Kespry now automates roof dimensional analysis to Xactimate® estimating application on mobile and desktops, delivering greater flexibility to adjustors
MENLO PARK, Calif. – October 2, 2018 – Kespry today announced new capabilities as part of its drone-enabled roof inspection solution to further support the rapid and cost-effective resolution of residential roof claims. New capabilities include the automatic creation of roof dimension data files compatible with Xactimate® to support more rapid repair estimation. In addition, enhancements to the Kespry iPad inspection app now enable the full power of the Kespry cloud to be utilized onsite within minutes of a drone inspection flight.
“With the need to resolve claims faster and more cost-effectively, our large insurance carrier customers asked Kespry to seamlessly integrate with their entire claims workflow,” said George Mathew, CEO, and Chairman, Kespry. “Until now, the estimating step of the workflow has been disconnected and closed to next-gen aerial intelligence. With this release, we’re dramatically reducing the time and cost required to get accurate roof dimensions into Xactimate®, while further supporting our clients’ efforts to resolve roof damage claims onsite and in under an hour.”
Insurance carriers spend millions of dollars each year on third-party roof reports so they can plug data into their Xactimate® estimating software, sometimes waiting days to receive the correct data. Working with several of top-10 residential insurance carriers, Kespry developed the ability to pass its highly-accurate, automated dimensional analysis from a drone inspection into Xactimate®. This removes the manual step of inserting dimensions from a potentially out-of-date roof report, enabling an adjustor to resolve a claim faster and at a lower cost.
Kespry has further enhanced its ability to support residential roof claims resolution in less than an hour by providing the full range of inspection and analysis capabilities in its iPad application. These were previously exclusively available in its cloud application. Now, Kespry offers an even richer set of tools to enable adjustors to resolve claims onsite, in less than an hour. Additionally, this provides the flexibility for carriers to support desk-based adjusting or field adjusting models using Kespry with no difference in workflow or capabilities.
Kespry will highlight its residential and commercial roof inspection capabilities and customer successes at InsureTech Connect, October 1-3 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in booth #710.
