New Mexico Mutual Bolsters Underwriting with Valen Platform

Staff Writer | September 28, 2016

Valen Analytics announces a new customer engagement with New Mexico Mutual, the state’s largest writer of workers’ compensation insurance. The carrier will utilize the Predict application of Valen’s InsureRight platform, enabling better underwriting performance and efficiency.

“As an analytically-driven organization, we are continually looking for ways to improve our underwriting performance and believe the InsureRight platform will assist our decision-making when it comes to pricing and risk decisions,” says Lou Volk, vice president and chief business offer for New Mexico Mutual. “Valen is a known leader in helping insurers combine predictive analytics with underwriting expertise, and we believe they are the right partner to help us achieve our goals for the continued benefit of our policyholders and agency partners.”

Valen’s custom-built predictive model for New Mexico Mutual is hosted on the InsureRight platform and powered by Valen’s contributory database, which represents the largest and most robust data consortium specifically built for predictive analytics.  By providing policy information at the point of decision, underwriters will not only have increased visibility into risks, but also improve their ability to respond to agent requests and service policyholders much faster.

"Predictive analytics are imperative to an underwriter’s toolkit, and we continually see more carriers recognize its importance for success,” says Dax Craig, CEO of Valen Analytics. “We applaud New Mexico Mutual’s commitment to agents and policyholders by taking a modern approach to real-time decision support from implementing advanced analytics.”
