In an increasingly competitive insurance market with tight profit margins, Nearmap is helping insurers understand risk at a property level, mitigate the impacts of climate change, and deliver better service to policyholders.

To survive and succeed in today’s disaster-challenged world, insurers need to constantly navigate business-critical decisions to maintain profitable growth. Advanced technology – Insurtec – is helping insurers respond more quickly and more effectively, through current, verified data at a property level.
But the challenge has always been how to embed these mega-sized, multi-source datasets into internal insurance systems without stalling processes or compromising customer service.
The data available today is unprecedented, and the ‘status quo’ way of working doesn’t cut it when customers demand personalised, seamless experiences and flexible coverage options.

Global insurance companies are moving from “repair and replace” to a “predict and prevent” mindset as assessors, underwriters, adjusters and inspectors rely on reliable data. 
While Nearmap has been providing insurers with frequently updated high-resolution aerial imagery and AI data for more than 15 years, our capacity recently expanded by combining forces with Betterview
Now, with the added capabilities of data analytics, AI risk modelling scores, and improved catastrophe response through greater data awareness, Nearmap provides a transformative single-source insurance location intelligence solution.

Make fast, accurate policy decisions

Working on an integrated SaaS-based Insurtec platform with Nearmap, insurers can access pre-processed property insights workbench for underwriting, claims, inspections and assessments – for actionable intelligence on the end-to-end policy lifecycle from first notice of loss (FNOL) to closing a claim. 

Automate processes to cut costs

Our Flagging feature enables straight-through processing of low-risk policies, so insurers can dedicate time to higher-risk policies. The ability to automatically detect changes over time streamlines renewal decisions and eliminates or minimises the need for physical inspections.
