FACC Solutions

Pre-Loss Services

We understand that the client has requested background on FACC’s experience quantifying insurance values/limits/deductibles. FACC can assist in developing a pre-loss plan that includes the calculation of Property Values, Business Interruption Values and Contingent Business Interruption Values.

Accurately measuring and presenting insured values is a critical part of pre-loss planning and improves not only the post-loss process but will also assist in making the renewal process more manageable. Accurate values can be critical to making informed decisions pertaining to the appropriate levels of coverage required and in identifying where a company should apply its resources in disaster recovery and business continuity planning.

FACC can assist with pre-event planning that will:

  • Expedite the loss measurement process.
  • Allow for significant and immediate support post loss.
  • Allow the client to focus on core business and resuming operations after an event.
  • Establish procedures to best deal with suppliers/customers affected by the event.
  • Establish processes and procedures to track data that is required after an event, including set-up of temporary general ledger accounts to track all loss related costs.
  • Establish a claims team and put agreements in place, eliminating the post loss hiring and vetting process as well as limiting learning curves.
  • Develop a post loss claim management plan to ensure preliminary information required is easily accessible and provided in a consistent format.
  • Allow the client and FACC to respond immediately once a loss occurs.
