LOS ANGELES, Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DropIn, Inc. has launched (in exclusive beta) on-demand live video drone deployment for insurers. Unique to DropIn, the stream features two-way audio, allowing the adjuster to direct the drone pilot to the exact area they'd like to cover, placing them in the driver's seat – while remaining in their office.
This technological advancement presents another convenience for insurers seeking to preview risk for underwriting, supplementing any current live video they use for policy acquisition and claim management purposes. Drones not only minimize the risk to claims professionals during damage assessment rooftop inspections, but in the instance of a catastrophe, adjusters will no longer be restricted from accessing an insured property. The live-streamed aerial coverage also helps insurers process more claims in a shorter period of time.
"With the fires in the west, and the flooding down south, providing adjusters access to drones will save a lot of time and frustration for the claimant experiencing the loss, and the adjuster trying to help," says founder Louis Ziskin.
At present, DropIn offers solutions for risk evaluation, fraud reduction, and data analysis during the complete risk life cycle. From the time of the quote, to purchase, claim, and ultimately renewal, insurers can communicate with their customers in a multitude of ways. These include, direct to customer, field, and partner resources, or DropIn's on-demand workforce of Droperators and Drone Pilots (who act as a proxy, and third party verification).
The DropIn platform enables insurers to use on-demand live video for policy acquisition and management by harnessing the power of the video camera inside the smartphone that nearly everyone carries. It eliminates the need for the underwriter/claims adjuster to travel and provides access to customer with unprecedented immediacy. Live video options include direct to customer, direct to field or partner resource, our on-demand workforce known as Droperators, and on-demand drones.
