Betterview overview

Betterview provides property insight and workflow tools for insurance companies to improve the customer experience by accelerating decisions and improving risk across the life cycle. Initially starting off as a drone-based property inspection service, the company launched a new risk management platform in 2018. The platform utilises machine learning, geospatial data and computer vision to offer insight and analysis on properties. Betterview's customers and partners include AIG, Nationwide and MunichRe.

Betterview took part in the 500 Startups accelerator in July 2015, less than a year after the company was founded.

In 2018, the startup introduced Property Profile, an AI-driven roof report delivered via satellite and aerial imagery, along with a series of other data points such as historical weather. The following year, they would assist Michigan-based property and casualty holding company, Conifer, by delivering property data and analytics to improve their commercial lines underwriting efforts.

In May 2019 Betterview secured $4.5m in Series A funding, in a round led by ManchesterStory Group and participation from Nationwide Ventures and EMC Insurance. The funding is intended for team growth.

Nationwide announced a three year commercial agreement with Betterview in November 2019. The agreement enables the insurance carrier to utilise Betterview's predictive roof analytics and risk management platform for commercial property renewals. Nationwide has previously invested in Betterview's early-stage funding rounds.

Betterview raised $7.5m in investment in June 2020, in a round led by ManchesterStory, with participation from Guidewire Software and existing investors.

In September 2020, American Capital Assurance Corp (AmCap Insurance) partnered with Betterview to enhance its commercial property claims experience and efficiency.
