The Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland won the silver award in the ‘Best Insurance App’ category at the Appy Awards 2012.

The Society was nominated for its House Rebuilding Cost Calculator App, which enables homeowners to calculate their house rebuilding costs for insurance purposes and ensure that they do not either underinsure or over-insure their property.

Conor O’Donovan, Society Communications & Marketing Director, said:

“We were delighted to have been nominated for the Appy Awards 2012 given the fact that this was our first app, and we are thrilled to have won an award. The App itself has been very well received by the public and has proved to be a useful tool for them to potentially save money on their home insurance premiums, particularly in the current climate”.

The app is available to download by searching for ‘SCSI rebuild’ on the iPhone and Android App stores. An online calculator is also available on www.scsi.ie.
