Disasters such as Hurricanes Laura, Sally and Delta cause extensive property damage and business interruption. To navigate these issues, a property owner or insurance carrier must engage an experienced and integrated team from various fields – including insurance adjusters, risk managers, structural engineers, building science experts and data managers – who use digital tools like GRS Bridge, Esri ArcGIS Online and Microsoft Power BI.

In this webinar, Ramboll and Global Risk Solutions team up to share insights on effectively addressing issues arising from disasters and managing insurance claims, building assessments and data using innovative tools. Ramboll's Lawrence Malizzi, Jason Wells and Michael Kaniuga, with Global Risk Solutions' Suzanne Ziemann, discuss approaches to pre-disaster planning and post-disaster response activities to report and document damages, manage information and evaluate or submit claims to repair and restore properties to pre-storm conditions.
