SAN DIEGO – Zurich Insurance Group is unveiling a new mobile app this week at the 2016 RIMS Conference and Exhibition which the company reports will enable customers to perform their own on-site risk assessments and use those results to generate practical risk-mitigation actions.
Available for iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as online, Zurich Risk Advisor provides access to the company’s risk-grading methodology, best practices, risk insights and industry benchmarks to help customers improve their risk management efforts, notes a company statement issued Sunday.
Users are guided through a series of questions so they can evaluate key risk factors – such as fire detection, general housekeeping and process controls – at their sites, the Zurich statement reports.
Building upon Zurich’s What If? Risk-Grading app, the app will allow customers to compare their risk quality across various sites and develop what-if scenarios to see how changing the ratings and implementing risk-improvement actions will impact the overall risk, the statement adds.
“In response to customer feedback and needs, we looked at ways to improve the What If? app to create something of even greater value for our customers,” comments Tom Fioretti, chief risk engineering officer for Zurich North America.
