NEW YORK, July 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- QBE North America announced today a strategic partnership with Flyreel, Inc., a leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform for property insurance, to help customers manage risk and prevent loss through an AI-assisted tool. Allowing customers to conduct their home inspections at their convenience and on their terms, is the best and safest way for QBE to ensure customers get the right coverage tailored to their needs.
This new service offers QBE customers access to effortless self-service property inspections. Utilizing the AI-assistant tool, customers can document interior and exterior data including property features, materials and more—all while identifying hazards and risks using advanced computer vision technology. This provides a streamlined inspection process without the need of a third-party inspector entering the customer's home.
"As an early adopter to digital transformation, QBE is helping customers to easily conduct home inspections and gain insights into managing risks," said Fred Dabney, Vice President, Affiliated. "QBE believes strongly in empowering customers with the most advanced tools available to help them obtain the right coverage for their homes. This progressive approach will help our customers even more given our new virtual world."
"The best thing is that we are able to do this on our own, at home by ourselves and on our own time." – QBE Customer
The identification of risks and hazards through Flyreel's self-guided inspections helps QBE quickly and efficiently support customers by improving the safety within their homes. "QBE is committed to helping customers understand and reduce their risk exposure while leveraging our global community of experts.
