Additionally, the system required recording capacity as well in square feet or square meters. Riskonnect effectively expanded the traditional property module, consequently capturing property details, more than the insurable values and COPE, resulting in a global platform for property management.

The client was able to promptly identify data quality issues with the aid of exception reporting. This enabled the risk management department to receive alerts from automated workflows whenever new items were added.
