Manitoba Public Insurance is still working on correcting its online issues.
The problem is with the computer systems, company spokesman Brian Smiley confirmed. The service went down sometime earlier this morning. While the server interruption is a headache for those working at MPI, there are reports that some brokers in Winnipeg are unable to process transactions.
Smiley said the server hiccup shouldn’t have an impact on customers.
"In terms of affecting our customers (the disruption) would be minimal," he said this morning. "The brokers should still be able to do what we call a ‘down time’ transaction, meaning they could still complete the transaction but would have to wait to enter it into the system when it’s up and running again."
Just to be safe, customers looking to renew insurance or register a new vehicle today should call their broker before heading down in person.
Technicians are currently working on restoring the computer service. No timetable was given as to when things would be back online.
