Esri and GeoDecisions to Offer Integrated Solutions
Mar 18, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Esri, a provider of location analytics and GIS software, and GeoDecisions, an Esri gold-level partner, have aligned to give insurance organizations performance optimization from the office to the field.
"The location of a portfolio and how a pending storm system, for example, may affect it is critical information," said Brian Smith, director of commercial solutions, GeoDecisions, in a release. "GIS and location analytics help insurance companies understand this information and apply it as a real competitive advantage."
Together, Esri and GeoDecisions are offering integrated solutions based on the ArcGIS platform that assist in catastrophe analysis, exposure modeling, and claims management. Insurance companies can use a map-based interface to see their up-to-date portfolios and the location of pending weather systems. This server-based solution helps them forecast the impact on their company's portfolio.
"We value our longstanding relationship with GeoDecisions, which has been built over several successful years of partnership," said Mark McCoy, insurance industry manager, Esri. "The solutions we are bringing to market together will help insurers make better decisions and help businesses and the community rebuild faster after an event."
Esri and GeoDecisions will participate at the PLRB Claims Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, March 18-19.
