In order to balance its geographic expansion and desire to continue providing quality service to its members, Ohio Mutual has been seeking digital tools to better understand real property risk without relying on physical inspection teams, according to the vendor statement. That search led the insurer to consider Betterview.

“Betterview had just the right combination of aerial imagery and workflow management tools that we were looking for,” comments Chad Combs, VP, personal lines underwriting, Ohio Mutual. “We especially admire how they have built their platform with user experience in mind. Some InsurTech vendors put their focus on the sheer quantity of data, not considering whether underwriters will be able to effectively use their tool. The Betterview platform was built by people with insurance experience, so they have created a system that solves the actual problems faced by insurance professionals without overly complicating existing workflows. Using the Betterview platform allows our underwriters to gain a more complete and actionable view of the property we insure.”

Better Experience, Lower Cost

“The folks at Ohio Mutual have earned a reputation for reliable coverage and quality service for more than a hundred years,” comments David Tobias, co-founder and COO, Betterview. “We are honored they have selected our platform to help them drive down expenses while continuing to provide the best possible experience for their agents and members.”
