"The location of a portfolio and how a pending storm system, for example, may affect it is critical information," says Brian J. Smith, director of commercial solutions, GeoDecisions. "GIS and location analytics help insurance companies understand this information and apply it as a real competitive advantage."
Together, Esri and GeoDecisions are offering integrated solutions based on the ArcGIS platform that assist in catastrophe analysis, exposure modeling, and claims management. Insurance companies can use a map-based interface to see their up-to-date portfolios and the location of pending weather systems. This server-based solution helps them forecast the impact on their company's portfolio.
"We value our longstanding relationship with GeoDecisions, which has been built over several successful years of partnership," says Mark McCoy, insurance industry manager, Esri. "The solutions we are bringing to market together will help insurers make better decisions and help businesses and the community rebuild faster after an event."
Talk to staff from Esri and GeoDecisions at the PLRB Claims Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, March 18–19, 2013. For more information on how GIS and location analytics can help insurance companies around the world, visit esri.com/insurance.
