PIR Conference
November 14, 2011

New weather tracking and analysis tools enable insurers to respond better -- to more intelligently manage their claims resources and more skillfully establish loss reserves, according to Kyle Beatty, AER VP of Business solutions, who spoke at the Property Insurance Report national conference.

In the general session, "Early Warning System: Tracking Weather To Improve Claims Handling", Beatty discussed new information tools that are enabling insurers to know about storms as they are forming and happening in real time.

Claims leaders can improve customer service by directing teams faster and more effectively -- deploying internal resources and tapping independent adjusters.  Insurers can more accurately establish loss reserves.
