Insurance Case Study:

Foremost Insurance

The Challenge:


  • More than 20 years of research data for specialty policies like Mobile Homes, Motorcycles, Boats, etc.
  • Questionnaires changed throughout the years to reflect the marketplace
  • Surveys were conducted through various survey panel providers and vendors
  • Survey data was in different software formats, depending on who did the study
  • Only a SAS expert could access prior results, creating a bottleneck for decision makers

mTAB’s Solution:


mTAB’s survey analysis software is the ideal solution for Foremost Insurance to warehouse and analyze all of their survey data. The migration and standardization of 20 years of data from various vendors, including running quality checks of warehoused data against prior printed reports, was a seamless process. The migration did not require any involvement from Foremost’s IT department, and only took a few weeks to complete.

The Results:


  • Access to the software by the entire organization provided the ability to pull the reports and data they need
  • Cut ad-hoc response time from a couple of days to less than an hour
  • Surveys were conducted through various survey panel providers and vendors
  • Ease-of-use encourages more usage and in turn provides more key business insight
  • All surveys (past and present) can be accessed through one single software tool
  • Ability to trend ongoing research projects and combine/compare between each one
