Transforming the Commercial Insurance Landscape: Unlocking the Power of Verisk’s Rating-as-a-Service Platform

The commercial insurance industry faces several challenges when it comes to rating policies. Traditional rating processes have been complex and challenging, with limitations that can have a significant impact on profitability. In recent years, advances in technology have begun to revolutionize the way insurers operate, with a particular focus on simplifying processes and driving efficiency. One such technology is Verisk’s Rating-as-a-Service (RaaS) solution, which aims to make rating policies faster and more accurate than ever before. In this article, we will explore the benefits of RaaS and how it can help insurers succeed in a highly competitive market.

The problem with traditional commercial insurance rating is that historically, it has been a complex and challenging process for insurers. In order to rate a policy, insurers require a significant amount of information, typically including statistical codes and form attachment logic. This information has often been difficult to access and interpret, leading to slow and inefficient rating processes. Additionally, the IT infrastructure required to support traditional rating processes can be complex and costly, making it challenging for smaller insurers to compete with larger competitors.

How RaaS Solves Rating Challenges

Verisk’s RaaS solution revolutionizes the commercial insurance rating process by providing insurers with easy access to the information they need to rate policies. Unlike traditional rating processes, RaaS enables insurers to rate policies in real-time without significant investment in IT infrastructure. This means that insurers can quickly and easily access the information they need to rate a policy, including statistical codes and form attachment logic.

Benefits of RaaS

There are a range of benefits to Verisk’s RaaS solution for commercial insurers. Firstly, RaaS is incredibly fast and efficient, allowing insurers to rate policies in real-time without waiting for the necessary information to be processed. This speeds up the time to market and reduces the overall costs of rating policies. Additionally, RaaS offers simplified API delivery, bypassing the need for complex IT infrastructure and reducing implementation costs for insurers.

Another key benefit of RaaS is its ability to automatically update changes to rating content. This ensures that insurers always have the latest information required to rate a policy, without needing to manually update their systems. This not only improves accuracy but also reduces the risk of errors and inconsistencies in the rating process.


Verisk’s Rating-as-a-Service (RaaS) solution is a game-changer for the commercial insurance industry. By simplifying the rating process and reducing the costs associated with IT infrastructure, RaaS enables insurers to be more competitive in a crowded market. Its real-time rating capability, combined with automatic updates and simplified API delivery, makes rating policies faster, easier, and more accurate than ever before.
