Insurance Industry

Know what happened on the ground with revolutionary hail monitoring networks from Understory.

While hail losses continue to skyrocket, you need to keep your eyes on what’s happening on the ground. You need to know what impacted your customers, but you can’t do that with traditional radar-based solutions. Now, there’s a new tool you can use to determine weather-related damage at specific addresses and help you with insurance claims. Not by estimating what’s happening in the clouds, but by measuring what happened at the roof-level.

What makes it revolutionary?

Understory’s hyper-local weather monitoring networks record individual hailstone impacts, wind gusts and even rain drops. We pull this environmental data into actionable material like storm scorecards and hail reports. Your CAT teams will know what’s ahead of them and your claims adjusters will have better tools to move faster and more effectively. We even offer an API to build on top of your data and integrate it into your operations.

Build loyalty by offering an unparalleled customer experience

Imagine being able to communicate with each one of your customers when a weather event occurs. Frozen pipes a danger this weekend? Let them know that their thermostat should be set to 60 degrees as a precaution. Understory has a white-labeled weather and home safety app that allows you to communicate directly with your customers. When your homeowners use the Shine Hyper-local Weather app, you can easily help them know what to do to prevent potential property damage.
