With more than 20 years of experience providing advanced and intelligent weather data products and services to companies across a gamut of industries, Earth Networks knows a thing or two about severe weather. That is why insurance companies trust them to provide data and analytics that influence the ways they help clients.
Weather Data is Changing the Insurance Marketplace
A vast majority (79 percent, to be exact) of insurers believe that weather data and analytics will play a significant role in meeting P&C customers’ needs over the next several years. Additionally, almost half of insurance companies are planning to use weather-related data as a critical component of their analytics strategy. This is changing the way insurance agencies are servicing customers, including:
- Creating market-specific product and service offers
- Zoning in on marketing activities to lower-risk prospects
- Charging costs based on local weather patterns
- Reducing claims by alerting clients of potentially damaging oncoming weather and storms
- Accelerating claims validation for hazardous weather events
