MIS and Fugro announce partnership

Geo data specialist Fugro has entered into an agreement with McKenzie Intelligence Services to provide the geospatial imagery and re/insurance data company with high-resolution aerial imagery recorded immediately after an incident.

Forbes McKenzie, chief executive and founder of MIS commented: “Our success has always been determined by our ability to provide customers with the most relevant, timely and holistic view of catastrophic events. We are constantly seeking the insights our clients need faster and with the most accurate detail possible and are delighted to be partnering with Fugro ahead of the start of the North Atlantic Hurricane Season. This agreement will enable us to enhance the real-time analysis we provide to the Lloyd’s and wider company marketplaces.”

Keith Owens, commercial director, Americas Remote Sensing/Mapping for Fugro, added: “The combination of Fugro’s Geo-Data to create a safe and liveable world with MIS’ actionable insights to make better decisions is a partnership of complementary expertise. It seems only natural for our two companies to work together in providing timely insights that help our clients operate efficiently, accurately and responsibly, particularly in the aftermath of catastrophic events.”
