Security firm Simplisafe has teamed with insurance company Aviva to help businesses reduce the severity or prevent costly insurance claims on their premises.
According to Simplisafe, the initial pilot will see qualifying Aviva commercial lines customers receive a custom Simplisafe security system at no extra cost. The system includes a HD camera, an array of security sensors and smoke, water and temperature sensors.
The company added that the partnership is designed to support a variety of industries, including retail, offices, wholesale, industrial and more and is suitable for both single and multi-premises businesses.
Simplisafe UK general manager Jonathan Wall said, “At SimpliSafe we are proud to have over a decade of experience in the security sector and protect more than 100,000 businesses across the U.S. and U.K. We are pleased to be partnering with Aviva to offer their commercial customers a solution to help prevent common incidents that can happen in the workplace, such as theft, fires, water damage and burst pipes. Whatsmore, our leading Pro Premium professional monitoring plan can provide extra peace of mind as police and the fire service will be dispatched in the event of an incident, even if you’re away from the business.
“We are aligned in our commitment to provide businesses with flexible and affordable options and are looking forward to getting SimpliSafe systems into the hands of qualifying Aviva policyholders, to help better protect their businesses.”
Aviva chief distribution officer Gareth Hemming added, “Our partnership with SimpliSafe highlights our commitment to helping customers prevent bad things happening. Our role as an insurer is to be there to support individuals and businesses in the event of a claim, but we want to do more to help stop them happening in the first place.
“We’ve invested in this proposition because we believe it’ll deliver in helping our customers to potentially reduce the quantity or severity of claims, limiting unwanted disruptions in the future. Through the data that Aviva capture, our long-term ambition is to fundamentally change how we write business for those customers who we know to be a ‘better risk’ based on their adoption and utilising of security devices to protect their business.”
