(April 4, 2014 – Toronto, ON/Columbus, OH) Risk Control Technologies Inc., the industry-leading provider of loss control software solutions for insurers, today announced that Grange Insurance (“Grange”) has selected the RC Inspection software solution with the goal of streamlining loss control processes within the organization. A financially strong insurer with more than $2 billion in assets, Grange offers auto, home, life and business insurance protection to policyholders in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin through a network of Independent Agents.
“Enhancing our risk control consulting services is key as we work with our Independent Agents to grow Grange’s middle market business,” said Ray Mazzotta, AVP – Middle Market Leader for Grange, “By implementing the Risk Control Technologies solution, we are aiming to improve our risk control processes so we can dedicate more efforts on providing consultative risk control services that help our agents write larger, profitable accounts with us.”
RC Inspection is a complete end-to-end risk control management system used by leading insurers which will allow Grange to:
- Automate risk control consulting and inspection processes to reduce manual tasks.
- Improve the quality and consistency of inspection reports delivered to key stakeholders.
- Enable more effective loss control recommendation management to drive risk improvement.
- Virtually eliminate paper risk control files.
- Enhance loss control data-mining and reporting.
- Equip their field risk control team with tablet devices to increase productivity on the go.
One of the phases of the implementation of RC Inspection at Grange will involve the deployment of tablet devices to the field risk control staff loaded with the RC Inspection application for field data collection. This will allow the field staff to collect risk data, photos, recommendations and diagrams as well as schedule ongoing service in the field, even in locations without mobile broadband connections. Once data is collected in the field, it is then uploaded into a central database which allows underwriters to utilize the information in making underwriting decisions. This central data repository also offers data mining and reporting capabilities which have traditionally been unavailable in the paper-based loss control environment in which most insurers operate.
“We are pleased to welcome Grange to our growing list of risk control-focused insurer clients” said David Da Costa of Risk Control Technologies, “They are very focused on customer service in all aspects of their business and we believe RC Inspection will help them bolster customer service within the loss control function even further.”
