iMapData Establishes Partnership with NICB to Fight Fraud

December 5, 2001

iMapData, a BrandPartners Group Inc. company, announced that it has established a partnership with the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) to create and market products to fight insurance fraud.

It also announced the availability of CATfraud, the first product introduced to the marketplace by this partnership.

The long-term vision of the NICB partnership is to create a variety of fee-for-service products for NICB members to help them more effectively prevent, detect and deter specific types of insurance fraud. The partnership’s introductory offering, CATfraud, is an interactive geographically based product that enables claims adjusters and fraud investigators to identify potential fraudulent catastrophe and weather-related claims.

CATfraud displays five categories of weather events (earthquake, flood, wind, tornado and hail) with daily updates indicating the previous day’s events.

Delivered to member company computers, CATfraud can show weather events at national, regional, city or street address levels and allows users to enter claim addresses to verify the presence of catastrophe or weather-related claims submitted to NICB member companies in the same area.
