What's new in Touchstone?
Geospatial Engine: Unlock your business intelligence
You don’t have the time to analyze every property across dozens of parameters. Touchstone®’s geospatial engine creates deeper understanding, allowing you to quickly visualize at-risk areas and see how information is connected.
With Touchstone’s new geospatial engine, you can work with large and dynamic data sets with ease, analyze real-time data from outside sources, and generate maps more quickly to bring high performance geospatial analytics into your organization. Unlike standard GIS applications, the visualization capabilities in Touchstone's geospatial engine were engineered with the insurance industry in mind.
Touchstone's geospatial analytics have proven to be instrumental in leveraging Beach Re's services to our clients by adding valuable insight that has been cited in support of a favorable rating or upgrade.
Especially in the face of rising cat losses, the need for best-in-class cat risk management is paramount, and Touchstone has added true strategic value to the effort.

Fundamental to Touchstone’s value proposition is access to AIR’s ever-growing suite of peril models. New in 2017 is the industry’s first probabilistic flood model for Japan, as well as a major update to the Japan typhoon model. The latest release also features a major update to the U.S. earthquake model, and a new model for severe thunderstorms in Australia that—along with AIR’s earthquake, tropical cyclone, and bushfire models—provides the first truly comprehensive view of catastrophe risk for Australia
