Kespry’s Drone-Based Aerial Intelligence Platform Rapidly and Safely Provides Complete Roofing with Accurate and Comprehensive Roof Damage Analytics
MENLO PARK, Calif. – Jan. 30, 2018 – Kespry, the leading aerial intelligence solution provider, today announced Complete Roofing, a major residential and roofing company serving Georgia and Tennessee, has selected the Kespry Aerial Intelligence platform to maximize efficiency and customer satisfaction. The Kespry drone-based solution enables Complete Roofing to benefit from rapid, comprehensive views of customers’ roofs to identify damage and provide an accurate analysis of their condition and recommend repair or replacement options.
“Roofing analysis can be done better. We can do it better, and Kespry makes that a reality,” said Chad Conley, Executive Vice President of Complete Roofing. “After our customers experience our process, they go ‘Wow, I had no idea there’s a company that can do that.’ I don’t know of anything that screams professionalism louder than when a roofing company uses the very best technology in the marketplace to help its customers.”
During traditional roofing sales visits, salespeople visit homeowners, climb onto their roofs for inspections, and manually review damage or issues. This method often proves inaccurate, sometimes leaving homeowners with more questions than answers. Homeowners are also sometimes uncomfortable having people climbing on their roof due to liability concerns.
“The Kespry system eliminates all of that,” said Conley. “We can come in and say, ‘I can increase your home’s property value. I can lower your insurance premiums. I can increase your roof’s warranty. And the first step is to find out what the condition of your roof is. It’s a free inspection. It only takes a few minutes, and I don’t even have to climb on your roof.’”
“We’re incredibly pleased at the success Complete Roofing is experiencing with the Kespry Aerial Intelligence platform,” said George Mathew, Chairman and CEO of Kespry. “Roofing is a prime example of an industry that dramatically benefits from Kespry’s detailed, rapidly-delivered cloud-based analytics. Our platform identifies roofing issues with incredible precision. It enables Complete Roofing to deliver the best, most transparent customer experience possible.”
After its initial customer meeting and inspection, the Complete Roofing team will create a recommendation based on the Kespry images and analytics, and return to the customer to present a detailed report. The report provides annotated images, offering a complete overview of the roof, including damage assessment across its total expanse. The Kespry drone, combined with the Kespry platform’s Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities, ensure all damage, including issues manual inspections often miss, are captured.
“Kespry’s hail damage detection capability is just phenomenal technology,” said Conley. “It provides a whole new level of annotation for us. We can see wind torn shingles or tabs that have come off. We can see problems that exist in corners or at the edges of steep or high slopes. We can then go into the Kespry Cloud, generate a very comprehensive report and our sales rep can advise the homeowner to file an insurance claim. Separating the sales role from the inspection role allows a sales rep to be twice as productive.”
Complete Roofing is enjoying an increase in attention both from new job seekers and customers as a result of its Kespry deployment.
“One of the key things that attracts new customers to Complete Roofing is our Kespry drone inspection,” said Conley. “They tell us ‘This is a roofing company that’s doing something innovative.’ Kespry is a force multiplier. Kespry’s analytics go far beyond any conventional drone system. It does ten things at once and they’re all awesome.”
