FRISS Platform: 100% focus on fraud, risk and compliance for P&C insurers

Written by Roger Peverelli and Reggy de Feniks - Founders The DIA Community on Jul 7, 2018

DIAmond winner of 2017 FRISS has 100% focus and dedication to fraud, risk and compliance for non-life insurance companies worldwide. The FRISS Platform combines industry knowledge, AI and machine learning techniques to detect and prevent fraud. Their ready-to-use products include, risk assessment: fraud evaluation of customers at point of underwriting & Claims fraud: automated fraud detection during claims process, making an objective estimation of the risks related to a claim. The SaaS platform generates the ‘FRISS Score’, which indicates the risk for each quotation, policy or claim, allowing insurers to increase the number of proven frauds and lower the loss ratio. It supports straight through processing (STP), fast track claims digitisation.
Friss has a unique global footprint with 130+ implementations in over 25 countries.

100% focus on the P&C industry

FRISS has a 100% focus on the P&C insurance industry and solves, amongst others, the following challenges:

  • detect more fraud via integrated and automated fraud detection in core processes
  • being able to reveal details of relations between claims (brokers, experts, insured, drivers, etc)
  • raise fraud awareness in the company and design processes to follow-up and monitor fraud
  • raise customer satisfaction by being able to faster process claims
  • raise profitability (lower combined ratio).

FRISS’ system is largely pre-built and ready-to-use, without-the-box indicators and scoring mechanism. The solution is easy to deploy integrate into any core system. Technical go live is possible within 2 weeks. Set-up and testing by running historical data through the system would typically take 2-3 months, in which the first risk indicators are delivered. These need to be finetuned. After go-live, FRISS has a value-cycle methodology to keep the scores as accurate as possible.

How does it work?
The FRISS Platform scores each policy application or claim with available client data, object data and/or risk data. 

The FRISS Score is a whitebox:

The platform architecture looks as follows:
