It is obvious that some did not have a chance to review the introduction letter that had been previously sent out to the NACHI membership. To outline the program further and to alleviate speculative comments simlar to those previously listed, please read the following.
insurancediscountinspections (IDI) will be launched within the next 45 days. This company specifically designed to facilitate consumer needs regarding Wind Mitigation and Four Point Inspections as required for the insurance industry.
Unlike the mismanaged efforts of the WCE’s associated with the MSFH Program, this service is offering a much more lucrative split between the Inspector Vendor and IDI. In fact, the fee split is 70% to the inspector vs. the $30.00 rate previously posted. Also, the percentage to the Inspector Vendor increases significantly for multiple, commercial and high-rise structures. IDI will incurr all transaction costs, phone operations center and has budgeted 25% of net revenue directly to statewide marketing efforts. In addition, IDI is in the process of creating agent training tools for the insurance and real estate fields. Also in the works, is an “Agent Partner Program” specializing in custom marketing tools to drive the consumer base.
This is not a “pay to play” arrangement nor will we impose rediculous insurance requirements, drug screening or criminal background checks as the WCE’s. I know the NACHI membership is a group of professionals committed to the industry and outragious criteria for participation is not warranted.
As it stands, we have volume driven independent agencies waiting in the wings to utililze the site once live. In addition, authorization letters will be hitting the respective underwriting departments of 15 of the 28 primary carriers within the state. These 15 carriers represent over 70% of all homeowner polilcies in Florida. The remaining companies are scheduled for conference calls and approval status over the next 15 days.
I can assure everyone, this company is determined to launch successfully and impact the Florida market.
As per the comment earlier regarding qualifications, our existing team of Certified Professional Engineers, General Contractors and Residential Contractors are currently performing these inspections throughout the South Florida market.
Our efforts and committment to this project were spawned by continuous comments from the independent insurance industry regarding the need for a one call, reliable provider that can service consumer needs in an accurate, timely and professional manner statewide.
As an inspector and fellow NACHI member, I understand the hesitation within some of the membership and others whom use the MB for information and general comments. As has been previously posted, contact information has been provided for any questions or concerns.
The concept behind the launch of this site is to provide necessary services for the Florida homeowner and drive more business to the inspection industry and, via various marketing and media channels, provide more information to the consumer.
If I can answer any questions or explore this topic further, do not hesitate to email me at our temporary email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call me direct at 954-464-5870 cell.
