hx is on a mission to build a best-of-breed tech ecosystem for the insurance market. Renew Connect offers seamless integrations for data insights, workflow management or pricing. This month we’re highlighting Addresscloud, whose detailed property data can be used to assess flood, fire or a whole host of other property related risk. This information is available directly in the Renew platform, reducing the tedious administrative work and errors which can be made by switching between platforms.
As we find ourselves falling into a second lockdown rhythm, it seems almost unnatural to think back on the times of packed events and conferences which formed a normal part of working life. However, it was at the InsTech London annual conference (taking part in that great British tradition of queueing for the bar) that hx first met Addresscloud. Both of our respective companies are committed to reducing unnecessary administrative work within the insurance industry. In the case of Addresscloud, they achieve this by bringing important geocoding data into one powerful search tool. Given our shared values, a collaboration for Renew Connect was inevitable.
Addresscloud’s geocoder has been built from the ground up using the latest fuzzy search technology to deliver high match rates at lightning-fast speeds and is trusted by leading insurers including RSA and Brit. Underwriters can choose to focus on one address, or build risk profiles which can be saved in Renew to reduce work later. Their technology combines high quality commercial and open datasets from major property listings and surveyors with an advanced geospatial algorithm to ‘fill the gaps’. As a further layer of security, they work with trusted names including JBA, BGS and Anchorpoint, combined with open datasets from the Environment Agency, Land Registry, Ordnance Survey and USGS to provide a detailed accurate risk assessment at address, building or site level.
“We have been very impressed with the Renew Connect platform and are excited to be able to offer our mutual customers access to high quality geocoding and a comprehensive set of property and perils data directly into the pricing workflow. Addresscloud and hx are both forward thinking agile organisations with deep insurance expertise and a proven track record of delivery to top tier insurers”

Hackathon, Renew Use Cases, Insurtech, Technology3 Mins
The first hackathon of 2021 saw us burn an arduino sensor, reverse engineer algorithms, automate breakout rooms and even weigh the benefits of unicorn animations for kanban boards. It was busy. Because we had so much fun, we wanted to share a roundup of the best bits of our first hackathon of the year.
Renew Connect, Renew Labs, Renew Use Cases2 Mins
Because our platform is built using open-source languages, the possibilities as to what you can do with it are endless. However, in insurance pricing there are some common things that our users want to build. Which is why we’ve put together Renew Labs. Housed on our platform, it’s filled with easy-to-follow guides for our customers so they can benefit from our experience in delivering models. The instructions enable anyone to make truly bespoke pricing models, without needing to reinvent the wheel each time. This forms part of our commitment to comprehensive training and ongoing support.
