You can use the Casualty Underwriting Advantage Report to help:

The Casualty Underwriting Advantage Report can serve as the beginning of an insurer’s automation journey by quickly verifying application information and underwriting risks.

The report is available through our ProMetrix® ordering platform and includes:

  • type of business
  • business registration and licenses
  • number of employees
  • estimated annual sales
  • credit history metrics
  • relative credit grading
  • OSHA
  • observed hazards
  • property details
  • risk potential of neighboring businesses
  • business firmographics
  • parent company data
  • recent news about the business you’re researching
  • proprietary 8-digit NAICS codes for improved classification

That includes characteristics and incidents that represent specific, tangible risks along with valuable estimates of management quality.

The data we supply is credible, accurate, complete, and not available from any other single source. You’ll make speedier quotes, adhere to your underwriting guidelines, process more applications, write more profitable business, and provide your customers with proper rates.
