Flood insurance services Previsico will be deploying its forecasting data on behalf of Loughborough University for the new ResilienceDirect mapping platform.
The ResilienceDirect solution is now launched by the Cabinet Office and Airbox Systems in the UK.
Its platform has been in development for two years and is capable of providing local government, emergency services, utilities and hospitals the ability to receive warnings of flood risk and plan for and brief against all types of resilience events in the UK.
Previsico claims this is a world first for an emergency planning system. Its data will give insurers an accessibility map in the case of flooding, enabling teams to more accurately see what has happened, and identify affected properties and help vulnerable people.
Previsico CEO Jonathan Jackson said, “There is no better way for emergency services to create contingency plans and to brief teams.
“The platform allows users to draw from an incredible range of government-supplied, authoritative data and mapping, including, uniquely, for surface water flooding. We are also proud to be able provide our data direct to insurers and brokers, to protect lives and livelihoods.”
Earlier in the month, Previsico announced it is looking to bring its flood insurance services to the US with the help of a £700,000 loan support from Innovate UK.
The InsurTech is also planning to raised a Series A round in 2021 to help with its growth ambitions.
