Last month AXA XL officially announced the launch of its new digital ecosystem built to help clients manage the risks associated with construction projects. This new platform integrates construction technology from several partners, including Document Crunch™, to provide builders and contractors with powerful insights to help mitigate risks and improve jobsite performance.

The Construction Ecosystem is designed to be a one-stop-shop for AXA XL’s diverse group of construction clients. It provides access to a suite of integrated technology, helping construction companies manage risk holistically—from early planning to ribbon cutting. The ecosystem currently includes technology from the following partners:

  • Document Crunch™: AI platform to review and process construction contracts and insurance policies
  • Procore®: Cloud-based, all-in-one project management platform
  • Athenium Analytics: Site-specific weather risk analytics & industry benchmarking
  • Sedgwick: Claims benchmarking & analytics
  • Triax: Worker wearables & sensor technology
  • Jobsite predictive analytics & AI-enabled risk identification
  • Pillar Technologies: Environmental data sensors, collection & alerts
  • OnSiteIQ: Construction visual data capture & risk assessment
  • WINT (Water Intelligence): IoT platform using AI to detect & stop leaks at the source
  • SmartPM: Project Scheduling and Analytics Platform
  • Proxxi: Haptic-enabled wearable voltage sensor
  • OpenSpace: Automated 360 video jobsite capture and mapping

These partnerships with AXA XL not only help expand the reach of our construction risk analytics, but also provides key data to enhance partner technologies as well. In addition, the Document Crunch™ integration with Procore® provides customized solutions for contractors.

Gary Kaplan, the president of AXA XL’s North America Construction business, said:

That’s why we’re excited to be working with Document Crunch to give our clients access to a new AI solutions that helps them quickly and efficiently evaluate contract forms to assure solid protection.”

The Construction Ecosystem launches this month for select clients and is slated for wider release later this year.
