Certified Restoration Drycleaning Network Implements Xactware Tools

 — March 20, 2007 — 

Xactimate users looking for specialty dry-cleaning and textile restoration services will have an easier time finding them because of a new agreement between Certified Restoration Drycleaning Network (CRDN) and Xactware. CRDN is implementing XactNet and Xactimate Online - Textile Restoration from Xactware.

CRDN will be a default option in the Xactimate referral assignment process, which allows any Xactimate user - insurance company or contractor - to send an electronic referral assignment to CRDN via XactNet. Adjusters who use Xactimate will have access to CRDN data for assignment tracking and management reports.

CRDN is an international network of textile professionals who specialize in insurance restoration laundry and dry-cleaning services for all types of loss, including fire, smoke, water, mold, and other contaminants. CRDN serves customers in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

"Collaborating with Xactware not only provides CRDN with the tools and resources needed to create the most accurate claims, but it will now make it much easier for adjusters and contractors to send CRDN textile restoration assignments directly through XactNet," says Wayne Wudyka, CEO and founder of CRDN.

Currently, CRDN utilizes its own internal system, RestorNet, to write and manage estimates. CRDN will now be able to merge its assignment workflow into XactNet, the property insurance industry's first and most reliable claims network, while still utilizing their internal processes in conjunction with Xactimate Online - Textile Restoration.

The Xactimate Online specialty provider workflow combines published pricing data with electronic claims assignments and is completely customizable to meet the needs of a variety of specialized service providers such as CRDN.

"CRDN has an impressive reputation for providing outstanding service to the property insurance industry in many countries throughout the world," said Jim Loveland, Xactware president and CEO. "We are pleased to provide them with the products and tools needed to streamline and enhance their already superb services."
