent study showed that only 40% of Canadian advisors produce a Reasons-Why letter, despite it being a regulatory requirement. The letters take time and effort and can easily be forgotten. Through automation, BlueMind saves that time and effort and prevents failure to comply.
How can BlueMind help with compliance and audits?
BlueMind was designed to “map” the advisor and client compliance journey. Files needed for an audit can be easily exported if required. All significant material facts and essential conversations between the advisor and client are captured. The advisor is able to share the client's notes immediately after the meeting. A built-in compliance checklist helps ensure that all regulatory requirements have been met.
What applications can be integrated with BlueMind?
Google and Outlook calendar and email integrations are easy to set up. Google Contacts is integrated through an API. We will offer more integrations based on requests and the needs of our customers.
How often do you release updates and new features?
We continuously improve BlueMind based on customer feedback and new technology emerging in the market. Updates normally happen every quarter. A major update can be expected annually.
Can BlueMind help me do a client needs analysis?
Yes. A user-friendly, easy-to-understand needs-analysis tool is foundational to BlueMind. It creates simplified, easy-to-understand reports for sharing with clients that are dated and time-stamped and filed in every client’s digital folder, the ideal “audit trail.”
