Why PropertyEDGE™?

February 25, 2013

As you may have noticed, we’ve been spending a lot of time lately talking about some of the features of our new product, PropertyEDGE™, and how the information it provides can be used to help you in your insurance underwriting.  With the launch date fast approaching, we wanted to take a moment to tell you why we developed PropertyEDGE and what it means to us.

PropertyEDGE is a web-based product which uses GIS technology to provide insurance professionals with information on weather, land, natural hazards, fire protection, and demographics. It also has tools to measure elevation, area, and distance. All of these features are available for the State of Washington, and some are available regionally or nationwide. As a Washington-based company, our priority is to provide those working in our home state with as much useful information as we can. However, as we move forward we’ll be working on expanding PropertyEDGE to provide more of this information regionally and/or nationwide, because we recognize that our customers are not limited to working only in Washington. It is our goal to offer value and expertise to our customers no matter where they write risk, and we’re working hard to accomplish that goal.

The idea of PropertyEDGE first arose when we looked at the products we offer and asked the question, “What kind of information would give insurance agents and underwriters the tools to do their job more efficiently and accurately?”  Then we looked at the types of information we had available along with the information we thought we could acquire and set upon the task of creating a product that would be useful, convenient, and valuable to our customers. The concept behind PropertyEDGE is to expand insurance professionals’ toolbox without requiring that they spend time gathering information from all corners of the web for every risk they write: a one-stop resource for a broad range of information on an exact location. With PropertyEDGE, we believe we’ve accomplished precisely that.

We hope you find it a valuable addition to your toolbox!
