The Benefits of a Claims Inventory Service
When a commercial client's property in Ogden, UT, is damaged, maintaining an up-to-date insurance claim is vital to serving the client well. One thing that you should look for when seeking preferred vendors is a claims inventory service. This system allows both you and your client to track the progress of the restoration throughout the whole cleanup process and understand the costs involved.
3 Benefits of a Claims Inventory Service
As soon as SERVPRO technicians assess the damage to the building, they update your client's account in the Claims Information Center with key pieces of data:
- Type of damage
- Extent of problem
- Projected cost of repair
This fast response allows you to start processing the claim immediately. Once the adjuster visits the building and corroborates the claim, you have easy access through a simple login to verify that his or her report matches what the damage mitigation experts plan to do.
Sometimes during the remediation process, technicians run into problems that they didn't see before. Secondary damage may also have occurred since the initial report. Whatever the reason for the update to the insurance claim, the CIC allows you and your client to track changes as they are discovered.
With traditional filing methods, the insurance agent assigned to your client's case has to wait for the property owner to receive the final bill from the mitigation company and submit it with his or her claims paperwork. The benefit of claims inventory services is that all this information is already available to the building owner and the insurance company online. There is no more cause for delay in getting the information you need to process the final claim.
With all the technology available to businesses today, it just makes sense to choose a mitigation company that uses claims inventory services as a preferred vendor. Efficient reporting helps you finalize and process an insurance claim with unprecedented ease.
