PRESS RELEASE: Pictage Introduces Group-Rate Insurance Pricing for Professional Photographers
New Program Provides all Members with Access to Group-Rate Business Insurance
Torrance, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2011 -- Pictage, the software and services provider for professional photographers, today announced Pictage PROtect, a new program that provides all of its members with access to group-rate business insurance.
“Insurance is a frequent topic of frustration shared on our professional photographer forums and many photographers join associations just for business insurance,” says Jim Collins, CEO of Pictage. “We thought about it and realized that with a paying membership of well over 10,000, there was no reason we couldn’t negotiate group plans for our members to simplify this requirement. In the end, it’s logical—this is one more thing professionals need and one more thing we could logically and easily provide.”
Pictage PROtect is available to all Pictage and ShootQ members, regardless of membership level. The standard plan includes general liability coverage up to $3 million with no deductible, and equipment coverage up to $45,000 with a $500 deductible. The annual premium for the standard plan is $550. Higher levels of equipment coverage are available for $1 per $100 of additional equipment coverage. Optional coverage for cash and securities, rental cars, crime, and more is also available.
Pictage has partnered with Philadelphia Insurance Company—a nationally known A+ rated insurance company—to provide the insurance coverage, and with Arthur J. Gallagher & Co to provide broker services.
Pictage and ShootQ members can sign up for Pictage PROtect via the clients-only areas of http://www.pictage.com or http://www.shootq.com.
