Thanks to CIS, we have quick access to all relevant weather-related claims information at any time and can analyze the damage quickly and reliably. Our customers thus receive faster feedback. The latter increases service quality and strengthens customer loyalty,” says Hermann-Josef Coenen, Head of Claims Department, Barmenia Insurance.
