Many companies do not keep claims information internally. They simply defer this record-keeping process to their insurance provider. However, there are several benefits to tracking this data in-house.

Operating any size business, whether it be a small local shop or a large retailer, can be costly. Your business could end up having to close its doors as a result of having to pay out the cost of an insurance claim. As a retailer, it is essential to both be aware and prepare for the most prominent types of insurance claims facing your industry.
