Vericlaim have been working closely with Alarm (the association for public sector risk managers) to produce a concise best practice guide for how to respond to a major loss. This was inspired by the experiences of many clients during the 2015 Winter floods, who felt that their business continuity plans did not provide concise, practical advice – particularly on insurance aspects.
The guide covers pre-loss planning, stakeholder management and tips on the initial steps to take during the critical first few hours after an event. It has been developed in conjunction with risk managers, reflecting their priorities and concerns following a major loss.
The guide has also formed the basis for the creation of a unique Vericlaim Major Loss App. The App will provide personalised contact information and guidance for clients and ensure that they are always able to access up to date support in dealing with a crisis – particularly out of hours. Following initial testing with risk managers, insurers and brokers, the App will be available from Vericlaim in January 2017.
