Valen Releases Predictive Analytics Tool

InsureRight aims to help workers' compensation carriers predict loss ratio and misclassification exposure on policies.

Denver-based Valen Technologies has released a predictive analytics system, InsureRight, which the company claims helps P&C underwriters make better risk and pricing decisions.

The cloud based, web-enabled system designed for workers’ compensation insurers includes a Risk Score and a Misclassification Score.

The Risk Score predicts a new or renewal policy’s prospective term loss ratio and provides a price indication that underwriters use to select and price policies more accurately, while the Misclassification Score predicts the percentage of misclassified exposure on a policy. Both models include data from more than 2 million policies.
