New and updated flood hazard layers are critical for underwriting
Growing commercial insurance business in Europe with industry-leading clients
DENVER, CO – Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP) (OTCQX: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in geospatial content development and intelligence solutions, today announced the expansion of its European insurance geocoding services with Allianz Technology SE (“Allianz”).
Intermap’s contract with Allianz began in 2020, providing integrated geocoding services for its insurance underwriting services. Today, Allianz has extended its subscription for Intermap’s cloud-based risk solution to include additional parcel data geocoding and new fluvial (river) and pluvial (rainfall) flood hazard maps. The additional parcel data geocoding enables Allianz to convert a specific location or address to a set of coordinates with high precision so it can integrate any location with flood maps and produce accurate risk assessments. The Company’s precise flood hazard maps support Allianz in its underwriting processes with the same consistency and results across all operating entities throughout Europe.
Intermap continues to grow relationships with existing European insurance clients and expand offerings to new clients. The Company’s cloud-based subscriptions account for 72% of European revenue, which is recurring under multiyear agreements. Total European revenue has grown at a CAGR of 13% since 2019 when the cloud-based solutions were launched and now represents 20% of Intermap’s commercial revenue.
Intermap’s European operations group supplies insurance and reinsurance solutions to major national players. The Company’s European insurance products and services include data and software analytic applications for risk assessment, delivered as cloud-based subscriptions supporting flood, wildfire, and earthquake underwriting. Intermap’s reinsurance analytics services include bulk geocoding, portfolio analysis and natural catastrophe and probable maximum loss modeling.
“Intermap serves the world’s leading insurance companies with the powerful combination of cutting-edge flood mapping and seamlessly integrated software,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. “Clients such as Allianz operate across multiple countries and regions, requiring up-to-date and reliable data and analytics to perform consistent underwriting across all portfolios. Intermap’s data is continually updated to ensure customers are integrating the most current and accurate solutions directly into their workflows.”
