“Currently underwriters rely on internal claims data, Companies House and a lot of Googling to make judgement on risk. With increasing demand for better KYC, the need to record how decisions are arrived at, and pressure on underwriters to make the correct judgement first time this can be demanding and expensive. Doorda addresses this by offering access to auditable data with a 360 view on people, businesses and property via a single platform.”
