To help our customers save hours researching the dusty world of insurance, we’ve put together an exhaustive guide that will empower you to communicate with vendors, tenants, and brokers effectively and efficiently.  We are excited to announce the Jones’ Insurance Guide — the ultimate resource for all things insurance and risk & compliance.

How to use Jones Insurance Guide?

1. Solve any COI-related issues – fast

(Available exclusively to Jones existing customers)

As you [probably] know, Jones compliance software tracks COIs, compares them against your unique insurance requirements, and flags any gaps in coverage.

When Jones reviews COIs on your behalf, we identify gaps such as a missing Waiver of subrogation or Automobile liability coverage and notify all stakeholders (a property manager, a tenant, and/or a vendor) of the status.

But what if you are unsure what Waiver of Subrogation is, where to find it on the COI, and how to resolve the gap? 

From now on, email notifications that flag specific gaps in coverage include a link to a corresponding article in our Insurance Guide!

Email Notification - Jones Insurance Guide

The article will explain what a Waiver of Subrogation refers to, where to find it on the COI, and how to determine whether or not it is missing:
