Ownersite Technologies and RP Risk Advisors Develop Interactive Disaster Preparation Tool Kit for Homeowners
New Partnership Leads to First Online Interactive Assistance for Homeowners
ROSWELL, GA – September 1, 2008 - Ownersite Technologies, developer of personal asset management software for home and vehicle owners, today announced that they have partnered with RP Risk Advisors, an enterprise risk management firm specializing in preparing companies for contingency events, to develop the industry's first interactive disaster preparation tool kit for homeowners.
Home Ownersite (home.ownersite.com) is a complete home ownership lifecycle tool created by Ownersite Technologies to help homeowners record all of the important details of home ownership, from a comprehensive and sharable home inventory to an online repository to store tax documents, mortgage information and insurance details. The new disaster preparation tool kit will enhance the usefulness of the Home Ownersite service by evolving consumer disaster preparation from paper checklists to an interactive tool kit that can be accessed via the Internet or wireless device.
The online solution will take the homeowner through a series of questions to test their level of preparedness based on where they live, i.e. near the water, in a hurricane zone, or area of potential wildfires. Once these unique components are plugged in, the disaster preparation tool kit helps the homeowner build an escape plan and a disaster kit (water, batteries, blankets, cell phone, etc.). The interactive system will also remind homeowners to build a home inventory so that they know what they own, and help them to have a clear understanding about the different types of insurance coverage (replacement value vs. actual value, etc.).
"While paper resources have been available for consumers for a number of years, a comprehensive online tool kit of this nature that is customized to a homeowner’s specific needs and location has not been available until now. I am thrilled to be working with RP Risk Advisors because they are a recognized leader in the corporate disaster recovery industry," said Steven Eppinger, President and CEO of Ownersite Technologies. "They have brought substantial expertise to the creation of this extremely useful tool for homeowners."
Ralph Petti, President of RP Risk Advisors, noted, "With hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and wild fires, it is important that everyone have a heightened awareness of potential hazards. Homeowners need a disaster plan for natural disasters, fires, and theft just as much as companies do. Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important aspect of being prepared when the worst hits. We developed this tool kit with the intent of making the same degree of planning capability that corporations use available to the consumer so that they can have peace of mind, knowing they are ready for the unexpected. There is deep functionality to the online disaster preparation tool kit yet it is user-friendly so that the whole family can use it."
Home Ownersite can be found on the web at http://home.ownersite.com and a subscription to the service can be purchased for as little as $29.95 per year for a full year of protection.
