A business solution is a combination of ideas used to help a company achieve its objectives. In virtually every case, a solution is provided to address the client’s specific business problem or other needs. Business solutions correct business problems.


The practice of investigating claims that are suspect by self insured employers, third party administrators, insurance companies, claims adjusters, and the like has proven to be a useful tool. Claims investigators play a key role in determining whether or not a claim is legitimate. Without claims investigators, self insured employers, insurance companies, and others might be forced to pay for fraudulent claims.


Special services encompass five major areas: asset search investigations, litigation support investigations, security consulting, theft investigations and covert camera installations. For the most part these are very time sensitive matters.
