About Us

Who We Are

For 13 years, Transcynd Claim Partners has existed to buy back your most valuable resource for you—your time. When you can trust a partner to manage your claims effectively, you get back the time you need to handle internal aspects of your business.

Six years ago, our executives and our board set the vision to build Transcynd with the right people, the right technological approach, and a culture that mirrors the expectations of a carrier. Since then, our carrier competence—our empathy, understanding, and relatability to the needs of carriers—has allowed us to speak the language of carriers and "walk the walk" of high-quality, full-service insurance administration.

Our carrier competence is why we understand the demands of each claim. We’ve been there before. We've walked in the shoes of carriers—over 50% of our team has even held jobs with national carriers. Our carrier competence is what frees us to make promises we keep and build partnerships that last.

I just want to share my recent experience with - what started out as horrific -but is ending very peaceful. Our incident turned our world upside down. From the moment we met _______ our anxieties were calmed. He was with us every step of the way. Our house was unlivable and the devastation was deep. He kept such close contact, handled the needs of the house SO QUICKLY and was so friendly and accommodating that the process was smooth. We constantly felt as though he cared about us as people, not just about his job. Our family is so pleased.
