Force uses artificial intelligence and advanced data science to identify suspicious actions which may indicate an attempt to defraud insurers. In addition, the technology can also identify the often-hidden links between seemingly unassociated individuals or networks of individuals. This insight into fraud networks, when combined with the insurer’s own data and that from third-party sources, is incredibly useful when applied to the objective of spotting the potential for fraud.
“For insurers like 1ST CENTRAL, which place incredible value on delivering an exemplary customer experience, stopping fraud is of primary importance,” explained Jeremy Jawish, CEO and co–founder, Shift Technology. “Identifying fraud within the claims process, and not passing those costs along to honest policyholders is one way to keep loyal customers. Mitigating the risk upfront, and not writing policies for bad actors to begin with is another.”
