How Argo Risk Tech, a custom app, can help reduce customer and employee accidents – and limit the resulting losses
Argo’s real-time accident logging and inspection app, Argo Risk Tech, will be on display at the company’s RIMS booth.
Instead of waiting to respond to claims when they arise, clients who use the Argo Risk Tech app have instead taken the proactive path. They know that using handheld devices to log inspections and report issues – all in real time – reduces the risk of slip-and-fall accidents and other incidents. And of course, preventing accidents saves money.
Rooney Gleason, president of Argo Insurance – U.S. Grocery and Retail, will be at Argo’s Booth 1849 to demonstrate the Argo Risk Tech app features.
One feature sure to attract a lot of attention is the first notice of loss function. If a customer were to have an accident on the premises, employees can go to the app on their device, touch “incident report,” and type in the customer’s name, address and contact information. Employees can even use the app to take photos.
The first notice of loss functionality also expedites the filing of workers’ compensation paperwork by generating the required state filing form and completing it.
Reporting incidents within three business days is key to reducing costs, Gleason noted.
Visitors to the booth will be able to check out Argo Risk Tech’s handheld app and online dashboard.
“Our whole approach to technology drives the experience as opposed to the premium or coverage form,” Gleason said. “This is a big change in how we approach prompting behavior that is going to result in a better ROI and a reduction in the total cost of risk.”
