Profiles in Risk: E458 – Going From Unstructured to Structured (and useful) Loss Runs; Scott Knowles, CEO & Co-Founder at Loss Scan

Loss Runs have forever been and continue to be a mess.

Underwriting requires them…

Agents and brokers order them…

They arrive at the underwriters, who look at them…

And they are completely unstructured pdfs that have no standard date sets, no standard terminology. Every company is generating them in their own way and its up to the evaluating underwriting team to make sense of them.

In this episode of Profiles in Risk, Tony discusses this topic with Scott Knowles, CEO of Loss Scan. Scott is no stranger to Profiles in Risk, having been interviewed way back in Episode 108! Scott was the founder of Modgic (recently acquired by Zywave) and is back at it with Loss Scan to solve the pesky but persistent problem with managing disparate and unstructured pdf files into structured and useful.
