Pogo.Pro helps flood victims make insurance claims

MONTREAL, May 25, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Quebec flood victims are turning to Pogo.Pro to deal with insurance claims. Pogo.Pro, Canada's online renovations management platform, consists of an estimate builder, a bidding platform, and project management tools, designed to protect Quebec flood victims who need to document damages and follow the correct claim procedures.

Quebec Public Security is promising to make good on insurance claims up to $200,000. Despite this, having dealt with various claims, it appears that some insurance adjusters have been instructed to take a hard-nosed approach. Pogo.Pro protects victims by providing tools that document the damage and estimate the cost to make repairs. Only by following published procedures can flood victims ensure the best possible outcome when making a claim.

Pogo.Pro's renovations management platform has been adapted specifically to deal with these procedures. The platform, which automates renovation estimates and tenders for home owners lends itself very well in supporting insurance claims. This kind of claim always requires detailed documentation and pricing estimates. Pogo.Pro, president, Mark Sibthorpe, foresaw the need for this kind of platform during the ice storm in 98, a time where he discovered that "victims of natural disasters" need protection; platform development began two years ago. One result of this effort is that Pogo.Pro can provide flood victims a document trail that can be referred to at any time, especially if there is a claim dispute. Documenting damage is a critical part of the claims process. Not doing so may cause delays or even reduce potential claim value.

Apart from repairs, flood victims also need to prove that they have taken actions to prevent further damage. This is because after water levels drop a worse problem lurks: mold and dampness. Raw sewage does not mix well with floors and walls. That is why people are required to use protective mask, gloves and clothing any time they enter the flooded areas. For these flooding victims, Pogo.Pro can identify qualified pros to take urgent action.
