The goal of this project was to find and evaluate new data sources to be used by Quincy Mutual when evaluating and writing policies for commercial properties. First, we examined the workflow and business needs of Quincy Mutual. We then searched for public and private data sources that could be used to supplement current data collection. Furthermore, we evaluated the data for accuracy and attempted to build relationships with source providers. Following this, we developed methods for integrating the data into Quincy Mutual’s business flow. Finally, we offered recommendations and plans for streamlining this process. Our final deliverables were a source list, methodology for finding sources, a list of recommendations, and contacts to data providers.
