  • Windward

  • Windward

    Windward is in the business of analysis to help people understand maritime risk and therefore take actions to reduce it. Combining the traditional world of shipping with the new world of data, it helps marine insurers boost profitability by quantifying dynamic risk; and enables intelligence agencies, coastguards and law enforcement to protect their national interests by revealing potential threats.

    Windward continuously monitors and analyses what ships are doing, including: how they’re navigating; where they’re operating; when they’re operating; what they do in rough weather; and how they manoeuvre in ports. Our models use these vessel operating patterns and behavioural traits to predict the likelihood of the ship having an accident in the year ahead. Windward Insurance is integrated into proprietary technical pricing models, augmenting the underwriting decision process and improving profitability.

    Since its founding in 2010, Windward has raised $22.4m from investors, including Aleph, Horizons Ventures, former CIA Director David Petraeus, and former BP CEO Lord Browne of Madingley, who recently joined Windward’s Board of Directors. The company is headquartered in Tel-Aviv, with an office in London

  • Concirrus

  • Concirrus

    Concirrus’ software, Quest Marine, accesses and interprets large sets of data, such as vessel statistics, movements, localised weather, and machinery information and combines this with historical claims information to reveal the behaviours that correlate to claims. Through their analytics work with leading London and Global insurers, they have proven that behavioural data is a better indicator of risk than traditional demographics. With every customer, they’ve delivered insights and new rating factors that simply did not exist before allowing increased profits, the ability to write more business with or without claims history, and reduced administration costs.

    Summary

    RightIndem is a white label, self-service, SaaS insurance claims platform, that puts the customer at the heart of their claim, enabling them to dictate the pace of the process, whilst providing simple status updates. This enables faster claim resolution and improves claim centre productivity, enabling insurers to truly deliver excellent customer service.

    The Problem

    Insurance claims processes can be painful. Call centre systems and workflows dictate the claims journey, leaving customers frustrated and confused. Customers want an omni-channel experience in order to manage their claim on their terms, rather than being beholden to a handler’s telephone availability.

    The Rightindem Solution

    Rightindem’s insurance claims customer journey is one of the only software systems in insurance where the needs of the customer are considered before the needs of the workflow system.

    By developing the proposition with the customer at the centre, needless processes have been cut and customer satisfaction has soared as a result. We have applied best practice in customer service etiquette from other industries (e-commerce and FMCG) to the insurance industry, a sector that despite proliferating digital investment, is yet to harness true customer centricity and regularly struggles to delight customers due to archaic processes and mystifying language.
