MB-International recognises Europa Technologies with Global Innovation Award

(PresseBox) (Karlsruhe, ) Europa Technologies has been recognised with the Global Innovation Award from leading geodata supplier MB-International. The award recognises the innovation shown in the redevelopment of the Global CRESTA Plus product to meet the latest CRESTA standard, as developed with significant effort by the CRESTA Secretariat.

The CRESTA standard defines a global zoning system used by insurers and reinsurers for modelling and risk management. The latest iteration of the standard uses postcode boundaries as the primary building blocks for the CRESTA zones, a change from the previous approach. Europa Technologies selected postcode boundary data from MB-International in order to build the new CRESTA HiRes and LowRes zones for the popular Global CRESTA Plus product.

Ray Roberts-York, MB-International's managing director, says: "Sincere congratulations to Warren Wick and his team at Europa Technologies on winning this award. The award recognizes their dedication to innovate and create products that are produced to the highest quality standards."

Europa Technologies' founder and director Warren Vick, adds: "We are delighted to have received this award from MB-International in recognition of our innovation in CRESTA product development for the re/insurance sector. We have worked meticulously to deliver a product that is both highly accurate and easy to use. With this in mind, we are proud to offer the data in product form, and also through our renowned viaEuropa service."

Europa Technologies will be showcasing Global CRESTA Plus at booth #718 in the GIS Solutions EXPO at the Esri International User Conference, San Diego Convention Center, July 21-23.
