FRISS will be working with Snapsheet to provide technology designed to enhance the claims process.

FRISS develops fraud and risk analytics for P/C insurers using artificial intelligence, and Snapsheet is an InsurTech that develops and markets software services for insurance carriers.

The companies say that their partnership will help bring to Snapsheet customers “seamless fraud protection” that’s built into their core system and everyday workflows.

The FRISS product lets carriers automatically detect fraudulent claims using AI and machine learning, expert knowledge rules, internal and external database checks, text analysis and network link analysis, the company said. Its FRISS Score instantly indicates the likelihood that a claim is fraudulent, and provides actionable insights non-technical staff can use to decide the next best actions to take.

A FRISS indication within Snapsheet uses these indicators: Green means go, encouraging the fastest possible processing of legitimate claims; yellow indicates a need to slow down and look both ways; while a red light, indicative of a high likelihood of fraud, should cause a carrier to stop and investigate before paying a claim.
