omni:us, a Berlin-based provider of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for cognitive claims handling, has announced a partnership with Rokk3r, a Miami-based global technology innovation and consulting company, to support omni:us’s entrance into the Latin American insurance market.
In 2019, Berlin-based omni:us began building a presence in the U.S. and Canada with the appointment of Rupin Mago as VP North America. The company announced in mid-March that it had raised an additional $13 million to support its North American expansion, bringing its total funding to $33 million.
omni:us has articulated a vision to transform the global insurance industry by deploying AI in a hybrid approach to claims, complementing adjusters’ expertise and equipping them with deep data-driven customer insights while speeding up processes and improving efficiency with automation.
The company says its partnership with Rokk3r is designed to enable omni:us to roll out its AI-driven services to insurance companies in Latin America. By combining forces, the companies say they will help insurers with:
- Enabling clean data at the start of the claims process by automating document intake
- Reducing manual efforts related to data intense tasks
- Empowering core business with decision support and insights
“We have been very impressed by Rokk3r’s eco-system, which combines human and machine intelligence systems to enable companies to quickly build size and scale,” comments omni:us’s Mago. “We value the agility and entrepreneurial flair of Rokk3r, and we are convinced it will help omni:us to build scale as we enter the Latin American insurance market, as well as accelerating our planned growth in North America.”
“We believe omni:us is on a class of its own with regards to their technology as well as with the space in which their products add value to our industry,” comments Hilario Itriago, Managing Director, Rokk3r Insurtech. “Claims is the single biggest savings contributor to an insurance company P&L, so the opportunities are worth pursuing.”
