Chartis becomes a world leader in the science of safety with SAS

Chartis, a world-leading general insurance organization serving more
than 70 million clients in over 160 countries and jurisdictions, used
SAS Analytics to become more competitive globally, make better
decisions, and ultimately to increase profitability. Chartis' newly
constituted Science Team leveraged data in three specific areas:
executive liability insurance, catastrophe (CAT) modeling and
financial accounting. With SAS, Chartis improved profitability
through better pricing, expedited refined claims service programs,
and enhanced statutory and compliance reporting.

"Analyzing big data to make better business decisions has become a
critical objective for Chartis," said John Savage, Head of Science,
Global Casualty, at Chartis. "Our clients expect us to be a leader in
the science of safety, and SAS is enabling Chartis to fulfill that
mission."

Chartis' innovative use of CAT models helped them project hurricane
storm paths to accelerate the preparedness of claims adjusters.
Chartis built a patent-pending system called CERT to identify gaps in
field assistance and automate reports for claims adjusters.

In addition, Chartis built a complex SAS data warehouse and
reporting platform for CAT liability analysis. Through improved
budgeting and underwriting, Chartis increased its exposure reporting
accuracy and reduced reinsurance expenses.
