Deloitte Canada joins forces with Opta Information Intelligence to offer a property and casualty insurance solution for small businesses

Toronto, October 2, 2018 – Deloitte Canada is pleased to announce its strategic alliance with Opta Information Intelligence, a leading Canadian provider of residential and commercial structured risk information and property data.

“We are very excited to collaborate with Deloitte Canada to power property intelligence integrated within the Frank Insurance Solution”, states Greg McCutcheon, President of Opta Information Intelligence. “We have been assembling the most accurate and largest commercial property and casualty data set in Canada and have witnessed the benefits from an efficiency, loss cost reduction and overall marketing strategy for the industry”.

The solution, Frank Insurance, is an insurance platform that enables small businesses to understand their insurance needs and provide the right insurance solutions for their specific risks. As part of the joint effort, Deloitte will leverage Opta’s iClarify Commercial™ desktop solution.

“We are pleased to join forces with Opta Information Intelligence. Our collaboration will allow us to offer more accurate data solutions for insurance carriers,” said Daniel Shum, Partner, National Insurance Sector Leader at Deloitte. “The data from Opta Information Intelligence is harvested from proprietary sources closer to the “source of truth” and can update data quickly."

The Frank Insurance solution is supported by Deloitte Canada’s extensive research on small business insurance needs and preferences, published in the whitepaper titled, Insurance re-imagined: Unlocking the small business opportunity to help Canadian insurance carriers grow. This responds to a growing need in the market for coverage that helps small businesses understand their risks, simplifies the buying process and builds trust with owners. With Opta’s industry-leading risk information platform in both residential and commercial, Frank Insurance will be supported by a robust data set and deliver an industry-leading experience across discovery, purchasing, claims and servicing.
