Frequently Asked Questions

How can the work Environics Analytics does enhance the work my existing teams do? keyboard_arrow_down

At Environics Analytics, we pride ourselves on our ability to collaborative and work with your internal and external partners. For many of our clients, our team does the work their internal teams don’t have the capacity or experience to complete. You’ll get access to a broad range of data scientists, mathematicians, statisticians, geographers, developers and business and marketing strategists who have industry experience and sector depth. With hundreds of years of cumulative experience, we're skilled in uncovering insights through segmentation, predictive modeling and site location intelligence. Our approach is extremely collaborative and you’ll find that we provide flexible solutions that scale easily to fit your needs.

Given I have a significant amount of first-party customer data, what is the value of enhancing our internal data with market data? keyboard_arrow_down

Many insurance companies have clean and accessible datasets on their current customers. However, this data is often limited to their current relationship with your organization and some pertinent demographic data collected as part of the application process. Augmenting your data with market data can help you create a more robust picture of who your customers are, who they could be and what their needs are.

We offer a wealth of market data available down to the zip code level. This can help inform acquisition strategies with people who are not yet your customers and provide insight on how to better attract them to your brand. For example, we can help you target millennials or the mass affluent population. See our databases

What databases are available for licensing? keyboard_arrow_down

We offer over 30 privacy-compliant databases. These databases help inform organizations on customer demographics, attitudes and lifestyle such as: financial behavior, neighborhood trends, channel preference, ethnicity and other demographic data not typically collected. See our databases

Tell me more about your financial databases. keyboard_arrow_down

We offer 8 financial databases including Claritas Insurance Clout and Claritas Insurance Product Profiles. Claritas Insurance CLOUT® is a database of current-year (CY) estimates and five-year (FY) projections for insurance products that include automobile, life, medical, residential, accidental death and dismemberment, disability and long-term care policies. Insurance companies can use the reports to evaluate a target area's perferred insurance type, term and vendor. Life insurance providers can look for trade area opportunities based on local usage rates of whole, universal or term life insurance. Automobile insurance providers can use Insurance CLOUT to understand why customers switch to new providers and develop strategies to retain their customers. 

Do your databases follow best practices around privacy compliance and consumer protection? keyboard_arrow_down

We take privacy, compliance, and data governance very seriously, and we are very proud of receiving favorable SSAE CSAE 3416 SOC1 Type II ,SOC2 Type II, and HIPAA/HITECT audit reports after rigorous, independent reviews of our internal security controls. The reports represent certification with programs such as CSAE 3416 (Canadian Standard on Assurance Engagements (CSAE) 3416), AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) and HIPAA-HITECH.

In addition, the source data used as inputs to our product development are 100 percent privacy compliant. Any personal information provided to us by clients is used solely for the purposes of their business and is safeguarded in client-specific, firewalled locations in secured data centers. We also ensure that our compliance policies for Canada and the U.S. are consistent with the E.U.'s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). See our databases

How can mobility data support sponsorship opportunities or inform brand activation events? keyboard_arrow_down

Mobility analytics can enhance what you know about who attends sporting events, music festivals, charity races, etc. It can be instrumental in determining if sponsorship initiatives and experiential events are aligned with your target market.
