Structural Warranty Providers: "An ounce of loss prevention is worth a pound of insurance"
A time for resilience…
Managers of the prevailing culture content themselves with the pursuit of short term results and rewards even if they know them to be unsustainable. Leaders for the Digital Age seek the means of sustainability and understand that resilience is a fundamental business property for times of financial uncertainty.
At Checkmate we understand that a successful project or team draws collective strength [resilience] from the properties of its constituent parts. When individual components, complementary disciplines and complex processes are integrated for a common purpose, these interdependent operations form the infrastructure [networks] that enable function greater than the sum of the parts.
Within the our team we possess in depth knowledge of and participate in a wide variety of fields of operation that are inter-connected through the work that we undertake in conjunction with our stakeholder networks: construction; insurance; environmental and risk management; IT; property development, management and investment.
The breadth of our knowledge enhances our ability to identify issues that could affect stakeholders in our own supply networks [business ecosystem] and reinforce the need for effective [transparent] communication of information.
We have applied our understanding to create flexible solutions and processes able to adapt to the changing needs of our stakeholders: delivered by a, constantly evolving, online system and supported by knowledgeable professionals…a business fit for the Digital Age.
