100% Real-Time Compliance in minutes? Here’s How.

Did you know that, on average, 4 out of 10 contractors do not meet the insurance requirements for their contracts? That’s 40% of contractors transferring risk and liability to their clients.  That’s no bueno.

The main reason for this is the fact that there hasn’t been a good way to keep constant track of whether a contractor is in compliance or not. Trying to get all your contractors to update their compliance information can feel like a long slog of menial tasks, taking away time and energy from other important responsibilities and projects.

For two years now, Bunker has been removing insurance as a barrier to work by embedding it into the contracting process. We have created a platform that automates custom requirements and provides real-time compliance status of contractors, vendors, and suppliers for our members.

While we have a platform with all the bells and whistles you would need to have 100% real-time compliance, we know that getting an HR department to add another dashboard/login is a tough sell at best.

That’s why Bunker decided to share the love and of real-time compliance by creating an API.

In laymen’s terms, an API is a way for different websites and online services to communicate with each other, improving the experience of the end user, which in this case is you.

You’re probably thinking, “That’s great and all, but I don’t know anything about APIs or integrations. This sounds like it will take lots of time, never mind that I’m not technical enough to understand it.” Fear not for, at Bunker, we hear you. This is why Bunker used Zapier to create “Zaps” that will have you up and running with real-time compliance in 10 minutes or less.

Here are four “Zaps” for different platforms which, besides protecting you from any risks and liability of non-compliant contractors, can save you up to 6 hours A WEEK in onboard coordination. Not bad for a 10 minute investment, don’t you think?

Even with thousands of independent workers on their payroll, many onboarding coordinators rely on spreadsheets to track compliance.  From sending the initial requirements email to receiving and confirming proof of insurance to emailing interested parties about a contractor’s compliance, the process can take weeks and requires a significant amount of attention. Why not allow Bunker’s integration to sync our powerful compliance platform with your trusted spreadsheet?  Let us send requirement via our platform and we’ll automatically update your spreadsheet with compliance status. We can even let you know where in the buying process the contractor is at the moment. All this is in the amount of time it takes you to read a certificate of insurance.
