reinventing the business of insurance

JERSEY CITY, N.J. & CHENNAI, India–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intellect SEEC, the insurance software division of Intellect Design
Arena, has earned the prestigious 2017 SMA Innovation in Action Award
for Implementation for its product Intellect Risk Analyst.

The SMA Innovation in Action Awards are presented annually during the
SMA Summit to celebrate innovation in the insurance industry. This year,
they were held on Sept. 18 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston.

Risk Analyst
 is a machine learning and Big Data based risk
management platform that has been tailored for commercial insurance.
It is the most advanced underwriting risk assessment tool in the
industry. It applies multiple highly-advanced disciplines of artificial
intelligence, line-of-business-specific underwriting rules and risk
predictors to thousands of data sources and deep web searches. The
result is a highly intuitive and interactive dashboard that summarizes
everything an underwriter, analyst, actuary or agent needs to know about
a risk within minutes.

Risk Analyst has won two other esteemed industry awards in 2017 so far.
StarStone Insurance was named the 2017 Model Insurer of the Year by the
analyst firm Celent for its use of artificial intelligence (AI) through
Risk Analyst. The product is also a recent Gold Winner of the Golden
Bridge Awards.

“In 2014, we conceived Risk
 as a pioneering product when Big Data and AI were perceived
to be just a hype. SMA’s recognition of Risk Analyst is a big
endorsement from the industry,” said Pranav Pasricha, CEO,
. “The only way to holistically assess a risk is to
automatically assess the entire digital footprint of a business,
obtained from both structured and unstructured sources including new age
streaming sources like IoT. The industry is just beginning to realize
the significant impact this has on underwriting and loss ratio. From our
initial implementations, we can confidently say that we can increase
underwriting efficiencies by 70 percent and reduce COR by two to four
