Access the Actuarial Directory on the go!

By Tim Moberly, SOA Director of Technology Services

Tim Moberly We are pleased to announce that we have launched a new mobile interface to the Online Directory of Actuarial Memberships. You can now access the directory right from your smartphone (Blackberry, iPhone, Android, etc.).

Through this interface you now have access to over 29,000 actuaries on your smartphone.

With it you can:

  • Search the directory by name or company
  • Initiate a phone call right on the screen
  • Generate an email from your smartphone
  • Add an actuary to your phone’s contact list and
  • Generate a map to locate an actuary

To use it, you don’t even need to download an app! You can access the directory on your smartphone simply by going to https://ActuarialDirectory.org

This is just one way we are working to conveniently deliver technology to our members. We will also continue to offer apps for our major meetings (the first one was developed for the recent Health Meeting).

In addition, we also recently announced that the SOA’s e-Learning Management System (LMS) is now compatible with the Apple iPad operating system. And we are working on a mobile version of the SOA website, so watch for that in the future.

We’d also love to hear your feedback on what types of apps would make your life easier. If you have ideas, I invite you to send them my way at tmoberly@soa.org or leave a comment below.
