April 2021 update

A better way

April has seen the launch of our new brand and website, MA Group Property Claims, which has generated a lot of interest already, and a new case study showing how MA Group and one of our contractors pulled out all the stops to keep a doctor’s surgery and Covid-19 vaccination centre open.

We have news on the Suppliers of the Quarter ended March 2021, all of which will be receiving their champagne and certificates very soon. And we have the the second of our “Meet the Team” features – this time the Propostion Team.

New integrated service

April has seen the launch of our new brand and website, MA Group Property Claims. This has been the result of our huge investments in integrated systems and processes, staff training and efficiencies to bring together our three property claims businesses into one seamless service – bringing together validations and surveyingdisaster restoration and building reinstatement under one integrated claims management solution.

VirtusRevival and MA Assist remain as brands that can be used individually by insurers who do not wish to use the fully integrated service. But for those who wish to make the most of reduced hand-offs and friction, better customer outcomes and indemnity savings, MA Group Property Claims is the answer.

MA Group Property Claims delivers an integrated, seamless service that enhances the customer journey and delivers value for money to insurers. We help insurers retain customers through high levels of customer satisfaction. Supported by: 

Building on our strong reputation for innovative, highly efficient services which save time and money for insurers on all aspects of property claims,  we combine highs level of insurance knowledge and building repair expertise with a detailed understanding of customer service excellence.

Revival Branch of the Quarter

Our Revival Branch of the Quarter is Halifax. Andrew, Steve and the team consistently achieved 4 stars throughout the quarter and also received six MAD announcements internally following excellent feedback from clients and customers – including one from a famous sporting VIP!!

Great property claims planning and communication

Our latest case study demonstrates how great property claims planning and communication by MA Group and contractors helped to keep Covid-19 vaccinations going in February/March this year.

A doctor’s surgery in Norfolk was hit by a car during a police chase.The impact caused significant damage which would have been a concern in normal times, but as this surgery was also a Covid-19 vaccination centre it was even more important that the claim be dealt with quickly.

MA Group worked with its contractor J Lovels to make the property safe the same day, planned the works to ensure that they could be carried out safely whilst the surgery remained open and then worked quickly to ensure the claim was finished and closed in less than a month of receiving it.

Well done to everyone involved at J Lovels and MA Group for delivering such a great quick and efficient service
