Customer experience is a driving force in today’s insurance restoration industry, and how to best deliver exceptional property claims experiences remains an important focus for insurers. Carriers must continually evaluate their services and ask themselves, “Why will policyholders choose us when so many other options are available?” How will you assure your policyholders you are their best choice?
The answer is easier said than done: You must strive to consistently exceed expectations. As many of the nation’s top carriers have discovered, providing policyholders with a proven contractor managed repair network is key to increased customer satisfaction and policyholder retention.
The days of simply providing policyholders with a claims check for their damages are over. Policyholders today have expressed a need for help in identifying who will repair their property. Delivering access to a proven contractor-managed repair network helps them restore their lives and improves an already difficult experience.
Many property owners do not know where to turn for repairs, and leaving them to find a reputable, qualified contractor on their own can lead to a poor, incomplete customer experience. It can also increase the claims cost if the contractor they choose demands a higher cost than the claims settlement the carrier provides. Leveraging a well-administered contractor-managed repair program can ensure the repairs are completed for the claim amount and can relieve a lot of stress and worry for your valued policyholder in their time of need.
