QUEBEC CITY, June 2, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Completing an inventory of your
possessions may be very practical, but it can be a long and tedious
process that few can claim to have completed. Fortunately, thanks to
SSQauto's new property inventory tool, making a list of your
possessions can now be easy, fast and most importantly, fun.
In addition to helping users calculate the actual value of their
possessions and update their home insurance contract with the help of
their insurer, where applicable, the virtual property inventory
application offered by SSQauto could ultimately be used to support any
home insurance claim. This new solution will help users make a list of
belongings that have been stolen or damaged, and send the list to their
respective insurer (SSQauto or another insurer) in order to facilitate
and accelerate the claim process. In addition, SSQauto's mobile
application meets the recommendations of the Insurance Bureau of Canada
(IBC), which suggests that insureds keep a copy of their property
inventory outside their home along with receipts, photographs or video
A step by step guide simplifies the inventory process
The process is simple: first, users create a profile for their residence
or residences, where applicable (house, condo, apartment, cottage,
etc.), which will be divided up into rooms (living room, kitchen,
bedroom, garden shed, etc.). Then for each room, users create an entry
per object worthy of being included in the inventory. The record
contains basic information such as the make and model, purchase date,
value of the object, a photo and the receipt (optional). If users don't
want to photograph all of their belongings, they may replace the photos
by a short video clip that pans the room. The property inventory may be
kept on the user's smart phone. The user will have the option of
generating a copy in PDF format, if necessary.
SSQauto, a leader in digital customer experience
The property inventory is an addition to the three modules already
available on SSQauto's mobile application launched on April 1, 2014.
These include: the joint report, the auto insurance claim, and the home
insurance claim. This initiative positions SSQauto as a leader in
digital client experience in Quebec. The application is available to
everyone, whether they are insured with SSQauto or not, and is
available for the iOS and Android operating systems.
