BMS Powers iVision with Esri's ArcGIS Platform

Better Risk Management through More Accurate Prediction and Preparation

February 10, 2015

Redlands, California—Esri announces that BMS, the US reinsurance brokering arm of Minova Insurance Group, has integrated the ArcGIS platform into its award-winning carrier solution, iVision.

iVision is based on specific input from BMS clients on how they want to use a spatial analytics platform in their own workflow. Assisted by Esri partner GeoDecisions, BMS created the solution to provide carriers with a way to reduce claims handling expenses, manage large loss exposures, and understand a policy's portfolio loss correlation before it is bound.

"As a broker, we aim to deliver exceptional service to clients," said Julie Serakos, executive vice president, Catastrophe Analytics Department, BMS. "Esri's ArcGIS platform has helped us achieve this aim: the provision of our analytics software, iVision, positions BMS as a market leader within the insurance industry."

BMS will share how they are applying Esri solutions to take control of disruptive events at RAA's Cat Risk Management 2015 in Orlando, Florida, February 10–12, 2015.
