What makes us an InsurTech:

Farmers Edge risk management platform, FarmCommand®, is equipped with InsurTech tools for growers and insurance providers to rapidly collect and process field-centric data for planted acre verification, production reporting, pre-harvest estimates, and post-harvest reviews. Transparency and ease of use result in fast, efficient claims settlement and superior customer experience. These datasets and tools allow Farmers Edge to create specialty insurance products that fill gaps in the traditional indemnity focused crop insurance space. These new products are parametric based derivative products that create opportunities for immediate payments to growers upon the occurrence of a triggering event i.e. drought conditions.

InsurTech tools include Smart Claim—a platform powered by in-field sensors and artificial intelligence transforms data into insights to deliver simplified claims management, from prediction to detection to estimation and adjudication. Users also benefit from visibility into the current and predicted stages of crops, disease, and pests. Severe weather forecasting detects and warns users of hail, high winds, and floods. Automatic crop health change detection identifies, measures, and alerts users of the extent of damage from a desktop, smartphone, or tablet. These high-tech tools provide accurate and consistent information delivered on a timely basis and allow insurers to be proactive at key points during the claim’s life cycle.
