Derek Crots is a South African insurance risk specialist and a marketing and insurance entrepreneur. He is the chairperson of the FIA in the North West province and serves the broker community with passion and integrity.
Derek began handling the responsibility of inventories for clients in 1996 at a Corporate Brokerage, and in the process learned the value of having a detailed and up to date inventory, particularly when a client had a claim and had to provide proof of ownership of all items that were stolen, lost or damaged. It was this reason that Derek founded Silent Wolf’s Software ” Blue ” which is an application that makes it easier for clients to keep track of their valuable assets as well as the proof of ownership when acquiring those assets. As an experienced broker, Derek urges all brokers to provide clarity to their clients in the issue of proof of ownership and explaining the value of updating the client’s inventory.
Through ” Blue “, Derek’s confidence in putting the clients’ needs first continues to prosper in enabling brokers to give the best advice to their clients. Furthermore, ” Blue ” serves as a new technology system that makes the process of a claim painless and also protects the clients and the insurers against fraudulent claims.
