Travelers Announces New Risk Analyzer Dashboard for e-CARMA® Users at RIMS 201209:00 EDT Monday, April 16, 2012 PHILADELPHIA (Business Wire) -- To help business insurance customers find loss prevention opportunities and more efficiently analyze their loss experience, Travelers today announced a new dashboard within e-CARMA®, the company's risk management information suite of tools and services, called Risk Analyzer. Developed by Travelers National Accounts and Risk Management Information Services (RMIS), Risk Analyzer helps risk management professionals find and compare timely, comprehensive information about claim activity and loss trends. This newest dashboard, available to all e-CARMA users this month, reflects improved visualization and navigation, as well as additional functionality within the system. “Through the Risk Analyzer Dashboard, Travelers is offering a collaborative and consultative approach to monitor, manage and minimize an organization's total losses,” said Michael Strietelmeier, Vice President, RMIS at Travelers. “We are excited to bring this new technology to the industry.” In a single interactive dashboard, Risk Analyzer provides guided analysis designed to mirror how Travelers' Risk Control consultants perform risk assessments. Risk managers can utilize the dashboard to determine the most prevalent loss causes, injuries or ergonomic cases, enabling customers to easily manage and evaluate their company's loss experience. To better evaluate specific issues, professionals can drill down from summary information to individual claim details at many points during the analysis. Current and potential customers and independent agents and brokers attending the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) 2012 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Philadelphia this week have the opportunity to preview this technology. Demonstration activities will include benchmarking key casualty performance metrics in less than 30 seconds, and touchscreen exploration of cyber liability exposures and claim catastrophe management. The demonstration will take place at the Travelers Booth, #1129. The e-CARMA suite of products includes the functionality risk managers need to monitor and analyze performance results on a day-to-day basis. Functionality includes: claims management, safety analysis, Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) tracking, loss forecasting, loss/frequency rate analysis, key performance trending and risk management goal tracking. e-CARMA is a proven resource available to more than 15,000 customers and their agents and brokers. The easy-to-use, customizable system delivers intuitive functionality, which helps to manage an organization's total cost of risk. About TravelersThe Travelers Companies, Inc.
