Automate production-ready insurance pricing GAM/GLMs
Akur8 injects game-changing speed and accuracy to an insurer’s pricing process, allowing actuaries and pricing teams to build highly predictive models in record time, while maintaining full transparency, auditability and control over the models created.
Benefit from the efficiency of an end-to-end pricing solution
Akur8 supports pricing experts at every step of the pricing process, generating significant efficiency. From data processing and visualization to exporting final models, Akur8 provides a comprehensive modular approach to pricing built around three main modules:
1. Risk - to build technical models and pure premiums
2. Demand - to build behavioral conversion and retention models and measure price elasticity
3. Rate - to iterate on rate plans (commercial premiums) and run portfolio analyses
Deploy our modular SaaS solution across your pricing value chain
Compute your pure premiums harnessing the power of machine learning
Generate, select, adjust, enrich and aggregate your risk models to build pure premiums faster, leveraging machine learning to focus on tasks where your business expertise can add even more value.
Capture demand and price sensitivity based on behavioral and competitor data
Go one step further along the pricing sophistication journey by answering the question “How likely is this prospect to buy my insurance product if I offer them this price?” Improve your demand analysis by modeling propensity to buy and price elasticity separately, generating insightful and actionable models that can also leverage external competitor data and geographical analysis.
Build the best rate plan (commercial premiums) and make well-informed pricing decisions
Build your rate plan from data to production. Make the best and most informed pricing decisions by leveraging Risk and Demand modules and advanced reporting capabilities in your models.
