CAMBRIDGE, ON - Gore Mutual, Canada's oldest property and casualty insurer with over $500 million in premiums, announces their selection of the AI-powered FRISS platform as part of the company's large-scale transformation. FRISS will enable real-time fraud detection and prevention in both underwriting and claims, and will also support the company's special investigation efforts.

Gore Mutual is currently in the midst of an ambitious transformation program that will take the organization from a mid-size, regional carrier to a national-scale insurer underpinned by best-in-class technology and operating models in only a few short years.

Partnering with FRISS will allow Gore Mutual to further enhance their advanced anti-fraud capabilities. The real-time FRISS solution provides a unique combination of out-of-the-box risk and fraud indicators with powerful AI techniques such as predictive models, network analysis and text mining. These will enable Gore Mutual to take a firmer stance against insurance fraud while enabling more efficient underwriting and claims services for the insurer and its policyholders.

"As part of our transformation strategy, we're expanding and modernizing all of our technology as we continue to strengthen our operations and increase our digital capabilities and predictive analytics," said Neil Weir, Vice President of Claims at Gore Mutual. "FRISS is a global leader in fraud prevention software and their innovative platform will help us to quickly identify fraud risks throughout the policy cycle allowing us to better serve all of our customers."

"Canada has always been a beacon of potential for FRISS technology," said Jeroen Morrenhof, CEO and Co-founder of FRISS. "According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, 10 -15% of claims include fraudulent activity, which costs Canadians billions of dollars in added insurance premiums. Our team is delighted to start working with Gore Mutual as part of their transformation and we are excited to help them bolster their fraud prevention capabilities."

This partnership represents another step in FRISS' expansion in North America where they already serve many of the top Canadian insurers.
