Utah-based Workers’ Compensation Insurer will leverage Valen’s InsureRight Platform to Bolster Risk Selection and Pricing

DENVER, CO – January 23, 2018 – Valen Analytics®, an Insurity company, and provider of proprietary data, analytics and predictive modeling for P/C insurers, today announced that workers’ compensation insurer, Utah Business Insurance Co. (UBIC), selected their InsureRight® Platform to modernize underwriting capabilities.  UBIC will utilize the Predict application of Valen’s platform to provide underwriters with increased visibility in risk selection and pricing, allowing them to make improved policy decisions with more efficiency.

“As a growing workers’ compensation company, it is imperative that UBIC be in the forefront of InsurTech,” said Ron Nielsen, CEO of UBIC. “We chose Valen as our partner because we believe Valen Analytics’ principles align with our own. It will help us to achieve profitable growth, and to avoid the pitfalls of traditional class underwriting.”

Valen’s predictive model, built on the InsureRight Platform, will enable the insurer to increase profitability, improve bind ratios, and target new business opportunities. The platform is powered by Valen’s contributory database, representing the most robust purpose-built data consortium for predictive analytics.

“UBIC selected Valen Analytics as our predictive model provider because of their industry experience, knowledge, and customer service,” said Tyler Nielsen, Vice President of Operations at UBIC. “Using our customized predictive model will further improve our underwriting process by helping UBIC to more quickly and accurately respond to our customers’ needs.”

“Workers’ Compensation remains a highly competitive line that requires insurers to innovate their underwriting processes to maintain and grow profitability,” said Dax Craig, CEO of Valen Analytics. “By providing analytically-driven tools to their underwriters, UBIC is in an excellent position to adequately price the policies that suit their risk appetite.”
