  • 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.
