Members of the claimsplanet team take to the oceans at the end of June, competing in the Round the Island yacht race; a one-day contest circumnavigating the Isle of Wight. The annual event regularly features circa 1,400 boats, carrying up to 15,000 sailors, making the Round the Island Race one of the largest yacht races in the world and the fourth largest sporting event in the UK after the London Marathon and the Great North and South Runs.
The race embodies the claimsplanet team’s pursuit of excellence as it continues to develop one of the most innovative platforms for improving the entire claims management process. claimsplanet enables insurers to assign claims to almost any iPhone or Android user throughout the globe. The agent or even end-user uses claimsplanet to take time and geo-tagged images of damaged items that they can then annotate with drawing and text tools, digitally sign and then submit for rapid claims processing: Simple, safe, secure. On June 29th, the claimsplanet team will race against teams from as far and wide as Europe and the USA, following the 50 nautical mile route around the beautiful Isle of Wight. So look out for the claimsplanet flag onboard Luella 2 and make sure you give the team a ‘big wave’ to encourage them on their way.
