Willis Group

When major flooding occurred in Central Europe, international insurance broker Willis used Esri’s ArcGIS Collector App to gain detailed, real-time insight into this devastating natural disaster. The company could then provide well-informed advice to its customers and strengthen its reputation as an expert on flood risk.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • ArcGIS Collector App allows more precise, location-specific data and imagery to be collected in the field.
  • Willis can make up-to-the-minute information from the disaster zone instantly accessible to analysts back in London.
  • The company gains better quality information, which enables it to improve its flood models and offer better advice to customers.


"The ArcGIS Collector App helped us make improvements to our flood model, allowing it to become seen as state-of-the-art. It helped to solidify our foothold in the industry as the preferred supplier for flood risk assessments."

Timothy Fewtrell, divisional director for catastrophe risk, Willis
