Central Insurance Companies Bolsters Underwriting Analytics in Workers’ Compensation

Leverages Full Breadth of Valen Analytics’ InsureRight Platform

 DENVER, CO – April 24, 2018 – Valen Analytics®, an Insurity company, and provider of proprietary data, analytics and predictive modeling for P/C insurers, today announced that the Central Insurance Companies (Central) will utilize Valen’s InsureRight® Platform for workers’ compensation to more accurately understand the health of its book of business and offer underwriters new information for writing risk.  Central is a leading property and casualty insurer with more than a billion dollars in assets and an A.M. Best “A” Rating.

Central will utilize both the Predict and Manage applications of the InsureRight Platform.

  • Predict empowers underwriters to make more informed decisions on risk selection and pricing, by generating actionable insights at the point of decision, significantly reducing time-to-quote on new and renewal policies.
  • Manage is a portfolio management analytics tool that uses real-time, leading performance indicators to create visual dashboards that enable insurance leaders to accurately forecast the impact of underwriting decisions and models in production.

“Central’s work with Valen Analytics supports our continued efforts to be a market leader for our independent agency partners for the workers’ compensation line of business,” says Jana Ringwald, VP of Commercial Underwriting at Central Insurance Companies. “We look forward to the InsureRight tool helping us develop confidence in our individual risk selection, improve our pricing, and ultimately grow our workers’ compensation line responsibly and profitably.”

Valen’s custom-built predictive model, hosted on the InsureRight Platform, provides Central the lightest IT solution on the market with an industry-leading data consortium of $67 billion in premium.

“By fully leveraging the InsureRight Platform, Central will gain access to forward-looking insights into how its book of business will perform,” said Kirstin Marr, President of Valen Analytics. “Central is improving its ability to adjust, optimize, and grow in an increasingly sophisticated competitive market.”
