Best’s Review Recognizes Safelite® Solutions for Successful Innovation in Claims Management
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Jan. 8, 2013 - Safelite® Solutions, a leading P+C claims management provider, has been recognized in the Innovation Showcase, published in the January 2013 edition of Best’s Review magazine for instituting pre-inspections for auto glass claims in order to reduce the increasing number of fraudulent claims. The initiative saves the insurance industry an estimated $15 million in reduced questionable claim activity annually.
The Innovation Showcase is a forum for recognizing forward thinking among insurance organizations. A panel of insurance industry experts assessed the relative merits of the submissions.
In reviewing the submission, Stephen Applebaum, Senior Analyst, Property Casualty Insurance, Aite Group, said, “What is particularly notable here is that as a market share leader in insurance glass claims management, Safelite® Solutions intentionally introduced a solution that they knew would negatively impact short-term revenue but in doing so has created invaluable long-term good will with clients and non-clients alike—demonstrating counterintuitive innovation at its best.”
