Austbrokers has partnered with CoreLogic to enable their partners to access Cordell Commercial Estimator, Cordell Sum Sure, and RP Data Professional. The addition of these new tools will continue to enhance the Austbrokers partners and set them apart from the majority of the industry, enhancing each broker’s profile, while providing clients with accurate estimates for the replacement costs of commercial and residential properties and ultimately attracting new clients.
Brokers will be able to have access to property data and analytic systems, which will give them deeply-researched construction data at the touch of a button. The data will give clients a better understanding of the appropriate sum insured for their building and, in the case of an insurable event, provide them with an accurate cost for rebuilding, making the process easier and faster.
Nigel Thomas, Divisional Chief Executive, Austbrokers Network, said, “Partnering with CoreLogic aligns to our Group’s strategy of being a trusted advisor. This new technology partnership will support our broker partners to enhance the value they bring to their clients, and continue to endorse them as trusted advisors.”
Mark O’Reilly, Austbrokers Countrywide, said, “Using CoreLogic systems means that we can add more value to our clients based on real data to give them a more accurate cost to rebuild, and thus a more robust insurance cover that better meets their needs. It also helps us stay ahead of trends in the market so we can give clients proactive advice to help them get the most out of their policy.”
Sonya Fisher, General Manager Sales - Insurance & Federal Government, CoreLogic, said, “CoreLogic is honoured to partner with Austbrokers and its broker partners to provide tools that add value to client engagement, address underinsurance for both commercial and residential properties, and help brokers stay abreast of what’s happening in the real estate market. Austbrokers was immediately able to see the value that the CoreLogic tools would deliver for both their brokers and their brokers’ clients, which made the decision to proceed an easy one.
Determining the level of insurance required for a commercial property can be difficult as the rebuild estimate should be for the cost to rebuild to current code standards and should also allow for cost inflation. CoreLogic’s deeply-researched Cordell construction cost data contains the most up-to-date prices for building materials, labour, and project timeframes, providing the ability to generate a real-time commercial building replacement cost estimate to reduce the risk of underinsurance.”
