Claims Processing is Streamlined for Consumers and Insurers Thanks to Hosta A.I. and Verisk Solutions Integration

Business Wire - Tue Feb 7, 2023

Hosta A.I., an advanced solution for automated property assessments, today announced an integration with Verisk’s solutions to automate the end-to-end remote property assessment and estimation process.

Hosta and Verisk will promote the news of their new integration during Verisk Elevate 2023 in Salt Lake City, Utah, on February 7-8. The event gathers top insurance industry thought leaders, skilled professionals and expert product specialists to discuss market trends and learn about new industry innovations, such as this one.

Whenever a property claim is filed, a claims representative must go to the loss site to assess the damage and estimate the repair costs. Going onsite to evaluate the structure, collect detailed measurements, itemize all the materials, and document any damage or risks is time-consuming and costly. These in-person property assessments delay billions of dollars of work in the built-environment economy. With Hosta A.I., the policyholder captures just 4-6 images per room, and Hosta automatically generates an Xactimate Sketch and detects damage.

The Hosta A.I. patented technology complements Verisk’s cost estimation solutions. By integrating Hosta A.I.’s automated property assessment solution with Verisk’s leading-edge solutions, industry professionals have access to all the data they need about a loss from just a few photos uploaded by the policyholder. The integration provides policyholders with a more seamless claims process and can accelerate the insurance company approval process.

“Verisk and Hosta A.I. are committed to making claims processing more efficient for insurers and improving the claims experience for all stakeholders, including the policyholder,” said Aaron Brunko, senior vice president at Verisk Property Estimating Solutions. “Adding Hosta’s AI-powered automated assessments to our robust suite of solutions offers our customers an easy and convenient way to assess properties and expedite claim resolution.”

“We’re excited to attend Verisk Elevate 2023 to share the news of our integration with Verisk,” Henriette Fleischmann, COO of Hosta A.I. “Our patented image-capture technology can enable the acceleration of claims estimation and make it easier for both the insured and the adjuster to settle a claim without going onsite.”
