How to Look Up Insurance Coverage For Any Vendor Or Subcontractor On The Jones Network

Note: The Jones Network is currently available for NYC-based properties and projects. The network will launch nationwide at the beginning of 2023.

Consider a common scenario: You need to approve a new vendor to enter your building (you’re a property manager) or start working at your construction site (you’re a project manager). How long would it take for you to confirm their insurance compliance? Would it take hours? Days? Weeks?

The truth is, you have no idea—not until you’ve collected their certificate of insurance (COI), reviewed it against your requirements, and identified the coverage gaps.  

At Jones, we believe you deserve to know how likely a vendor or subcontractor is to comply with your requirements before hiring them. That’s why we built The Jones Network—a single source of truth for insurance data. 

Let’s see how you can look up anyone’s insurance coverage in just three clicks.

Why look up vendor insurance coverage?

The main benefit of using The Jones Network is instant access to insurance data. Knowing how likely a vendor is to be compliant allows you to make informed decisions:

—Inform tenants that approving their ad-hoc vendors might take several days because the quality of their insurance coverage presents a risk to the building

—Vet vendors in advance and hire the ones most likely to be compliant for time-sensitive projects

—Plan your week in advance, knowing that vendors can quickly be approved and start working as early as the following day

How does The Jones Profile work?


Currently, The Jones Network has hundreds of thousands of vendor COIs on file, and this number is growing daily. Each of these vendors has a Jones Profile—an insurance coverage summary alongside key insurance contact information and predictive analytics on the probability of becoming compliant on your property or project.

 In addition to the basic info (such as the company’s name and address), you will be able to see:

— Insurance coverage details
— Predicted compliance status
— Verified insurance contacts
