geospatial enterprise platform
for portfolio management

Empowering the entire insurance value chain through simplified integration of spatial data

Ascend enables carriers to leverage spatial data in their day-to-day insurance operations from underwriting and claims to CX and new product development. With over 35 partnerships and 2000+ attributes, Ascend incorporates satellite, drone, and aerial imagery as well as property characteristics and climate models directly into insurer workflows.

The Ascend solution is built upon 3 core pillars: Unparalleled access to an extensive spatial data marketplace, dynamic data fusion delivering real time fit-for-purpose data layers, and seamless integration into insurance processing ecosystems. 


Ascend brings all spatial data into one location.

One API for all Geospatial Data

Data coverage for the full policy lifecycle

Precisely assess risk, devise loss mitigation strategies, respond more accurately and swiftly to natural catastrophes, and improve NPS through stellar claims experiences.

Data Driven

Leverage the best of geospatial AI, imagery, flood, fire, and climate models directly in underwriting workflows. Ascend will automatically and dynamically pull from the best data sources in the world for each geography and product type.


Post CAT

Handle claims more quickly after a disaster using the best post catastrophe data including AI models leveraging satellite, drone, aerial, stratospheric balloon data. Ascend combines post-cat data with advanced geocoding to drive automatic loss calculations.

Portfolio Risk/
Loss Estimation

Reserving intelligently requires a continuous understanding before, during, and after an event for rapid assessment of total damage. Ascend calculates losses across full portfolios by dynamically leveraging the best geospatial data, models, and geocoders.


Be the organization customers look to in a time of crisis. From pre-event alerts to post claim handling speed, knowing which of your policy holders will be affected trough weather and catastrophe modeling allows customer success teams to ensure unique and valuable CX.


Ascend integrates the best geospatial data for P&C insurance workflows and translates it into actionable insights

Data integration
and normalization

Over 2,000 attributes are ingested and normalized to ensure our customers have the highest accuracy and availability of data.

and selection

Ascend validates and selects from across sources to ensure our customers have the right answers for their business needs.
