Through its investment in software and data, Farmsure is enhancing the experience for its underwriters and brokers,
What has been the biggest impact?
“Time savings. Twinn has saved our underwriters an enormous amount of time.” Speeding up the underwriting process, perhaps by between 2 and 5 minutes for every case, has allowed underwriters to write more risk. And we also have a far more realistic understanding of risk because the data is so detailed,” he continued.
Farmsure is providing a better broker experience as a result. “The traditional way of presenting farm insurance to insurers has always been sending in a written presentation, then waiting between 2 and 3 weeks for a response to come back,” said Mark. “While many providers now use portals, standard ones are generic and limiting. Essentially, they’re taking a commercial combined package policy and trying to adapt it to support a farm.”
Farmsure have turned this process on its head. “With our platform, brokers input the information into our portal, with flood and subsidence risk data coming in automatically. Brokers get everything back much faster. This blend of traditional underwriting and modern technology has cut out all that time.”
Thanks to its use of digital technology and climate risk data, Farmsure was a finalist in 2 categories at the 2023 Insurance Times Tech and Innovation Awards – Technology Innovation of the Year and Technology Partner of the Year.
