Pitney Bowes Business Insight (PBBI), a provider of location and communication intelligence solutions, has announced the release of MapInfo Professional v. 10.0, the latest version of the company’s application for business mapping and analysis. MapInfo Professional provides property/casualty insurers with the ability to visualize and analyze information so insurers can make better business decisions in core functional areas such as underwriting, claims, and marketing.

MapInfo Professional 10.0 now includes a redesigned intuitive user interface, access to PostGIS, an open source database, dynamic map output capabilities, and a built-in support for layered PDF generation.

“More than 80 percent of corporate data today includes some location component, which means that being ‘location intelligent’ can be a huge competitive advantage for property/casualty carriers today,” says Bill Sinn, strategic industry and marketing director, Pitney Bowes Business Insight. “MapInfo Professional v. 10.0 is capable of geographically viewing data in a variety of insurance applications, such as claims processing, risk management, underwriting, and market analysis. It delivers business information across the enterprise, enabling executives to boost efficiencies, minimize risks, increase customer satisfaction, and maximize profitability.”
