BRAINTREE, Mass., May 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- OnSource, the platform that connects insurance companies with third-party vehicle and property photo inspections via smart phone apps, has recently partnered with Smart Picture Technologies to improve the speed and accuracy of collecting and recording measurements, right from the photo.
Smart Picture Technologies' patent-pending technology platform enables users to capture Smart Picture images which contain millions of measurement data points. Measurements are calculated instantaneously and users can edit and share Smart Pictures directly from OnSource's portal. This process can save considerable time when collecting measurements in the field.
"Smart Picture has created powerful solutions in the home improvement and real estate industries so we're very enthusiastic to bring SmartPicture to the insurance industry, as well," says founder and CEO, Kari Myllykoski. "Our technology uses any smart phone and increases productivity, improves accuracy, prevents human errors, and saves time and money spent in any type of work or process which requires measuring and estimating, like processing an insurance claim"
This technology can be used by OnSource's photo inspectors and with their suite of customer self-serve inspection apps. By using OnSource's photo claims apps, customers can snap photos using a "smart target" and all measurements are automatically captured.
"We're really excited to partner with Smart Picture. Adding this technology to our current inspection process makes a lot of sense for our clients who want to make collecting measurements easier and more accurate than ever before," says OnSource co-founder Tim Schneider.
Headquartered in Braintree, MA, OnSource enables companies to get fast, fair and efficient auto and property inspections through intuitive self-serve smartphone apps and an extensive national network of more than 14,000 photo inspectors. Backed by a team of quality assurance analysts and support professionals, inspections are completed quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively each and every time.
