Are you Taking Advantage of Value-Added Services from your Insurance Carrier?

First in a series on how HUB clients can leverage value-added services from their insurance carrier.

Let's face it - insurance isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words "cutting-edge technology."   But many of the leading insurance carriers represented by HUB International are changing that.

More and more insurers and technology companies are developing online tools and applications that enable companies to better manage risk and insurance.  Many of these tools are available to clients at no additional charge.

Following are examples of the value-added resources offered to HUB clients who are insured by Zurich:   

Virtual Consulting

This proprietary, web-based risk management tool provides data-driven insights into loss exposures such as electrical fire, vandalism and product liability.  Virtual Consulting offers specific loss-control best practices and resources to help you control and reduce these exposures to specific risks.

Business Interruption Coverage Calculator

The BI Coverage Calculator was built to reduce the guesswork and variability involved in evaluating business interruption exposures and calculating coverage needs.

Multinational Insurance Application (MIA)

What if you have to insure a location in a country most people have never heard of before?  No problem!  You can get help with your questions when you access Zurich MIA, a database that tracks insurance regulatory and premium tax information for over 180 countries.
