The services we provide include insurance placements, claims analysis – handling and processing, risk analysis and recommendations, account maintenance, and insurance administration.
We are currently developing our business strategy to focus on becoming an insurance service provider, which proves to be very useful for our clients because to them, the aspect of insurance administration was never an easy task to manage by anyone outside the insurance industry. We aim at taking over the client’s insurance issue so that they need not worry with regards to providing comprehensive coverage(s), claims management nor administrational work that relates to these issues, which will eventually lead to reducing their costs by not having to employ staffs to manage it.
FRESNEL is totally dedicated and committed to the industry.
