AEGIS selects Risk Solved, a market-leading risk management platform, to enhance service to its policyholders

Today, AEGIS Insurance Services Inc (AEGIS),  a leading mutual insurance company that serves the energy industry, announced its selection of the Risk Solved digital risk management platform with the strategic aim of enhancing the Loss Control consultancy services it offers its policyholders.

Commenting on the selection, Tim Heinze, SVP and Chief Loss Control Officer at AEGIS, said “Our policyholders represent virtually the entire energy infrastructure in North America, including all the major electric, natural gas and water utilities. Their services are critical, and we offer them very specialized loss control services, which differentiates us from commercial insurers. Our new platform from Risk Solved will help us deliver unique data insights to our policyholders in real time via our policyholder portal.  This will enhance the technical support we offer, as well as deliver key benchmarking metrics.

Scott Schenker, SVP and CIO at AEGIS, said “We launched a digital transformation program in 2019 and one of the key objectives was to find a platform to digitize the work of our Loss Control division.  We undertook a rigorous selection process and selected Risk Solved because it’s a complete and robust solution. Risk Solved met and exceeded all of our key metrics: a web-based platform, proven technology, easy to use, configurable and mobile-ready so that our team and our policyholders can choose the device that suits them best, whether that’s desktop, tablet or phone.

Right out of the box, we have the ability to configure our own survey questionnaires, create rating and scoring, and deliver analytics to our policyholders and underwriters, which frees us from depending on development resources that are already stretched thin.”

Debbie Baker, Global Sales and Marketing Director of Risk Solved, adds “AEGIS selecting the Risk Solved platform as its solution for Loss Control across North America further endorses our market-leading and global positioning.

AEGIS’s enthusiasm for delivering superior Loss Control services to its policyholders is palpable. We are fortunate that the global pandemic hasn’t impacted the project momentum. While challenging, the team at AEGIS is using this time as an opportunity to accelerate change and address some long-standing opportunities.  At the same time, Risk Solved’s project team has been able to meet any logistical challenges presented by the pandemic and continue to deliver against each milestone and objective.
