The challenges faced by claims adjusters and restoration professionals

Manual floor plan sketching

As claims adjusters and restoration professionals, one of the biggest challenges you face is the process of manually sketching floor plans and capturing images to document a property loss. In the past, this task was time-consuming and prone to errors. It requires meticulous measurements, calculations and intricate drawings to accurately represent a property’s layout. This manual approach consumes valuable resources and delays the entire workflow.

Inaccuracies and errors in traditional floor plan sketching

Traditional floor plan sketching methods may lead to inaccuracies and errors. Even the most experienced professionals could make mistakes in their measurements or calculations. These errors could have significant consequences, causing delays in the claims assessment process or leading to incorrect decisions. Additionally, discrepancies between the sketch and the actual property layout may result in misunderstandings between adjusters, restoration professionals and other stakeholders involved in the process.

The need for a streamlined workflow solution

Given the challenges associated with manual floor plan sketching and photo documentation, there is a clear need for a streamlined workflow to simplify and automate the process. As industry leaders in documentation, iGUIDE and Verisk saw this as an opportunity to collaborate to develop a solution.
