Newest ‘Making it Right’ Episodes Highlight ASI Adjusters Going the Extra Mile.

St. Petersburg, Fla. – July 08, 2015 – ASI announces its participation in Enservio’s award-winning web series called Making it Right. The series features insurance claims adjusters going the extra mile to provide exceptional service to policyholders. ASI is featured in five video interviews, all based on letters from ASI’s policyholders raving about their experiences and satisfaction with their claims adjusters.

ASI is one of the 15 largest homeowners carriers in the United States and has a growing level of satisfaction among policyholders and independent insurance agents. Jeff Hannon, ASI’s vice president of Marketing, said, "The company receives an astonishing number of thank you letters from our policyholders. We share the feedback with our employees and celebrate everyone’s part in delivering the exceptional service."

"In this new batch of five videos, we wanted to highlight the post-claim policyholder perspective," said Joel Makhluf, senior director of Marketing for Enservio. "We began the process with reviewing the letters policyholders had sent to ASI and were thrilled to see these homeowner customers willingly come forward to share their insurer experiences. It’s a great feeling to see policyholders sitting down with their adjusters and being so happy with their final outcomes."

In the video "The Message," homeowner Kelly Conrad-Simon of Texas recounts a historic wildfire that engulfed her home. Her mother’s phone message said, "You have to come home, but there is no home." Fortunately, ASI’s catastrophe adjuster came to the rescue by providing temporary housing and advanced funding. Kelly eventually received a check for the value of her home. "I was now free to move forward with my life," Kelly said.

"The Sirens" video interviews the Conleys, a husband and wife retelling a time when emergency response sirens alerted them of an oncoming tornado. "We were in the bathroom on blankets, trying to protect our kids," said Mrs. Conley. The gale forces rolled the couple’s 26-foot RV camper against the side of their home. ASI field adjuster Tucker Patch said, "The whole claim is not just about writing a check; it’s a holistic experience, where you’re helping someone get their life back." The Conleys said, "Friends of ours said we wish we had a Tucker."

Walter Gregg moved south to Florida to retire and was surprised to discover a sudden severe hailstorm battered his home. Having never filed a claim, he told his insurer, ASI, "Treat me like you would treat your own father." ASI rose to the occasion. "We always try to find a solution that works for everybody," Tucker said.

Court room drama unfolds in "The Apology" video as ASI senior claims adjuster Charlotte McGill-Colyer relates an arson hearing involving the defendant, a single mother with young daughters. The arsonist pleaded guilty yet took time out to thank Charlotte in front of the judge, saying: "She treated me with nothing but kindness and respect."

In "Amazing Grace," human compassion is on full display as desk adjuster Robin Treanor recounts her time helping an insured who experienced a devastating pipe burst that leaked 70,000 gallons of water into the home. Robin worked tirelessly to help the insured become whole again and when the tables were turned and Robin was the one in need of help of a different kind, the insured was there for her. "He literally prayed out loud for me over the phone while having his dinner in a sports bar," Robin said. "That was a very special blessing for me."

"We have a highly trained team of professionals who provide policyholders with compassion and direction during a critical time," said Patrick McCrink, ASI’s vice president of Claims. "We are thrilled that our policyholders are compelled to share their experiences with us."

The "Making it Right" series has won national recognition by the marketing community. The international MarCom Awards named Enservio as a 2014 Gold Award winner, and the Interactive Media Council honored the series with an "Outstanding Achievement" award.
