Utah Business Insurance Company Wins Award for “Data and Analytics Innovator of the Year” at Excellence in Insurance Innovation, Sponsored by Insurity

Insurity and Utah Business Insurance Company | November 10, 2022

Insurity, a leading provider of cloud-based software for insurance carriers, brokers, and MGAs, today announced that Utah Business Insurance Company (UBIC) is the recipient of the “Data and Analytics Innovator of the Year” award at Excellence in Insurance Innovation. The Excellence in Insurance Innovation awards ceremony took place in Las Vegas. It recognized the outstanding performances of P&C organizations in categories including exceptional policyholder service, digital transformation, and excellence in data and analytics. UBIC is a monoline workers’ compensation carrier that serves roofers, framers, and excavators, and it needed to be strategic in how it deployed resources in a traditionally high-risk sector. They effectively navigated these complexities using Insurity Predict’s real-time predictive insights and data consortium to process a significantly higher volume of submissions. “UBIC is a data-driven company, and we have fostered a culture around predictive modeling thanks to the ease of using Insurity Predict, We brought the Insurity Predict model into play just a few years ago, transforming how we do business. We went from running loss control on every risk to deploying our resources across submissions more intelligently. Instead of spending time servicing every account the same way, we now tailor these experiences for our policyholders based on the predictive risk scores.” -Tyler Nielsen, Chief Operating Officer at UBIC One of the ways UBIC innovated with this model was by extracting the data from the Insurity Predict system and integrating it with their business intelligence platforms. This way, everyone from the underwriters to loss control to customer service has access to this data in their reports. The sheer volume of data that insurance organizations have can overwhelm and make it difficult to write new business and quickly make the right underwriting decisions, Using the Insurity Predict Model, UBIC has made strides in leveraging predictive data and analytics to manage their risk portfolio better, giving them the ability to assess risk much more quickly and accurately over the long term,said Sylvester Mathis, Chief Insurance Officer at Insurity.
