Overcome Challenges with Geospatial Technologies

Optimise Risk Modelling

The cost of poor risk assessment practices can be catastrophic. Insurance underwriters need to know the precise location of properties and their proximity to hazardous incidents such as storms, floods, and bushfires.  

Geoscape trusted national location data facilitates decision-making down to the address level. Physical characteristics – such as building footprints & heights, ground elevation, estimated levels, roof material/type/shape, solar panels, swimming pools and tree overhang – combined with peril data provide powerful insights for risk analytics and algorithms and support more accurate risk modelling and informed pricing.

Risk Exposure & Policy Renewals

Visualise, understand and analyse risk exposure. 

Geoscape data is a key input in determining risk ratings. Attribution of the built environment drives insight to the changes in the insured properties to ensure policies are priced accurately and policy renewal is based on informed decisions. 

Insurance companies can also use these insights to understand the number of claims that can be expected and create contingency plans in advance.

Better Claim Management & Customer Experience

Based on built environment data create risk analysis systems, dashboards and reports to respond in real time to catastrophic events.  

Use these insights to advise customers of the risks associated with their property – allowing them to implement protective measures to safeguard their assets and reduce risk exposure for future claims. 

Also, get a better understanding of a policyholder’s surrounding environment, and process claims faster improving customer experience.
