Intermap Technologies, a global leader in 3D geospatial products and intelligence solutions, has announced that its U.S. insurance solution, InsitePro, has empowered customers to report excellent underwriting results after Tropical Storm Hilary. Despite the storm dropping a year’s worth of rain on Southern California in just three days, InsitePro’s robust risk selection helped deliver low claims totals.
The success of InsitePro during Tropical Storm Hilary highlights the importance of incorporating advances in technology and staying up to date with climate change. It is also indicative of the growing opportunities in the private flood insurance market, with less than 20% of properties in the U.S. currently covered by flood insurance.
InsitePro is helping insurers, including two of the nation’s top 10 property insurers, underwrite flood insurance profitably, said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. InsitePro has proven again that flood can be underwritten effectively and profitably anywhere in the country, including California.
One of Intermap’s clients, Sterling Surplus Underwriting, recently renewed and doubled its subscription to InsitePro due to high usage and accurate risk analysis outcomes. Many other U.S. clients have also seen very few insurance claims from recent storms, demonstrating the effectiveness of using InsitePro for risk selection and underwriting.
Another long-time client, Superior Flood, has been utilizing Intermap’s technological advances to refine its underwriting guidelines and has successfully detected and eliminated high-risk properties in areas exposed to catastrophic weather events. This has led to zero insurance claims due to Tropical Storm Hilary and minimal claims from other storms.
