Weather affects sales and claims of insurance products

The weather can significantly impact the insurance industry. More frequent and severe weather events like floods, storms, hail, and wildfires can lead to more insurance claims. Insurers can use weather triggers across email, SMS and mobile push for risk & cost mitigation. Pre-emptive alerts sent to policyholders in advance of extreme weather events, reminding them to take precautions against weather-related damage, can be instrumental in reducing claims and payouts and increasing profitability.
