Insurance Carriers


Verisk consults with insurers and all of their partners to create the expertise necessary to accomplish project goals.

At the onset of the partnership, our consultants will use interviews, ride-alongs, analytics, training, and more to gain understanding of pain points, processes, and goals. We then tune the consultation to achieve the successes that were set out at the project launch. Success criteria includes (but is not limited to):

  • Workflow optimisation
  • Workflow specific training
  • Data analytics on your estimating processes
  • Subject matter expert creation
  • Playbook/guideline development for consistent interactions with business partners
  • Product integration
  • Preference and profile configuration
  • Change management plans
