While solving complex geospatial and logistical problems in other industries, we saw that the insurance space has vast data deposits, meticulous processes, and specific pain-points. Yet, after speaking with several CXO’s, we discovered that there was not a comprehensive solution that appropriately empowered decision makers in insurance with today’s latest technologies. So, in 2014, we started to work closely with insurance companies and built a full-suite solution specifically for underwriting experts utilizing their procedural and mental assets in unison with our advanced data analysis & machine learning techniques.
