Membership

RAMP is an exclusive Membership Program specifically tailored for condo associations, condo unit owners, and commercial property owners. The Program provides step-by-step risk mitigation platforms utilizing proprietary technologies to Prepare its members to Respond, Manage and Recover from all losses.

Program Principals

Prepare: The increasing regularity and intensity of recent natural disasters are powerful reminders of the vital importance to prepare for the worst. Unfortunately, many concentrate their preparedness efforts on specific events, such as hurricanes or floods, while neglecting common disasters like tornadoes, fires, or water damage from burst pipes. This limited approach leaves properties exposed to unforeseen risks and potential losses. Adopting a comprehensive preparedness plan that addresses all possible losses is essential to mitigate risks effectively.
The RAMP Program’s platforms and technologies are the key in preparing members. RAMP assesses its members’ unique vulnerabilities and challenges through vigorous risk analysis. Based on this analysis, the program develops a comprehensive disaster plan tailored to each member’s specific needs. This ensures members are prepared for all potential losses, not just a select few.

Respond: In the aftermath of a loss, time is of the essence. With the pressure to respond, many properties fall into the trap of relying on vendors and contractors who lack the necessary resources or financial capabilities to perform the work. The RAMP Program goes beyond providing a one-size-fits-all approach by implementing a comprehensive vetting process for all vendors and contractors. RAMP’s vendor program ensures that all vendors and contractors have been thoroughly vetted and pre-approved by the member before engagement. Through this process, members have peace of mind knowing that their vendors and contractors possess the necessary resources, expertise, and financial stability to address all members’ needs promptly.

Manage: Over the years, we’ve observed that property owners and managers often face challenges due to the lack of necessary resources to manage complex insurance claims. In today’s landscape, insurance carriers have become more demanding, requiring comprehensive documentation and reporting before authorizing any payouts. These added burdens often lead to prolonged recovery periods, disputes, conflicts, and sometimes even litigation. Here’s where RAMP comes to the rescue by providing members with a seamless and stress-free claims experience. RAMP expertly handles all insurance documentation and claims management responsibilities from the initial damage assessment to final project completion. Our proprietary technologies and comprehensive online portal provide real-time project scope and cost reporting through transparency and accuracy throughout the claims process. RAMP’s claims management systems provide members the roadmap to a rapid recovery.

Recover: Effective recovery begins with effective planning. Many property owners experience prolonged recovery due to inadequate preparation, engaging with unsuitable vendors, insufficient documentation, and ineffective claim management. Full recovery demands experience, time, preparation, support, and the proper resources. RAMP platforms streamline the claims process by precisely defining the recovery process, scope of work, and costs, thereby paving the way to fair and reasonable claim resolution. Members are made whole again through RAMP’s recovery platforms.
