Streamlining the underwriting process

The Guardian program is designed to aid insurance professionals in streamlining the underwriting process by integrating precise, on-ground data into risk assessments. This improvement in risk evaluation accuracy is designed to facilitate more competitive and accurately priced policies, reduce claims losses, and enhance customer satisfaction. Ember Defense’s methodologies include, but are not limited to, IBHS’s “Wildfire Prepared” designation, Fair Plan’s AB38, and are customizable to fit underwriter specific criteria. Our white labeled deliverables offer a clear and accurate analysis so markets can offer policies that are not only fair but also reflective of the actual wildfire risks properties face, enhancing their portfolio's stability and profitability. Guardian serves as a critical tool in an insurer's arsenal.
