CM Regent sought a partner to serve as a single source of truth for property risk, according to a Betterview statement. Previously, the company spent time and resources utilizing multiple and often incompatible sources for the same information. After reviewing several vendors, the company found that Betterview provided the most accurate, relevant data to inform and accelerate underwriting decisions.

“Using Betterview saves time, which saves money,” says Brett Eater, VP and chief underwriting officer, CM Regent. “It’s a one-stop shop for all our property data and risk insights, whereas we used to work across five or six different systems. Consolidating this information allows our underwriters to rapidly prequalify potential customers and determine where additional resources are needed. It’s a significant boost to efficiency and data to profitably underwrite our property risks.”

Instant Access to Relevant Property Information

“CM Regent needed a way to cut through the noise and instantly access relevant property information, and that’s what we delivered,” comments Dave Tobias, co-founder and COO, Betterview. “Whether it’s AI-powered risk scores, condition detections, or data from our trusted partners, all the property intelligence they need is now housed in one place. We’re excited to save CM Regent time through automation, and ultimately help improve their expense ratio.”
