RightIndem is a web-based, self-service insurance claims platform for multiple insurance verticals. Operating globally, with pilots in Automotive, Home and Marine insurance, the software platform helps improve productivity and reduce cost within insurers, whilst providing a much better user experience for end customers.
The customer-centric approach allows insurance customers to interact with their claim in their own time, the web app removes the insurance jargon and thus drastically improves claim cycle times and customer satisfaction. The platform’s backend service reduces the administration support needed to process a claim.
It helps claims handlers focus more on higher value jobs and brokers spend more time on new deals, minimizing the time spent on explanation processes and negotiation with applicants. This increases the productivity of handlers up to four times per day, and gives management good visibility of claims handling metrics – potentially saving an insurer £500 per claim..

At Spotlight Data we aim to shine a light on structured and unstructured data across organisations. We develop enterprise ready systems that make sense of data, and provide meaningful insights which allow you to make decisions.
The system is split into two components: a modern, user friendly web panel and a scalable pipeline that processes the files. Methods we use include Natural Language Processing, machine learning, and clustering – to provide insights into files and documents across large document corpuses, social media, and cloud services.
The system can scale to millions of files, and is designed to aid search, understanding, and improve decision making. As well as file based data we also gather and process streams of data from hardware devices and sensors.
Insights such as pattern recognition and anomalies can be found and visualised in meaningful ways ie. heat-maps onto an irregular 3D surface.
Our software is used by the Ministry of Defence, and recently we won the Innovate UK SBRI Machine Learning competition. We would like to work with more organisations who need to understand the data they hold, and want to expand the system’s capabilities in new and exciting ways.
We are interested in partnering with companies, organisations or startups who have novel ideas we can evolve and incorporate into the system. Areas of interest include audio, video and document classification algorithms.
