Claims administration software that lets you work faster, smarter.

The TecnoClaims System is ideal for any type of maritime or logistics company. Exposures such as crew claims, with the need to track maintenance and cure obligations are common across vessel operating companies and TecnoClaims includes highly sophisticated but easy to use functions to improve the workflow needed to meet these obligations.

Whilst maritime needs are generic many industries have quite specific needs and to accommodate these the system has functionality built for those exact requirements available. Here are examples of a few.

Container & Bulk Shipping

Many needs are common. Crew injury/illness and repatriation being examples. Collision and allision claims are another. Cargo claims have quite different needs and these are catered for with a set of claims screens unique to container and another for bulk cargo.

Commercial Fishing

Back in 1995 our first user was a fishing company and the system remains in use to this day. Over the years needs have evolved with the latest cloud based iteration providing efficiencies not previously available.

Some challenges remain the same though with Covid driven exposures adding to the claims management needs.

Cruise Lines

With many years of experience working with Cruise Lines TecnoRisk have developed many specific features to tailor the System exactly to Cruise Industry needs. These include:

  • Terminology familiar to users e.g. 'Passenger' used rather than the 'Third Party Injury' for non-Cruise Line users.
  • Shore excursions and Tour Operators recorded in Passenger claims.
  • Voyage can be recorded/populated from a Table populated by EDI.
  • Optional ability to record cruise credits.
  • Crew information can be recorded from an HR System interface.
  • Tracking of claims by Manning Agent is included.
  • Crew claims track shore referrals.
  • Crew claims module available to record and manage Philippines Overseas Employment Agency Claims.
  • Module available to record information required for US Medicare Section 111 Reporting with no need to rekey information into third party systems. Optional is for TecnoRisk to provide Reporting Agent services.
  • Module available to interface with onboard accident reporting system.

A host of other features benefit Claims Management and reporting in a way no other System can match. Contact TecnoRisk to arrange for an online Webinar to help you gain an understanding of the options available to assist you.
