GUARANTEE GOLD is awarded a podium finish at the Insurance Canada Technology Awards

GUARANTEE GOLD was recently awarded a podium finish for the Insurance Canada Technology Award (ICTA) for GOLD Watermark in conjunction with DC Pro for their AquaTrip device. The awards were part of the 2017 Insurance Canada Technology Conference held in Toronto, ON. In a competitive field of thirteen finalists, with each having made significant contributions to the Canadian insurance industry, GOLD Watermark emerged as an award winner, recognized for a significant contribution to an industry wide problem: the unmanaged risk of unwanted water.

As water is now the leading cause of loss for homeowners in Canada, GUARANTEE GOLD sought to address this challenge with a proactive, client focused approach to water damage mitigation. Through offering complimentary or reduced rate installations of the AquaTrip automatic shut off device, ICE ID visual assessments, H2O appraisals, and weather alerts via the GOLD Mobile App, GOLD Watermark is a first of its kind program in the Canadian insurance industry.

“We’re honoured to have been recognized at the 2017 ICTA conference for technology innovation,” says Emma Mehler, National Appraisal Manager, GUARANTEE GOLD. “The GOLD Watermark Program demonstrates our commitment to move beyond indemnifying risk, to pro-active water mitigation solutions centered on customer experience, and we’re thankful for the recognition in the industry.”

This award marks yet another accolade for the GOLD Watermark program, as GOLD Watermark which was awarded the Silver Stevie at the International Business Awards earlier in 2016.
