Administrative Strategies is dedicated to delivering on their promise to quickly and accurately put people’s lives back in order after a loss. However, traditional system processes, distance, site access, and resources can make this promise challenging. Administrative Strategies selected the Encircle platform to digitally gather information and streamline workflows resulting in a significant gain in efficiency and customer satisfaction.“Encircle Link helps us deliver on our promise to get our customers on the road to recovery within hours and not days,” explained James Gardner, Field Claims Manager and Adjuster, Administrative Strategies, LLC. “We can now confirm flooding at first contact, get the Advance and Preliminary Report started before an inspection even occurs, and submit it before the adjuster leaves the property! This gain in efficiency has allowed us to improve the customer experience and to deliver on our promise.”Without downloading an app, the insured can provide photos, details of the loss, and signatures from their smartphone or tablet using Encircle Link. The time from initial contact to payment request drops from 10.8 days to just 0.2 days when using Encircle Link; making the process 54 times faster than their traditional process.

Over Four Million Brits Consider Fraudulent Home Insurance Claims

Chester, England, (PRNewswire) Britain’s number one comparison site found 4.3 million people with home insurance, (11 per cent), are willing to consider making a false claim on their home insurance. Of these people, four per cent (or 1.5 million) admit they’d consider making a false claim – or had already done so – regardless of the economic climate. Worryingly, almost 780,000 people have already defrauded their home insurer by successfully making a false insurance claim in the last five years.Peter Harrison, insurance expert at MoneySupermarket, said: “It’s extremely concerning to discover so many people are contemplating making a false or exaggerated claim on their home insurance. With recent news the UK has slipped into a double-dip recession, household finances will undoubtedly be stretched, but no matter how tempting, fabricating a claim for a payout is illegal, and you could face being prosecuted as a result.”
Insurance companies take fraud very seriously, no matter how big or small the amount being claimed for. If insurers are suspicious of a claim’s validity it will be investigated with specialist detection processes and anti-fraud technology. Anyone caught and found guilty of insurance fraud would find it extremely difficult to get insurance cover in the future. Previous convictions for insurance fraud must be disclosed on application forms for any type of insurance. Insurance premiums will be much more expensive for someone guilty of making a false claim, and in some cases insurers may not be willing to offer cover at all.
When it comes to fraudulent home insurance claims, there is a North-South divide with people in the North East (15 per cent) and North West (14 per cent) most likely to make a false claim. However, residents in the South East were the least likely to make a claim, with only eight per cent stating they’d be prepared to do so.
In addition, males are more likely to make a fraudulent claim (14 per cent) compared to females (eight per cent). Those under the age of 35 are more likely to act dishonestly, with 21 per cent making, or likely to make, a false claim compared to just 10 per cent of over 45’s.
