This latest version of InsitePro includes a new Underwriting Module that provides property insurance underwriters with a powerful means to evaluate individual locations for flood risk and other perils anywhere in the world.

For underwriters and insurance brokers working with properties in the United States, InsitePro v2.2 offers instant and easy access to the entire FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) library.
