Computers

Modern signage is far removed from the days of a tin of paint and ladder. Modern signs dictate that you are going to be using a bit of technology.

Modern signage is far removed from the days of a tin of paint and a ladder. Modern signs dictate that you are going to be using the latest software and technology to create them and this technology is part and parcel of your business.

The Signelite commercial combined policy covers all your computers and computer controlled equipment at your premises and where you need to use laptops or other digital equipment away from your premises these can be easily included too under our ‘all risks’ section.

So, what comes under the main computer section of the policy and how should this be calculated….?

Computers
Firstly the computers themselves – this is the total value to replace all of these ‘as new’

Server
Don’t forget the bigger box of tricks, the server – again this is the cost to replace ‘as new’.

Software & Operating systems
Now each computer would generally come with the operating system already included so you can forget that bit as it is already included in the total value of the machine.

However what you do need to include is the software you have installed. These are the graphics programs used to create your signs, software for accounting processes and any another other programs you have installed.

And ……don’t forget the Dongles!

Networking
The additional equipment needed to run the computers and complete the network such as routers, switches etc. These may seem trivial but they do surprisingly mount up cost wise.

Portable items, laptops and digital photographic equipment
These can be included in the main Computer section at premises as already discussed above however odds on you will need to use these away from your business premises, either on site or to keep in touch with the office if you are away.

If this is the case cover can be offered on an ‘all risks basis’ to cover these items anywhere in the UK instead of just at your business premises. It costs a bit more but the cover is obviously wider and gives you a greater flexibility.

The restriction to the UK can also be extended if you need cover in Europe or Worldwide so let us know.

Whatever your requirements we can talk you through it, what needs covering and how it can be covered.
