Xactware Provides Pre- and Poststorm Roof InSight

Aerial data helps property estimators document and process storm claims more effectively

 — May 7, 2013 — 

Xactware, a leading provider of technologies for the property insurance, remodeling, and restoration industries, has captured ultra-high-resolution aerial images of St. Louis to help insurance professionals more effectively document and process claims following recent tornadoes. This poststorm data is paired with high-resolution prestorm imagery and data on Xactware’s servers to create stunning before-and-after comparisons.

After tornadoes swept through parts of St. Louis, Xactware captured imagery of the area to give insurance carriers, adjusters, and contractors a view of structures before and after the storms, as well as to facilitate the damage validation process and streamline the claims-handling experience for policyholders.

Xactware’s massive library of ultra-high-resolution aerial images is a key component of Xactware’s new data offering, Roof InSightTM, which provides estimators with unprecedented, comprehensive data on roof structures. Roof InSight includes an Xactimate® native digital roof sketch, comprehensive roof data with all dimensions and slopes, and a set of high-quality aerial images.

 “We believe Xactware’s ultra-high-resolution aerial images are the best in the industry to date and will be an invaluable resource to estimators as they help policyholders recover from events such as the St. Louis tornadoes,” said Jeff Taylor, Xactware’s vice president of Property InSight. “In addition to providing a before-and-after view that will aid in the validation process, Roof InSight offers unparalleled roof data that enhances the repair-estimating process.”

“Never before has this quality of data been available in the property insurance industry,” said Magnus Olson, Xactware’s director of imagery services. “Even before setting foot on the job site, an estimator can have a completed roof sketch, measurement reports, photos, and everything else he or she needs to get the job done quickly and efficiently.”
