According to industry data, approximately 40% of all losses are roof related1.  Unfortunately, for many underwriters obtaining roof data and imagery requires gathering information from various sources.

Betterview’s Ready for Guidewire integration Accelerator with GuidewirePolicyCenter™ (full press release) solves this problem.  Underwriters can now easily request and access building and property data from within PolicyCenter two ways:

1)   Users can order a Property Profile report, which uses pre-captured aerial and satellite imagery, along with other data sources like historical weather, permit data, etc., to quickly obtain the characteristics and risks of a property and its roof.

2)   For high-risk locations, users can order drone inspections which include high-resolution imagery and a report that identifies risks and provides recommendations to mitigate losses.

GuideOne Insurance, a leading national insurer of churches, is a launch partner for the Betterview Accelerator for Guidewire.  Phil Cole, SVP and Chief Underwriting Officer, GuideOne Insurance noted:

“Betterview’s property data is helping our underwriters to identify roofs that are at risk of failing in the near future. This information allows us to work with our customers to get ahead of any problems before they can turn into a claim”.

Guidewire PolicyCenter™ works out-of-the-box as a stand-alone system or as part of Guidewire InsuranceSuite™ and can also be integrated with legacy systems and third-party applications.  For more information on the Betterview integration, or to request technical documentation, contact sales@betterview.net

Existing Betterview and Guidewire PolicyCenter™ customers can download the Betterview Accelerator from the Guidewire Marketplace.
