Betterview Partners with Loss Control 360 to Integrate On-Demand Drone Imagery & Data into their Loss Control 360 Carrier Platform
San Francisco, Calif., May 8, 2017 – Betterview, one of the leading platforms & service providers for capturing and analyzing data from drones, has announced it has partnered with Loss Control 360 (LC360) to enable LC360 users to order and retrieve Betterview aerial reports through its carrier inspection platform.
LC360 Carrier is a customizable loss control software platform that can be tailored to the specific needs of personal & commercial lines carriers. LC360 can automate every aspect of the loss control workflow allowing insurers to collect information, analyze data and mitigate risk quickly and easily.
“Loss control has always been a manually intensive process from the initial site inspection to the submission of the final report,” explained David Tobias, Co- Founder & COO, Betterview. “As digital technologies have streamlined underwriting and claims operations, loss control inspectors are still relegated to collecting and managing data through manual processes, such as: drive-by inspections, climbing up ladders and inspecting roofs or manually typing notes and uploading images into various Word documents,” said Tobias.
With Loss Control 360, inspection requests created by underwriting can be routed to the appropriate vendor or in-house inspector automatically. The inspector can then use the web based application or offline-capable tablet app to fill out standardized inspection forms, take photos and make recommendations. Once complete, the inspector can sync field results, and complete the survey through an intuitive web interface.
“Our mission is to build custom loss control solutions to help insurance carriers streamline their workflow,” said Rob Mikulec, COO, LC360. “Instead of requiring our users to log into the Betterview platform, then type in the same policy information again, users can now request this information through the LC360 Carrier platform and automatically have drone inspection images and data inserted into their reports,” explained Mikulec.
Betterview’s drone inspections capture an average of 350 roof and property images in approximately 20 minutes or less. Once the images are captured, deep learning and computer vision systems, aided by roofing and construction experts, analyze the photos and tag 87 common issue types. Betterview then generates and delivers a summary report of property and building data (10–20 photos per building) as a PDF to be stored in the insurance carrier’s document management system for compliance purposes.
