It’s all about the data When you consider how risk and claims work, you realize they are all about data. Data drives smarter decisions about risk. Data enables faster, more accurate resolution when damage occurs. Data can even lead to proactive mitigation of damage as it unfolds. Because the availability and quality of data can have a significant impact on claims and risk, any technology that drives better and faster data capture and processing should, theoretically, lead to better risk management and claims resolution.

A-PLUS reporting tools allow quick choices based on data from various loss and coverage types. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) regulates full-detail reports, which offer up to seven years of claims activity on risks. The FCRA-regulated Coverage Verifier offers up to seven years of personal auto insurance history to assist in identifying current, lapsed, or suspended coverages, guiding critical underwriting and rating decisions, and reducing fraud. Roof Age uses Verisk's extensive industry expertise and advanced data science to estimate the age of a structure's roof by combining permit insights, assessor records, and various other data elements. As a result, roof Age enables insurers to rapidly evaluate the age of a structure's roof to provide roof year and actionable, numeric confidence ratings for use in underwriting and rating applications. Major Systems offers information on the health of a structure's major systems, including the building, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. These insights are important for insurers to find a balance between real risk exposure and exceptional customer service. By better knowing a property's history, Condition Score allows insurers to improve their underwriting approach. A property's score considers significant property change events such as maintenance, remodeling, and renovation activity, as well as related cost drivers. Thus, allowing insurers to segment and underwrite risks using a variable covering a property's whole history. With the inclusion of these Verisk accelerators, Majesco clients may better price risk for improved profitability, make recommendations on loss control/prevention during underwriting, and simplify the application and underwriting process.
