Charlee.ai, a provider of cloud-based artificial intelligence services for property/casualty insurers, and ClaimDeck, a provider of a software-as-a-service-based, process-driven litigation management platform, announced a partnership.

Charlee inspects all sources of data within a claim file to predict which claims will require litigation and attorney involvement. It then delivers claim-level insights on the claims predicted to require litigation and prioritizes those claims before sending via API integration to ClaimDeck for mitigation and management of the settlement.

ClaimDeck captures more than 500 categories of data that contribute to the predictive analytics effort and achieve double digit percentage reduction in legal and indemnity spend and average case life. This end-to-end process aims to help reduce claims cycle time, produce better settlement insights, and reduce overall claims expenses.
