HSB launches an insurance maintenance platform

HSB has teamed up with HELIXintel to offer a one-stop online maintenance platform for businesses and other organizations to service critical building equipment from air conditioning and refrigeration to lighting and heating systems.

The HELIXintel digital platform helps customers manage their maintenance records and automates the process of sourcing and scheduling service from authorized providers for heating and cooling equipment, roofing, lighting systems, and other key assets. It will be available to HSB’s equipment breakdown insurance policyholders and customers of Sensor Solutions by HSB, which provides Internet of Things technology services. Customers will get a seamless connection with service providers, can take advantage of rebates and credits without doing the legwork, and may reduce supply chain delays with direct access to manufacturers for ordering equipment and parts.

In March, HELIXintel announced a $4 million seed round led by the HSB fund of Munich Re Ventures.

“In today’s tough economy, it’s a challenge for businesses to keep up with equipment maintenance. We’ve made it simple to choose the right maintenance provider, order replacement parts, and get service from experienced dealers. It saves our clients time and money, so they can focus on growing their businesses.” – Greg Barats, president and chief executive officer of HSB.

“HSB and HELIXintel will touch millions of businesses across the United States by bringing efficient ways to maintain facilities and equipment, while saving owners and operators time and money.” – Jon DeWald, chief executive officer of HELIXintel.
