QBE rolls out Artesian platform

QBE European Operations has deployed Artesian Solutions’ client intelligence platform in a multi-year deal across the insurer’s UK underwriting division.

The platform will provide a central resource of externally-derived insight with historical and real-time analysis.

David Jones, director of underwriting, property at QBE said: “With the changing nature of risk during these uncertain times, the flexibility and configurability of Artesian’s Platform enables QBE to be proactive rather than reactive to changes in data for client assessment. Critically, Artesian gives us unique access to news media and unstructured data that was previously very difficult to assess.”

Andrew Yates, CEO of Artesian added: “We’re incredibly excited to continue our work with QBE as an innovator and leader in the insurance industry. As the first major insurer to partner with us to implement the full Artesian Platform, I am excited by the willingness of the leadership team to push boundaries. Artesian shares QBE’s vision for the ‘Underwriter of the Future’; one supercharged with immediate access to data and insight. Insurers, brokers and MGAs who are quickest to adopt new technologies will be the ones who emerge strongest from COVID-19, our partnership with QBE sets the benchmark for modern customer-first underwriting innovation.”
