Why the Mutual Risk Group uses thryve’s Renewal Information Gathering Portal

The Mutual Risk Group, which is an association of a number of large JSE-listed companies that participate in a common insurance vehicle to take care of their various assets, liability and motor insurance covers has recently started using thryve’s Renewal Information Gathering Portal to improve the process of gathering annual exposure and risk information for their annual insurance renewal.
 
“As a member of the Mutual Risk Group’s insurance programme, we needed a tool to replace the inefficient spreadsheet consolidation system we have used up until now”, said Evert Potgieter, Risk Management Director of Astral Foods Limited. Potgieter went on to say that “thryve’s Renewal Information Gathering Portal has proven to be just the tool we need. Not only has data accuracy improved, but we have been able to gather and consolidate this information much faster than before”.
 

How does thryve’s Renewal Information Gathering Portal work?

 
thryve’s Renewal Information Gathering Portal is a central repository in which businesses consolidate and gather their annual renewal information that needs to be given to their underwriters. This information is gathered from business units using a web-based renewal data collection system. The beauty about thryve’s Renewal Information Gathering Portal is that it doesn’t need high-speed Internet lines to perform optimally. thryve’s Renewal Information Gathering Portal will work just as well on any internet connection. You also do not need one licence for every user who uses the system: you’ll buy one licence and as many individuals who need to use the system, in your organization, will be able to use it.
 
Another great feature of the system, says Riaan Bekker: Riskonnect Solutions Manager at thryve (pty) ltd, is that “the thryve Riskonnect team will customise the system for each and every business depending on their needs. After renewal questionnaires are completed, brokers and the business then collaborate in order to verify the data”. “Brokers then use the data to negotiate renewals with underwriters. Clients have found that by using the Portal their information-gathering process is quicker and more accurate” says Riaan.
