SAS® Fraud Framework for Insurance recognized by Strategy Meets Action (SMA)

CARY, NC  (25 Sep. 2012)  –  Business analytics leader SAS was recognized by leading insurance strategic advisory firm Strategy Meets Action (SMA) with its SMA Innovation in Action award for SAS® Fraud Framework for Insurance. This honor spotlights how new technologies can help modernize, optimize and innovate insurance practices.

"SAS, the winner in the IT solution provider category for SAS Fraud Framework for Insurance, provides a cutting-edge solution by combining key next-generation technologies to help insurers detect and prevent both opportunistic and organized claims fraud," said Karen Furtado, SMA Partner, during the award presentation.

Known for helping to prevent, detect and manage claims fraud across lines of business, SAS Fraud Framework for Insurance increases investigation efficiency and accuracy of special investigations units for leading insurers such as Allstate and CNA.

"Fraud is a growing challenge for insurance companies, especially organized fraud," said Stuart Rose, Global Insurance Marketing Manager at SAS. "This recognition validates SAS innovation in addressing this issue. SAS customers using such advanced technologies have higher detection rates and more accurate scoring of claims for suspicious activity. And they benefit greatly from flagging – and stopping – fraud rings sooner."
