CLAIMS MANAGEMENT

Systech has a global reputation as a leading claims consultant on major projects and clients can be confident that we have the professionalism and expertise to look after their interests.

We provide clients with an honest appraisal of their contractual and commercial position at the outset of a commission and do not embark on a process until all the risks and benefits have been considered. It is our policy to discuss a client's specific claim objectives with them and then to provide recommendations as to how they can be achieved. As part of that process a schedule of activities with associated resources and completion dates will be prepared to give the client visibility of progress.

Adopting the correct strategy is the mainstay of a successful claim. Systech draws on its wealth of experience to offer strategic guidance that is focused on the provable issues and to prepare documentation that is technically, legally and commercially accurate.

Claims are often complex and we are able to use our visualisations expertise to demonstrate the main issues pictorially to aid communication to key decision makers.
