Claim Central announces a three-year partnership with PPG to reduce average repair costs for insurers

Tuesday 13 December 2016: Today Claim Central, pioneers of live video streaming and claims fulfilment across the Asia Pacific, announced a three-year strategic partnership with global coatings and speciality products company, PPG.

Under the agreement, Claim Central’s trades and suppliers will have access to discounted high quality paint, allowing savings to be passed directly to insurance companies. These savings will reduce the average repair cost of claims while enhancing the quality and service experience for policyholders.

Travis Dale, Head of Operations Australia and New Zealand, Claim Central, said that partnering with reputable organisations such as PPG is a natural fit and key to maintaining Claim Central’s innovative and disruptive positioning in the insurance industry.

“Claim Central is delighted to have signed a three-year partnership with PPG, a well-managed business which has a long heritage of providing superior customer service and high quality products.

“We are continuously looking for ways to meet more of the needs of our clients through simple innovative solutions. Average repair claims cost is an ongoing blip on the radar of all insurance companies across the country. Through enhancing our supply chain process, we are reducing the claims costs for insurers with the savings ultimately being passed on to their policyholders,” he said.

Luke Power, National Account Manager, PPG Architectural Coatings, says that with this partnership PPG can deliver significant benefits for Claim Central’s trades and suppliers: “Ultimately, it’s the end consumer who wins – they’ll enjoy the superior quality of our paint for many years to come.”
