Understory is a property-level analytics platform which allows for efficiency optimizations around the claims process that create a large financial impact. We are using the principles of IoT to solve a big blindspot in the insurance industry with our hail monitoring networks. Hail claim losses have been climbing over the past 10 years and hail monitoring networks will be what delivers the ground-truth needed in the fight against questionable hail losses.

Our systems of distributed sensors take real data to provide a strong financial impact. Our technology allows companies to gather a much more accurate picture of the hazards each property is exposed to. We’re creating new kinds of data that can impact how insurers price products, understand and reduce risk, manage claims, and even connect with their policyholders.
