Frank Cowan Company Launches New Risk Management Website

April 2, 2012 – PRINCETON, ON – Frank Cowan Company is pleased to announce the launch of a new risk management website called the Risk Management Centre of Excellence.

The Risk Management Centre of Excellence is an invaluable resource for municipalities as they try to prevent incidents before they occur. By identifying risks early, municipalities are able to take corrective action, mitigate loss and save money.

“We understand the importance our clients place on risk management. Frank Cowan Company has a dedicated team of professionals who identify and help solve risk exposure issues. The Risk Management Centre of Excellence gives clients a proactive resource to research and take steps within their organization to mitigate risk and reduce future costs,” describes Larry Ryan, President, Frank Cowan Company.

One of Frank Cowan Company’s key areas of expertise is risk management. The company allocates a substantial amount of effort monitoring legislation and current issues to educate clients about any potential changes in exposures and ways they can manage risk. Inspectors also perform loss control assessments and risk managers lead regional educational seminars. It’s a free, value added service that all clients receive.

While the Risk Management Centre of Excellence is available to everyone, the bulk of content in the resource library is password protected. “This allows us to share the entire library with our clients and broker partners. Based on feedback we’ve received during our pilot phase, this will be a big selling point for Frank Cowan Company clients,” says Bryce Sibbick, Acting Vice President Client Services and Business Development, Frank Cowan Company.

“We’re very proud of the Risk Management Centre of Excellence. A lot of effort has gone into making the website something our clients and broker partners will find invaluable. The best part is; the site is always being updated. New articles, case studies and templates are added every week. Clients can also suggest articles and our team will write pieces based on the requests we receive,” adds Barb Szychta, Director, Risk Management Services, Frank Cowan Company.

Canadian municipalities are embracing technology as a means of running an efficient organization. Online resources enable information to be accessed and shared in the field. Tablets and mobile devices provide a quick way for information, such as that in the Risk Management Centre of Excellence, to be downloaded and applied instantly.

Future enhancements to the website are already in development. Phase two will include information specific to other specialized insurance programs offered by Frank Cowan Company including Health & Wellness, Children & Youth, Daycares & Schools and Community Services.
