Did you know that about 10% of all insurance payouts are flowing directly into the pockets of fraudsters ?

From opportunistic exaggerated claim statements to full-blown con networks, scams of all shapes and sizes are costing the insurance industry several hundred billion dollars every year!
What that means for you and me? More paperwork, longer processing, delayed payment, and ever-increasing premiums. Cue Shift Technology to the rescue!
Their SaaS solution combines tailored statistical algorithms with sectoral expertise in an innovative decision-making platform that is overhauling the way insurers process claims and, most importantly, detect fraud.

Headquartered in Paris, with satellite offices in Boston, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, London, Madrid, Zurich, Toronto and Sao Paulo their team consists of 260 of the brightest data scientists, researchers, and developers in the business.
