What is FNOL?
FNOL stands for First Notification of Loss. It’s the initial report made to the insurer in the event of an accident, loss or damage of an insured vehicle.
Typically, FNOL is the first step in the claims process, and it’s a phrase that’s widely used in automotive, insurance and breakdown recovery sectors when reporting an incident. The term FNOL is also used in telematics too, where it can be used to describe an automated alert that’s triggered by G Force readings inside a black box tracking device. In these instances, alerts are usually delivered by email, and are designed to assist transport managers through enhanced visibility of incidents as soon as they happen. However, some businesses choose to liaise with claimants through a more personal approach, often outsourcing their FNOL processes to a team of experts who will handle the claims process, repair or recovery from the moment it’s first reported.
What’s the benefit of outsourcing an FNOL process?
For fleet operators, outsourcing their FNOL process gives them back critical time for other priorities. This is because FNOL is never as simple as just taking a phone call and making notes; it’s all about collating the exact right information on anything and everything that’s happened, identifying the correct type of recovery or repair vehicles to deploy, and reporting out on the incident to all stakeholders, supply chain and claimant.
FNOL can be a very lengthy process, though it is arguably the most essential step. As a result, many commercial businesses choose to work with a specialist FNOL service to expand their offerings.
Is an outsourced FNOL process easier to manage?
Absolutely. Specialists such as Egertons are able to offer a complete 24-hour call centre, available to support your existing telephone services. This means that no matter the time of day, there will always be a team of highly trained experts available to collate all relevant information, deploy the required services and present a full report at the right time.
Will my customers know they’re speaking with a different vendor?
Not necessarily, no. The great thing about choosing Egertons as your FNOL provider is that we are able to fully white label our services.
This means that your customers will only ever recognise your brand, your expertise and your service. We will act completely as an extension of your business, but we will handle anything you’d like us to on your behalf.
