Verisk (Jersey City, N.J.), a global data analytics and technology provider, has acquired Rocket Enterprise Solutions GmbH, a Berlin-based InsurTech provider in the property claims sector. The acquisition, which follows a strategic investment by Verisk in Rocket in 2022, will further Verisk’s expansion in Europe and support the company’s goal of helping insurers and claims service providers leverage more holistic data and technology tools to enhance the claims experience.

Hanno Kahmann, CEO, Rocket.

Founded in 2015, Rocket Enterprise Solutions GmbH  has grown rapidly to become a market leader, according to a Verisk statement. The vendor says Rocket’s property claims and underwriting technology has been widely adopted by many of the largest insurers and service providers across Germany and Austria. Its portfolio of property claims and underwriting solutions include Rocketform, for claims inspection, documentation and calculation, and Rocket Risk, which digitizes the risk inspection and assessment process, resulting in greater operational efficiency and enabling better quality underwriting decisions. The suite streamlines the claims and underwriting processes with the aim of accelerating insurers’ efficiency and profitability.

“Our work with the Verisk team has allowed us to further develop Rocket’s core technology platform in preparation for international expansion,” comments Hanno Kahmann, CEO, Rocket. “Joining Verisk was a natural next step to support property claims and underwriting workflows for the global insurance marketplace.”

The acquisition expands the company’s footprint in Germany, which includes Actineo, a provider of solutions for the digitalisation and medical assessment of bodily injury claims, and Krug, a motor claims solutions provider. 

Supporting Digital Transformation Journeys

“Throughout our work together, we’ve seen enormous potential in Rocket’s ability to support clients’ digital transformation journeys,” comments  Samer Abou-Jaoudé, Verisk Claims Solutions Managing Director, Continental Europe. “Rocket’s offerings and the team’s expertise are perfectly suited to enhance the digitalisation the industry needs to evolve.”
