Geosite fuses and streamlines geospatial imagery from drones, satellites, and remote sensors, as well as AI analytics and IoT devices into an intuitive software platform to provide actionable insights for underwriting new business segments, rapid disaster claims processing, fraud detection, and data-driven pricing.


Geosite is currently partnered with MS&AD, one of the world’s largest insurers, to accelerate claims settlements following large-scale natural catastrophes such as typhoons and torrential rains. Geosite’s software integrates aerial and satellite imagery to speed claims payouts so MS&AD’s customers can get back on their feet faster, all while reducing costs. Wardlaw will build on the company’s early successes to bring on additional partners and continue expanding Geosite’s footprint in the insurance industry.
