Collaborate Directly with Policyholders

Policyholders and adjusters collaborate on inventory submission, supplements and corrections, follow-up questions, and more within this intuitive, online platform that is available 24/7.
Quick Entry Tool
The XactContents Quick Entry tool allows for continuous adding of line items. You can also quickly add miscellaneous and contents general quote items (good, better, best). This Quick Entry interface increases your speed of entry by keeping the essential workflow tied to the keyboard. With Quick Entry, you can enter items and search at the same time. XactContents can search in the background while you continue working.
Integrated Internet Search
The integrated web search allows you to search multiple sources at once, including the XactContents database, the contents general quote items, and Internet sources such as Amazon.com, Google, Nextag, and many national retailers.
Import Existing Lists of Personal Property Items
Inventory lists can be imported from an Excel spreadsheet. This means the insured can fill out key information such as item make, model, description, age, estimated cost to replace, and so on. Using an inventory list provides an excellent way for a claim rep or estimator to build the large loss inventory quickly.
Easily Find the Right Item
Search by product manufacturer and the item's model number, brand name, or description. XactContents helps you immediately find the item you need. After finding the correct items, users can automatically generate an email with links for all vendor items included in the estimate and send it to the insured for review or for them to go and purchase the added items.
Accurate, Up-to-Date Prices
XactContents contains more than 10 million items, and the price list is updated no less than once a week. Prices come from more than 90 major national retailers.
Automatically Handle Discontinued Items
When XactContents finds an item that has been discontinued, it automatically shows you current items that are of like kind and quality. XactContents currently provides like-kind-and-quality replacements for nearly 227,000 items.
Automatically Calculate Depreciation
Each XactContents line item contains life-expectancy information. Calculate depreciation automatically by entering the item's age and use factor.
Contents Reference Search
Using our graphical search option, you can click on graphics for specific rooms in a home to find the items you need. After clicking the image, simply drill down and filter the list of results to the contents items you want added to your estimate.
Use the Payment Tracker to manage recoverable depreciation and track ACV and deferred payments.
Managing the personal property claim is not the only benefit to using XactContents. XactContents provides direct access to major retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada, from which replacement products can be directly ordered. From within XactContents, users can search a weekly updated database of more than 10 million personal property items from our affiliate network partners. When connected to the web, direct searching of products through several other major retail Internet sources also becomes available. Property replacement is as simple as clicking on the "purchase" link next to each item where orders are placed directly with each of these major retailers.
