LONDON, UK, 24 October 2019 — Verisk (Nasdaq:VRSK), a leading data analytics provider, today announced that leading UK insurer LV= General Insurance has renewed its use of the Xactimate® claims estimation tool and the real-time claims management solution XactAnalysis® to support its property claims for a further three years.
As part of this ongoing strategic relationship, Verisk and LV= GI have closely collaborated on several major projects to develop and deliver highly effective capabilities, including a purpose-built Building Contractor Network to enable LV= GI to manage its growing network of suppliers.
Under the Building Contractor Network initiative, Verisk provides LV= GI with advanced supply chain management and performance monitoring for a nationwide network of building suppliers, including a customised Schedule of Rates to ensure policyholders receive the highest level of service. Verisk played an integral role in onboarding specialist suppliers into the Building Contractor Network, providing training and support to establish supplier best practices. The Building Contractor Network delivers estimation and settlement transparency, configurable supplier management, and performance monitoring, which ultimately helps shorten claim life cycles.
“The capabilities delivered by our partnership with Verisk have been praised by employees, suppliers, and policyholders alike, so expanding this further was a natural decision,” says Martin Milliner, claims director of LV= GI. “The Verisk team has consistently demonstrated a first-class level of service, tailoring deployments to solve our business pain points, engaging with both our own team and external suppliers, and providing extensive training and highly responsive support.”
LV= GI is a long-standing Verisk customer, having used Verisk solutions since 2011. Verisk’s cloud-based Xactimate scoping tool provides intuitive estimation across multiple platforms and fully integrates into XactAnalysis, a single source for claims tracking, supplier management, and assessment.
“LV= GI’s renewed commitment is a testament to the excellence of the working relationship the Verisk client services team shares with LV= GI and the capabilities of our claims portfolio,” says Joe Pendle, managing director of Verisk Claims EU. “We look forward to further developing our strategic partnership and working closely together to add further value to LV= GI claims operations.”
