CSI for Insurance Companies

Why it works:

Setup of regional and temporary popup locations for mass damage inspections. From manual inspection over hail scanner to mobile paint solutions - we are always one step ahead.

CSI has been active in the hail business for many years and has specialized on mass hail damage catastrophes in automotive caused by storms. We have embraced the challenge to make our customers' distractive side activities, i.e. handling hail storm damages, our core business. By standardising management protocol we have become ISO-certified for Quality Management and now support our customers worldwide whenever and wherever additional capacities or know-how is needed, all tailor-made to the individual needs of our customers.

Historically, CSI has been pioneering the hail business in automotive. Still today, we are consistently introducing innovations and break-through technology. CSI is the first company worldwide to include hail scanning technology (the hail scanner) and consistent digital project monitoring in its service portfolio. It works nicely, because we look at customers' problems through their eyes, question our approaches in daily activities to identify potential for improvement, and have all ideas tested in reality based scenarios, before applying them to our customers' projects. This way, we design innovation and make our processes more efficient every day.

Customer exaltation is our main objective.

Our customer portfolio has been growing steadily, and in 2018, we have handled and repaired more then 10.000 vehicles in XL-projects throughout Europe.
