Betterview, an insurtech startup which is quickly becoming the platform essential to every transaction around buildings and properties, today announced that it is releasing an upgraded version of its Betterview Accelerator for Guidewire PolicyCenter. The accelerator will bring the full capabilities of Betterview’s platform to Guidewire 10 and Guidewire Cloud customers via a downloadable app coming soon to the Guidewire Marketplace.
Betterview’s platform creates actionable data from imagery that empowers carriers to take relevant actions and work with their insureds and agents to mitigate risk. The Betterview Accelerator enables Guidewire users to access Betterview’s geospatial predictive analysis and data enrichment for buildings and locations during New Business, Policy Change and Renewal. It provides Guidewire customers with risk assessment of roofs and property characteristics that saves PolicyCenter users time by automating data input and aggregating and storing building and property data in one place.
With the Accelerator, underwriters use Betterview’s intelligence to decide whether to insure a risk and at what price – without having to leave the convenience of PolicyCenter. They can route files into the appropriate high-touch or no-touch underwriting workflow and make recommendations to the insured, like repairing a roof as a condition for policy issuance.
“With Betterview’s Accelerator, Guidewire customers can access – and act on – unique property data and imagery within the Guidewire PolicyCenter,” said David Lyman, Co-Founder & CEO, Betterview. “Connections Reimagined is a great opportunity to connect with Guidewire customers ready to improve their property underwriting process quickly, with measurable results.”
“Betterview’s upgraded integration will help our mutual clients stay competitive by providing their underwriters with aerial imagery and actionable roof and property data.” said Neil Betteridge, vice president, Strategy, Guidewire Software.
