Woods Whur announce strategic partnership with UK CRS

We are delighted to have agreed a strategic partnership with UK CRS, a leading Loss Prevention Company. It became apparent to me that we already have a number of mutual clients. As a result I met up with them to see whether there was potential in having a joint working relationship, to market to our existing client base and to add value to our long-standing relationships with our clients.

As a result of these discussions, the company has agreed to discounted rates for Woods Whur clients. They have developed some fantastic web and app based solutions. We are going to take over the legal representation side of their claims from their existing legal team and work towards a seamless instruction through their systems, to reduce cost and increase efficiency to clients.

The 3 key areas that they cover are :-

  • Civil Recovery
  • Employment Screening
  • Online Fraud Detection

Their experienced and dedicated team are supported by a state of the art technology infrastructure developed from years of experience in the credit scoring and civil recovery sectors. It is worthwhile having a look at their website: to get a steer on whom they are currently representing and how they focus on their services.

I have spoken at length to Jon O’Malley, who heads up the company in the UK, and have met the back of house team. We have a clear view of how their services could be beneficial to our client base as they share the same customer-focussed ethos as Woods Whur. Jon has highlighted the following aspects of their services:

Civil Recovery, the legal mechanism of recovering internal (staff) or external (consumer) damages and associated costs in relation to theft, fraud, criminal damage or simply salary overpayments.

  • Online solution
  • No upfront costs
  • Reduced commission rates
  • No win no fee structure

Market leading success rates have helped their clients achieve significant returns across a wide range of sectors.

Employment Screening, white-labelled online solution enhancing the employment process, reducing the potential bad hires and saving time and money .

  • Identity verification
  • Criminal record checks
  • Right-to-work
  • Adverse financial checks

Online Fraud Detection, working with the latest technology, databases to monitor illicit web based trading, due to the increased practice of selling stolen goods/stock online.

  • Monthly reports identifying suspects
  • Matching suspect to employee lists
  • Gathering evidence for successful Civil Recovery claims
  • Targeted and bespoke crave list (desirable goods/stock)

If this is of interest then Jon and I would be delighted to have the opportunity to come and explain how the Woods Whur CRS relationship has developed and how a discounted offer of their services could be made available to you.

Andy and I are very excited by this development and look forward to working with CRS in this joint venture.
