NEEDHAM, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- Enservio, Inc. (www.enservio.com), the leading provider of contents inventory, valuation, and payment services for property insurers, today announced it achieved greater than 50 percent revenue growth since 2011. The company attributes its continued success to new software and service offerings that give insurers the ability to deliver a superior claims experience while driving customer loyalty.
"Our goal has always been to help insurers solve one of the biggest issues in property insurance -- quantifying and valuing what's inside a policyholder's home or business," said Jon McNeill, Enservio CEO. "This visibility into what's inside a property gives carriers a powerful advantage in right-pricing policies upfront, settling claims quickly and accurately, keeping customers happy, and lowering premiums and risk for the entire industry."
Highlights of 2013 included the introduction of the ContentsExpress Software as a Service application for adjusters, a U.S. patent that enables a more secure claim settlement on a debit card, a new payments feature called QuickStart, and the launch of the EnservioIQ consulting practice. Enservio also received several awards for its leadership and services, and formed a strategic partnership with the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) to assist in insurance fraud detection and prevention.
Enservio was awarded a US patent (#8,346,665) that marked the industry's first co-party activation debit card for insurance claims payments mimicking the security features of a check. The card requires both parties in a joint household to activate their cards individually in order for funds to be accessed, minimizing fraud. Already used to process over $300 million in transactions, the Enservio ReStore Payments solution covers all types of auto, property, liability and other claim settlements.
As an enhancement to the ReStore Payments platform, the company launched QuickStart, a self-service web portal where carriers and adjusters can go online to easily manage the set-up and provisioning of payments to claimants with minimal IT involvement. The solution significantly reduces the time required to deploy a payments system, streamlining the process for insurers and adjusters to get funds into the hands of claimants and settle quickly.
ContentsExpress, an innovative adjustment and online settlement application, was also introduced in 2013. ContentsExpress allows adjusters to receive, edit, and review contents claims. As an integrated portal, adjusters can collect and review insured inventories, receipts, and photos, adjust contents estimates, and issue contents settlement reports all for the purposes of driving an optimal settlement experience.
In July, the company rolled out EnservioIQ consulting services, a consulting practice that partners with insurers to improve the claims process with the goal of delivering a superior claims and settlement experience for policyholders that will help establish long-term loyalty and customer retention. Carriers also benefit by gaining additional visibility, process improvement, financial, and operational efficiencies from their claims processes.
Service on Site to the Rescue
During the worst storm system to strike the region since 2011, Enservio deployed its Service on Site (SOS) field inventory team to Moore, OK. The team worked closely with carriers and claimants to conduct onsite inventory and valuation services. Enservio rolled in a mobile RV office equipped with resources to help adjusters and insureds expedite their claims processing for quicker settlement. Less than a month later, the SOS team traveled to Black Forest, CO to work with insurers and homeowners affected by the wildfires.
Awards & Recognitions
Boston analyst firm Aite Group selected Enservio as one of 10 companies that represent "players who are transforming the industry and addressing significant portions of the overall opportunity." In its published report, Aite stated these innovative companies "will boost customer satisfaction through faster, easier, more accurate claims resolution and improved catastrophe claims response times; improving property loss valuation accuracy and lowering loss adjustment expenses."
CEO Jon McNeill received an award for "Most Admired CEO" from the Boston Business Journal and in April Enservio received a Pacesetters award in recognition for reporting a revenue growth rate of at least 70 percent since 2009. Most recently, Enservio was named by AM Best as a "Recommended Expert Service Provider."
Additional company highlights in 2013 included the appointment of Joel Collins as General Counsel, the promotion of Matt Gore to Chief Architect, and the promotion of Kathy Breslin to VP of Human Resources.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
