Press Announcement: Depositit Supports the National Flood Forum

Depositit and the National Flood Forum Provide Home Owners and Businesses with Free Tool to Enhance Safety During Flooding

Depositit and the National Flood Forum are offering every home and business in the UK with a free tool to safeguard critical information and emergency numbers. Details will be fully encrypted and securely stored in the user's personal online account where they can be instantly accessed during a crisis.

London, UK October 3, 2012 - Depositit has today launched an offer with the National Flood Forum to offer to provide all homes and businesses throughout the UK with a free online safe to store critical and key information that might be needed during a flood. Over 5 million people live or work in a flood risk areas and the annual costs of flood damages in England and Wales are in the billions and increasing each year. The emotional and sentimental effect on lives cannot be measured, yet each year flooding continues and more lives are devastated.

What is more is that flooding occurs in every season, not just winter time and consequently being prepared is now a year round process for many who are still often taken by surprise when the floods hit.

The Association of British Insurers recommend that in order to be prepared for any flooding one of the things people should do is make sure that they have emergency telephone contact numbers for insurers, local authority and utility companies in a safe waterproof place.

Depositit, together with the National Flood Forum are offering all home owners and business with an online safe to ensure critical contact information is kept safe and available when needed.

The Depositit 'Business SAFE' service provides businesses with a secure and instantly accessible online account which they can use from anywhere in the world and login from any device. All insurance, emergency contact and other details can be found quickly to help during a crisis.

Depositit's consumer offering www.boxsolid.com provides the same secure solution for personal and home use.

National Flood Forum Chief Executive, Paul Cobbing comments:
"The trauma caused by flooding is well documented, and frequently lasts years. Likewise the economic impacts can be severe to both businesses and home owners, and being able to access key information in the event of a crisis to help manage the situation is crucial.

We are pleased to be partnering with Depositit and able to offer their Business SAFE and boxSOLID services free of charge to UK companies and residents who are at risk of flooding. The services are easy to use and ensures you have the details you need to hand when an emergency occurs."

Anthony Ryb, Director at Depositit comments:
"We've witnessed terrible extremes in weather over the past few years and wanted to help where we could. Our relationship with the National Flood Forum goes back many years with our background in supplying business continuity solutions and the NFF being at the forefront of supporting UK companies and home owners through flood crisis management. Flooding and related damage is set to continue each year, so whatever we can do by working together to help lessen the impact is helpful and linking up with like minded organisations is a critical show of solidarity in this area."
