Generic insurance providers aren’t specialized at rating risk specific to tech staffing firms
For Thinkfind Technology, the annual business insurance renewal process was a dreaded, tedious, time-consuming ordeal.
- Their coverage often resulted in higher premiums because the generic insurance providers they worked with were not specialized at rating risk specific to tech staffing firms.
- The process for business insurance renewal required inputting excessive amounts of data, much of which didn’t apply to their specific business needs.
- Policies, while adequate, didn’t address the business nuances of a tech staffing firm, so additional costs were incurred due to the lack of specialization in the coverage.
Being an active TechServe Alliance member, an association that focuses only on the technology staffing industry, they considered the TechServe Alliance Business Insurance Program as an option and requested a quote.
“It was clearly a different insurance renewal process when we began working with Don and his team. With their tech staffing experience, we can maintain critical policies with no headaches: we get cost-effective coverage in a timely way from a super-responsive team that understands our business. While I like to avail myself of the personalized customer service, it’s good to know that there is also technology available to us through the online portal system that allows for access to information, like COIs, that we might need in real-time. It’s a value-add to an already great service.”
