InsureTEK is a company that offers loss control as a service to a wide range of property companies and REITs including multi-family resorts, hotels offices, and military properties. They source IOT sensors, and partners with Mastec – a Fortune 500 company – who perform local installations. Their services are provided via multi-year contracts.
We recently partnered with InsureTEK to develop an embedded microinsurance to include alongside their offering.
Our client wanted to launch a water leak reimbursement warranty program to enhance their service offering to 1000s of properties throughout the US and Europe, but found that they were unable to find an insurer in the market who was willing to find similar coverage in the marketplace.
MIC Global evaluated the client’s sensor technology and designed an embedded insurance warranty product customized to the prospective client’s loss-control as a service.
The service warranty product was embedded into the monthly subscription cost of the IoT smart device product. Water loss/ damage reimbursement is then triggered when water is detected by the installed sensors. Customers are incentivized to choose our partner as their product comes with the added value of a service warranty to protect customers’ properties.
InsureTEK have installed around 1000 devices as of August 2022 across multiple properties. Within a short period of time, these devices have detected water leaks* which has led to thousands of dollars saved per year on the cost water, lowered energy bills and reduced the properties’ overall environmental impact and footprint.
*continuous running water due to faulty, worn out or incorrect plumbing
Installations of InsureTEK’s sensors have not only greatly reduced the risk of water loss, they have also made the losses more predictable and therefore easier to finance.
By reducing water loss, Insuretek have positively contributed to their Environmental, Social and Governance ‘ESG’ credentials. Under Environmental, water preservation is the number one issue for property companies.
“When we were seeking a company to strategically partner with us on our innovative Loss Control as a Service platform, we searched the market for a company that understood that the risk management and insurance markets needed to evolve to stay relevant. MIC Global brought an entrepreneur’s spirit matched with a technical expertise that quite simply has become a cornerstone of our business. Their innovators and professionals are second to none in matching outside the box thinking with regulatory compliance and coming up with a solution where 1+1= 5!”

“For the first time in history, underwriters now have access to real-time data emanating from the risks they cover. Starting with water loss monitoring, MIC facilitates InsureTEK’s LCaS, delivering accurate, seamless data which lowers risk in a cost-effective platform. This advance in loss control underwriting technology also checks the ESG box for energy and water conservation, giving underwriters new tools for the policyholders we serve. Simply stated, LCaS which has enormous potential for a new age of underwriting critical loss events.”
