Insurance is the last form of protection against financial catastrophe. But until now, consumers had no way of knowing if the company they were buying from was good about delivering on their promise to pay claims.

In this webinar, Dan Karr shares how big data and technology have combined to make understanding insurance reliable, accurate and easy. You'll learn how to find out how good any insurance company is for protecting and serving policyholders, and how to share that information with patrons!
