(October 27, 2016 – Toronto, ON) Risk Control Technologies Inc., the industry-leading provider of loss control software solutions for the insurance industry, today announced ICAT has successfully deployed its loss control management system to streamline loss control and field inspection operations. Headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado, ICAT is a highly specialized and disciplined underwriter of catastrophe insurance risk.
“Our loss control program is a fundamental aspect of our underwriting philosophy and process,” said Carie Ferdani, VP of Underwriting Operations and Initiatives for ICAT. “As a company committed to inspecting 100% of our book of business, a flexible and robust loss control solution is a must. Throughout our relationship with Risk Control Technologies, it became apparent that they not only have great technology, but a great team to back it up.”
ICAT leverages its unique loss control process to achieve a strategic advantage in the marketplace, using on-site inspections as a tool not only to help mitigate risk, but also to ensure the accuracy of data which is fed into its proprietary risk models. In 2015, ICAT performed more than 38,000 loss control inspections on insured risks, allowing its team to:
• Verify key risk characteristics
• Assist underwriters in making pricing and eligibility decisions
• Provide key input to the claims team for damage assessments
• Building relationships with clients through face-to-face interactions
By implementing a new inspection management software platform, ICAT is aiming to enhance workflow efficiency and enable more robust data-mining.
“ICAT truly is a unique company that brings a level of sophistication to the underwriting and loss control processes that really sets them apart from the market,” said Sean Banikin, Vice President of Risk Control Technologies, “working with their team to roll out the system was a real pleasure.”
As a highly flexible and configurable ‘off-the-shelf’ loss control management system used by an array of loss control focused insurers, the Risk Control Technologies platform integrates seamlessly with other ICAT core systems and functions.
