The Climate Corporation and NAU Country Insurance Company Form Platform Agreement
The Climate Corporation (Climate), a subsidiary of Bayer, has announced a platform agreement between the company’s Climate FieldView digital agriculture platform and NAU Country Insurance Company, a QBE Insurance Company. The new agreement between Climate and NAU Country enhances the digital reporting capabilities for farmers, according to company officials.
“Through our partnership with NAU Country, we can deliver value for farmers and their agents by simplifying the annual task of crop insurance reporting,” said Mark Young, chief technology officer for The Climate Corporation in a company news release. “We look forward to working with NAU Country to help bridge the gap between field data collection and reporting to create a more streamlined experience for our shared farmer customers.”
NAU Country Insurance Company is one of the largest federal crop insurance providers in the United States and is considered an industry leader in the digital mapping and precision ag data space, according to the company news release. The firms say the new collaboration between Climate and NAU Country will help mutual farmer customers and their insurance agents to move planting and harvest data electronically into the NAU Country Precision Farming system, for faster completion and delivery of planting and production reports.
“By enabling farmers to use their data to streamline operation reporting, we are saving them time and reducing errors in the reporting process. Ultimately, this will provide farmers and their agents a more simplified reporting experience, eliminating the need for manual data entry,” said Michael Deal, chief marketing technology officer at NAU Country Insurance Company in a company news release. “The opportunities for innovation of existing processes, as well as building out new ways to help farmers remain profitable in current market conditions is what makes our partnership with The Climate Corporation exciting.”
