Heading out to Montana in the morning for a 4-day conference of vendor-principles sponsored by the new FISERV group of flood adjusting servicing companies.
For those of you CADO folks that work flood, FISERV, Inc. has bought National Flood Services, Inc. (NFS) in Kalispell, MT and National Con-Serv., Inc. (NCSI)in Rockville, MD. These two comapnies make up a large block of the flood insurance business. FISERV is a large, multi-national corporation that likes vertical markets.
Four days of meetings and discussions revolving around the future of flood adjusting. I will be in a very special place.
As you may or may not know, NCSI controls the direct side of the federal flood program. And many WYO's place their flood business with either NFS or NCSI (and that's enough government acronyms in one sentence for this New York City boy).
The folks over at National Flood Services are top notch and if you should ever get a chance to work their flood claims you are treated with respect and true professionalism. If you live in "timbucktwo" they will assign direct if they have a loss in your area, but usually they work through vendors (like SIMSOL INSURANCE SERVICES, INC.).
As we watch Bertha all eyes are trained on the Gulf Coast. In the meantime, I will report back to all the CADO viewers on the happenings in Montana and just what they mean to the guy (or gal) in the field.
Thanks for listening...
