To combat insurance fraud

Global Options Group, a provider of risk management services, has entered into a formal five year agreement to serve as a preferred provider of investigative services to BNSF Railway.

Under the terms of the agreement, Global Options will perform surveillance and background-related investigations to assist BNSF in exposing any case of potential liability claim fraud. Global Options will host a customised version of GlobalTrak which will include RapidData, the company’s new integrated solution that will allow BNSF direct access to public information databases nationwide.

Additionally, BNSF claims staff will have the ability to monitor cases from their desktops, with real-time access through GlobalTrak.

Frank Pinder, president of Fraud and SIU division, Global Options, said: We are pleased to be working with BNSF again, and have a long, successful history providing surveillance and investigative expertise to their claims department. I’m confident that our capable team and new RapidData solution will exceed their expectations and become a cost effective solution to the organisation.
