Vertafore Unveils Its Newest Carrier Innovations Focused On Driving Operational Efficiencies and Enhancing Business Intelligence
Bothell, WA. – June 4, 2015 – Vertafore, the leading provider of software that transforms the business of insurance, today unveiled its newest carrier solution along with feature updates to its content management and workflow system, ImageRight® 6.0. Vertafore® Analytics provides carriers and their independent channel partners insight into the personal lines market. This capability enhances Vertafore’s commitment to providing industry leading solutions that meet the needs of carriers and help them connect to independent agencies and brokers. The rollout of Vertafore Analytics comes as a result of Vertafore’s technology partnership with Birst, the global leader in Cloud BI and Analytics, announced in March at NetVU15. Designed to better inform carriers and drive operational efficiencies, the new products and capabilities demonstrate Vertafore’s forward-thinking approach to working with carriers and driving synergies between carriers and agencies. Data driven insights and connectivity to agents and brokers are becoming table stakes for today’s modern insurance carriers which have significantly increased their investment in big data technologies from 5% in 2012 to 42% in 2014, according to research by Gartner and NAIC. As a result of those investments, carriers now have a thorough understanding of their own first-party data, but lack access to consumer data outside these in-house systems to help evaluate their market position. This need for better access to data is increasing the demand for even stronger partnerships between carriers and agencies. In fact, according to a recent Aite survey, 56% of agencies are currently partnering with carriers to leverage their predictive analytics capabilities and build more targeted prospect lists. “Carriers’ insight into the market has been limited to their own data for too long,” said Greg Wright, senior vice president of agency solutions at Vertafore. “This new offering will help them understand the broader market to make sound business decisions and increase their standing as a carrier of choice for agencies.” Vertafore’s new carrier products and updates, include: Vertafore Carrier Analytics The new Vertafore Carrier Analytics solution provides an untapped view of the personal lines market through advanced customer and industry data analytics and insights. The solution utilizes a rich data source, providing a best-in-class data platform that delivers structured personal lines data and new insights.

The platform also supports a greater volume of data than other comparative raters, providing the deepest, real time data insights available.
