UPDATE ON THE ITIC WEBSITE
We are pleased to see from the results of the Claims Review survey that so many Members have already found time to access the ITIC website at www.itic-insure.com.
This edition of The Intermediary is the first to be concurrently published both in hard copy and electronically on the website at www.itic-insure.com.
The appeal of internet applications is that information can be instantly hared by companies around the globe. ITIC Members benefit from the commercial and loss prevention information made available by the Club and, as the Members are located in 88 different countries, the ITIC website provides an ideal way of sharing this information and receiving feedback from the Members.
Since its creation in June of last year, the website has been undergoing continuous development. The first phase was to create a site providing a brief introduction to the Club and an indication of the services provided. The website explains what the Club is and who the account executives are. It shows the types of insurance available, and also allows a proposal form to be submitted on-line.
The next phase has been to provide on-line access to ITIC publications such as The Intermediary, the Claims Review and the Club’s Rules and circulars. This facility is only available to the Members of ITIC, (you will be advised of your password shortly) and is designed to make it as easy as possible for Members to refer to Club circulars and distribute loss prevention advice to staff and branch offices. The publications will continue to be produced an distributed in hardcopy, but current and back dated issues of ITIC publications can now be found on the website. Members will now also be able to download ‘screensavers’ which provide loss prevention advice in the form of ‘10 Golden Rules’ for ship brokers and for the delivery of cargo, by ship agents.
The development of the website will continue with the release of further electronic products over the coming months, including an area specifically designed to assist the Members of ITIC, who have purchased the Club’s ‘additional legal costs and debt Collection’ (Rule 10) cover. The Club is developing www.itic-insure.com to give you greater access to ITIC information. If you have any comments or suggestions for the website or any of the electronic services provided, please do not hesitate to contact the managers.
