Shift Technology, Elephant Insurance | December 15, 2020

Shift Technology, a provider of AI-native fraud detection and claims mechanization solutions for the global insurance industry, today announced Elephant Insurance selected the company to help improve fraud detection in the P&C insurer's claims process.

Notwithstanding its own evaluation of the Shift solution, Elephant was impressed with the technology's performance at two of the insurer's sister companies in Europe, L'olivier and Admiral Spanish Operation. It was shown that Shift's data scientists can effectively use historical claims data to build models exceptional to Elephant which will aid its agents in flagging potential fraud significantly earlier in their audit process. These capabilities represent important cost efficiencies that Elephant can pass on to customers as lower rates. "It is incredibly gratifying to work with insurers like Elephant who understand that the ability to spot potential fraud, as early as possible, has an incredibly beneficial impact on the claims process overall," explained Jeremy Jawish, CEO and co–founder, Shift Technology.
