Locational Data: The Eyes of the World for P&C Carriers

Carriers need to make decisions across their value chains with greater specificity, and locational data can help: Aite Group report

Boston, MA (Feb. 26, 2020) – Carriers are always searching for the silver bullet that will allow them to underwrite policies with more confidence, adjudicate claims without having to pay out one cent more than necessary, and prevent claims from ever having to be paid out. Locational data enables carriers to underwrite with more confidence, understand exactly what was damaged and where any forces that caused damage occurred, and identify locations where they’ve underwritten policies for assets that could be in danger. While it’s not that silver bullet, it comes close.

A new Aite Group report, Locational Data: The Eyes of the World for P&C Carriers, examines the types of locational data solutions that are available to address operational challenges carriers may face.

“Gathering locational data requires a technology that is scalable, quick, and relatively inexpensive compared to the alternative, such as receiving bad information through self-reported channels or deploying resources that could not possibly cover all the ground that would need to be covered,” explains Jay Sarzen, senior analyst at Aite Group.
